Arts Jobs


Development Manager, The Old Market Charitable Trust


In the eight years since the STOMP team took over TOM, they have invested over £1m of their own resources into the building and operations, one of the largest acts of philanthropic giving in the city’s cultural history.  The artist’s backing has allowed TOM a unique independence and a strong creative ethos. Our backing from commercial artists has given us the confidence and vision to think big, to take risks and to be strategic.

However, this resource is not infinite, so we are changing the way we work.  Over the last 12 months, we have been through a period of development that has relaunched the venue as an independent charitable trust.  This new structure will allow the venue to better articulate its value to the city, build solid foundations from which to grow, and diversify our funding portfolio.  That's where this new role comes in.  

We are looking for a brilliant Development Manger to join our senior management team.  You’ll have bags of experience securing funding in the arts, come fresh with new ideas and, most importantly, a passion for what we do.  

With a newly formed board of trustees and an ambitious business plan about to launch, we are excited to create this new post so we can secure our future and realise our ambitions.

The Old Market is committed to being an Equal Opportunities Employer and actively encourages applications from individuals with a variety of backgrounds, experience and perspectives.

Deadline for applications:  Noon, Tuesday 28 May 2019

Interviews:  Wed 05 June 2019
