Director of Business Development

Conservatoire for Dance and Drama

Closing date: Noon on Monday 30 March

Interviews: Monday 7 April

An exceptional opportunity to be part of an outstanding and world-leading institution, training performing arts professionals of the future.

The Conservatoire for Dance and Drama is a collaboration of six prestigious schools delivering world leading education and professional training in the performing arts. Although legally autonomous organisations, the schools work together as members of the Conservatoire to train performing artists and production professionals, including actors, choreographers, circus artists, dancers, designers, directors, stage managers, and technical theatre practitioners.

We seek a new Director of Business Development to play a leading role in supporting the Conservatoire to deliver world leading education and specialist vocational training in the performing arts.

As we enter a new and exciting period in our evolution we will be growing and developing. As part of a small but passionate team, you will drive the Conservatoire’s strategy for growth in support of its ambitious Strategic Plan for 2019-24. You will lead on the strategic and operational development of new partnerships and income-generating activities for the Conservatoire, including fundraising and business development, public affairs and advocacy, partnership working and knowledge exchange. As we operate in a small staff base, you will need to be both hands-on and strategic in your approach and leadership style.

You will have experience of business development and/or fundraising in a higher education or charity setting, including developing and implementing strategy, and a track record in developing and maintaining relationships with wide-ranging audiences and stakeholders, both internal and external.

If you feel able to bring the passion, skills, experience and commitment needed for this role, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
