Music Network is recruiting a Development Officer

11 March 2020

Development Officer at Music Network
2-Year Contract
Salary: €30,000

Music Network seeks to recruit a dynamic, experienced and highly-motivated professional to fulfil the role of Development Officer. This new, full-time position has been created with the support of Business to Arts and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht as part of the Fundraising Fellowship, Ireland programme. The successful candidate will participate in a structured programme of mentoring and development activities delivered by Business to Arts and their partners. The Fellowship aims to provide training and professional development to enhance long-term careers in fundraising and development for the Irish cultural sector.

The successful candidate will play a significant role in shaping and delivering Music Network’s Development Strategy, working in a tight-knit and supportive environment. The organisation’s Communications Manager will provide day-to-day support and team lead for the Development Officer.

The Development Officer will deliver year-round Development and Fundraising initiatives. The key focus of this role is revenue generation – e.g. through bespoke engagement initiatives (Friends and Corporate Membership Schemes) and excellent relationship management (Corporate Sponsorship and Partnerships). We have ambitious plans to grow over the next 3 years and central to these is an increase in self-generated resources. We envisage a period of intense, sustained capacity building in the next 24 months.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrable experience in the key aspects of arts marketing/fundraising and a genuine  interest in music. Based at Music Network’s offices on Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, the contract is offered on a two-year fixed term basis initially, with a six month probation period.
