About the Roundhouse:
The Roundhouse’s purpose is to enable young people to realise their creative potential and to offer audiences, of all ages, new and extraordinary experiences in live music, theatre, dance, circus, spoken word, broadcast & digital. Our vision is to be a hub of outstanding performance and learning powered by great artists and young people.
We’re looking for a confident and experienced Senior Events and Celebrity Ambassador Manager to develop and lead the events team in delivering on a five year Events and Ambassador Strategy achieving significant growth in each of these areas.
The post-holder will lead the events team to achieve a fundraising events target of £500k pa, develop a series of cultivation events to support both the ongoing revenue needs and the capital project and review and redefine the Roundhouse Ambassador and celebrity engagement strategy.
Reporting to the Development and Communications Director, this is a senior position. Our ideal candidate will be ready to hit the ground running and will have significant experience in a leadership role developing and implementing strategic plans and organising high profile fundraising events. You will also have demonstrable experience of achieving challenging fundraising targets.
Excellent planning, organisational, project management and people management skills are essential as is experience of working with high net worth and high profile individuals and committees.
The Roundhouse is a charity and each year gives thousands of young people the chance to develop their skills and confidence through access to creative projects in music, media or performing arts. We believe in the power of creativity to transform lives. But we need to raise £2.3 million annually to fund this work – this role will help us achieve this.
The successful candidate must have a current and acceptable DBS check, or be willing to undertake one, due to the nature of the role.
