This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join a brilliant art based not-for-profit organisation, Dash Arts. They create exceptional artistic experiences that bridge divides across art forms, cultures, languages and communities. Over the last 15 years, they've created award-winning new work with over 9,000 artists and participants for audiences of over 350,000 worldwide.

To realise these ambitions, they are working to raise over £600,000 over the next three years for the project budgets and building significant relationships with venues and festivals to co-produce and tour the shows.

Under Chief Executive Josephine Burton, Dash Arts has been undergoing significant changes over the last two years to establish a strong platform from which to develop the organisation and its work.

As a charity, Dash looks to philanthropy and commercial partnerships for support (in addition to its Arts Council of England grant) and has taken the first steps towards building a professional and effective fundraising function.

The organisation is now ready to appoint its first permanent Head of Development.

Dash Arts Head of Development
Location: Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial Street, London E1 6AB.
Compensation: Package of circa £45,000 per annum 3 days a week (Pro rata)
Contract: Permanent

This role is extremely exciting as it allow the postholder to have a wide range of opportunities to strategize and raise funds from high value sources. They need someone who has great experience with major donors, and ideally some experience of proposal writing across a range of sources too.
Dash Arts does not expect the new postholder to have had experience of raising funds from all fundraising sources listed in the pack. However, they should have the ability to critically analyse, and prioritise and implement different fundraising methods as appropriate. Therefore, the role is 'hands on' and is varied in its opportunities.

This is a really exciting time to join Dash Arts, so if you are interested in learning more about the role, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Hannah at Harris Hill on Hannah.laking@harrishill.co.uk or call her on 02078207331. She will be able to have a chat and provide you with a full job pack.

Closing date for applications: 9.00 am Monday 31st of January 2022
First stage interviews: W/C 7th February 2022
