With an enviable international reputation for world class performances and a vital role at the heart of the South Australian community, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) is one of the nation's most exciting performing arts organisations.
Reporting to the Managing Director, this role will be a pivotal member of the Leadership Team, responsible for strengthening the ASO’s revenue base through the continued development of key partnership and fundraising initiatives. Key responsibilities include:
- developing and executing fundraising strategies and campaigns to enhance existing relationships and generate new partnerships;
- nurturing pre-existing relationships to ensure maximum value is realised for both parties;
- ensuring the management, growth and creation of financially strong and mutually beneficial partnerships;
- identifying and securing appropriate Government funding sources.
Applications are encouraged from well-rounded candidates with the ability to demonstrate success in developing and implementing innovative approaches to enhance and maximise corporate sponsorship or fundraising opportunities. Appropriate qualifications and proven experience in developing and maintaining strategic partnerships is essential, as is the ability to effectively engage with internal and external stakeholders. A sound understanding of contemporary fundraising approaches will be required along with experience in preparing and presenting proposals to, and securing support from, corporates, trusts and foundations.
Experience in the performing arts is not a prerequisite but a genuine affinity with the ASO will be expected.
This is a rare opportunity to join Adelaide’s largest performing arts company and make a significant contribution to both the organisation and to the cultural heart of the State.
