Development and Events Coordinator

We're pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for a Development and Events Coordinator to join the team at Arts Catalyst on a fixed term basis.

The Development and Events Coordinator will provide vital support to the organisation, through securing income and assisting with programme delivery. Working closely with the Executive Director and Artistic Director, they will undertake a range of income generation and fundraising activities, including seeking partnerships and funding from higher education, companies, trusts and foundations, and developing patron and friends schemes. They will assist them with events and programme delivery, including research, event management, and documentation and evaluation of activities.

Working primarily with the Executive Director and Programme Curator, as Arts Catalyst is a small organisation, the postholder will also work closely at times with the Artistic Director, Communications Officer, artists, freelancers, and associates.

The position will suit someone who has worked in arts administration and/or art marketing. Training in fundraising and development will be provided. 

Please note that this is a new position funded by Wellcome Trust offered on a fixed-term, 2.5-year basis. There is the potential for the position to be extended, subject to further fundraising.
