Fundraising Executive Assistant

Permanent, full-time
Salary: Commensurate with experience

The three Monteverdi ensembles – the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique – are a leading force on the international music scene. World-class musicians and singers from many nationalities come together to share in the distinctive vision of our founder and music director, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, in ground-breaking projects that span eight centuries of musical masterpieces.

Buoyed by the success of our recent projects including Monteverdi 450, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem, our Berlioz 2018 Series and Handel’s Semele, this is an exciting time for an outstanding candidate to join our busy team. Future prestigious international tours will include Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini in 2019, and our ambitious Beethoven 250 project in 2020. To complement our concerts, we have plans to expand our Apprentices Programme to include conductors and to develop our choral and orchestral education initiatives with the collaboration of our expert musicians.

As a charity without public subsidy, we rely entirely on the generosity of our benefactors. We have an enthused and growing supporter base and ahead of our next UK and US fundraising initiatives, we are looking for a highly-organised, detail-orientated self-starter to support the General Director. There will be a particular focus on assisting with our membership scheme to ensure we raise the necessary funds to realise our ambitions and long-term goals. The successful candidate will have proven skills in stewarding relationships, researching donors and funding opportunities and ensuring database records remain effective; they will also have a persuasive writing style and a pleasant face-to-face manner.

CLOSING DATE: 10am Monday 22nd July 2019
