Head of Development and Communications, Orchestras for All

Based out of our office in Cecil Sharp House in Camden, we are looking for a Head of Development and Communications to join our dynamic team on a part-time basis.

The role will initially be offered on a three day a week basis for six months from October 2017 at £33,000 per annum (pro rata). Subject to satisfactory progress and securing necessary funding, the role is expected to continue on these terms from March 2018.

The primary purpose of the role will be to implement OFA’s income generation and communications strategy as set out in the organisation’s 2017-2020 strategic plan. In collaboration with the OFA team and with administrative support from our Team Coordinator, you will identify and secure income from a range of sources and support the organisation to become an influencer in the sector.

We encourage candidates from a wide range of professional backgrounds and experience levels to apply. We see this role as an exciting development opportunity for an individual looking for career progression, a career change or looking to get back into work and we are interested in meeting a wide range of candidates. We believe that those with transferable experience (e.g. in voluntary sector strategy, relationship management, local authorities, donor bodies, corporate social responsibility (CSR), marketing / communications or business development) may be strong candidates, as well as those with traditional development and communications profiles.
