English Touring Opera

Job Title Development Manager

Line Manager Head of Development & Operations

Start date March 2023

Salary £30,000- £34,000 per annum, Full Time, commensurate with experience.

Closing Date: Monday 19 December, 10am

The Role

Join our Development department at English Touring Opera (ETO) and help us fundraise for and deliver ‘Opera that moves’. It’s an exciting time to join the organisation as we move into a new era with new General Director Robin Norton-Hale, and return to a full programme of live performance in theatres, delivering amazing productions and opportunities for communities across the country.

We are seeking a Development Manager who will work closely with the Head of Development & Operations to develop and deliver a strategy to increase our income from Trusts and Foundations, Major Gifts and Corporates by stewarding existing donors and growing support at all levels.

The successful candidate will communicate the quality and impact of English Touring Opera’s work to our existing and new supporters and play an important role in ensuring the future sustainability of the organisation.

You will have experience working in development in the cultural sector, with a proven track record of raising money from trusts, foundations and other grant makers. Your enthusiasm and passion for the arts will be matched by your ability to successfully identify, secure and steward major gifts across a range of projects and programme areas.  You will be skilled at writing compelling proposals and reports, working to deadlines and communicating effectively with colleagues, grant makers and audience members.

You will manage your own pipeline of Trust and Foundations, so will need to take initiative, prioritise, and organise your own work. You will take pride in offering the highest quality of supporter care from start to finish, creating impactful supporter journeys and engagement opportunities ensuring ETO supporters feel valued and part of our vision.

We are delighted to have secured two further years of Arts Council England funding as a National Portfolio Organisation. A condition of this continuing may be that ETO relocates out of London. We will shortly undertake a feasibility study to consult artists, venues, audiences and partners about this. The result may be that ETO relocates our offices outside the capital in 2025.

The role offers a competitive salary which will range from £30,000-£34,000 depending on experience.

The role will be based in our London office, with an option for some hybrid working.

We particularly encourage applications from disabled people and people from global majority backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the cultural sector.

About ETO

ETO has a unique place in British opera as the only mid-scale touring company offering regional venues, and thousands of audience members, outstanding opera performances and impactful Learning and Participation projects, across a significant national footprint. At the heart of our mission is a commitment to touring ambitious programmes of high-quality, innovative, and exciting opera performances that engage and inspire.

To apply

Please email your CV (max. two pages), a covering letter (max. two pages) outlining in detail why you are applying for the role and how your skills and experience make you a suitable candidate, and an equal opportunities and monitoring form to Jo Faulkner-Harvey: admin@englishtouringopera.org.uk

What We Do

Sixteenfeet has a strong connection to its Brixton base and a commitment to working with local communities. Our theatre productions bring classics up to date for young audiences, and our community projects work with local people to uncover the richness of their stories and experiences.

We specialise in outdoor theatre for children and families.

Between 2008 and 2018 we produced an annual promenade show, using our home base in South London’s beautiful Brockwell Park, and touring to some of the most special parks and green spaces across London. The scripts are commissioned adaptations with original music, from local artists.  These include much loved classics reimagined for a young urban generation and viewed through a contemporary lens, so themes say in Jungle Book – problematic in some ways – are looked at afresh in terms of the environment, belonging, inclusion, identity, and sustainability. We have worked in partnership with Attic Theatre Company to produce a production of Twelfth Night.

We’ve also presented open-air cabaret evenings with Catch Me a Song.

‘As spellbinding for adults as it is for kids…Precisely the sort of theatre

that bring our parks and green spaces to life’.

We also produce a programme of community projects including:

Providing workshops for primary and secondary school children

Short playwriting competitions

Creative writing sessions with Lambeth Elders

In 2022 we were invited to present the Theatre on Kew Season www.thatreonkew.com at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew and Wakehurst. Both productions were very well received. This is part of three year residency and we are planning our season for 2023.

Twelfth Night

 

I thought Twelfth Night was wonderful last night – such a talented and dynamic group of performers.  We also thought the weaving of music around the play worked extremely well.  We loved the intimate, affectionate relationship with the audience – it was a warm and affirming performance.

Thank you so much for looking after us so well and assembling such a talented group.

What a magical performance and great day out!

A great version of the story with amazing costumes, songs and live music to inspire and capture the imagination of children and adults alike!

Future

We have been asked back to Kew and Wakehurst for 2023 and our priority is to get sponsorship /funding in place for the season.

We are working with Brixton Youth Theatre to deliver a drama project for 7–11-year-old children from Refugee families and Asylum seekers in Lambeth.

We want to build our independent voluntary board of trustees.

This is an opportunity to be involved in a theatre company where your input really counts.

With the Board of Trustees’ help we intend to create a sustainable future for Sixteenfeet Productions.

We are looking for people who:

  • Believe in the power of theatre and the arts to bring people together.
  • Believe that art and culture should be accessible to all.
  • Are perhaps connected to the creative or cultural sector (whether personally or professionally).
  • Are able to give some time and energy to support the company
  • Have experience that would be relevant to delivering our goals (PR, fundraising, legal, educational) whether in the arts sector or elsewhere.

Board members will be expected to:

  • Attend 4 board meetings a year & AGM – at present all of these are being conducted over Zoom but in future we hope to hold at least one in-person meeting per year.
  • Come to performances of Sixteenfeet Productions when they occur.
  • Be prepared to give advice (usually over phone or email) about specific Issues.
  • Offer support on occasions where their expertise would be valuable to the organisation – e.g., offering advice on a specific area or looking over a funding application and giving feedback.

Trigger

Our Board is responsible for the success of Trigger’s operational and artistic health and output. They meet four times a year in order to develop and agree strategy, company budgets and project plans. Artistic plans are assessed in the light of financial, operational and reputational risks and opportunities. We currently have trustees who have a range of skills, experiences, and networks which they bring to the organisation.

We expect all our Trustees to have an understanding of the company’s strong commitment to the South West, however, you can be based anywhere in the UK.

Trigger are going through a period of exciting growth and development. Our selection as one of 10 creative teams to deliver a multi-million-pound project for UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK has entailed a rapid scale up of the company.

We are looking for an individual who can bring expertise and commitment to our already amazing board of trustees and help guide us through this growth. We want our Trustees to bring a broad range of viewpoints and experience; some will already have worked with Boards (either as a Trustee or as an Executive), and some may be joining a Board for the first time.

As a Trustee you will read the written reports sent out before each Board meeting, and come to the meetings prepared to ask questions, discuss, and act as a critical friend to the team to ensure that the charity is being run well.

We are specifically looking for a Finance Led trustee / Treasurer to support the future of Trigger with:

  • Minimum 10 years’ experience working in finance or fundraising
  • Experience of charity accounts
  • Ability to communicate and explain financial information to members of the Board and other stakeholders
  • An understanding of working in a small to medium organisation
  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities, and liabilities of trusteeship
