Development Manager

Could you be HighTide’s new Development Manager?

We are seeking a Development Manager who is excited by our artistic mission.  To find them, we will make this an applicant-tailored recruitment process.  This means we are recruiting with open minds and want the role to be responsive to the successful candidate.  You will need to have at least two years of professional fundraising experience, but we will support you in the transition if this role is more senior than your current one.  If you’re already an experienced fundraiser, we want to create the right space and challenges for you. 

HighTide is an East of England theatre company and we would be interested to hear from candidates who live in the region, as well as those in London. 

This is a part time role (3 days a week).  We will be flexible in our approach to working hours, working from home requests, and accommodating to caring responsibilities, wherever possible.  All depending on your experience, we’ll consider what feels best for you and HighTide.

HighTide is committed to equality, equity and diversity.  We welcome applications from candidates with backgrounds which are historically underrepresented in the arts – such as those who have experienced barriers due to their working-class origins; are from the global majority; or who identify as d/Deaf or disabled.
