How to apply

Live Music Now is looking for a Community Fundraising Officer to join our central team. This position requires the post holder to be based at one of Live Music Now’s offices, either in London (Somerset House) or Cardiff (Cardiff Bay).

This new position is offered as part of the Rank Foundation’s Time to Shine (T2S) programme, which gives successful candidates, known as “T2S leaders”, the opportunity to experience a 12-month paid leadership and development placement in a charity.

If you are currently unemployed, underemployed (working below your skillset) or looking for your first career step, we would love to hear from you!

As part of the T2S programme, you will spend around 15% of your time focusing on your personal and professional development, by attending leadership programme activities and development conferences throughout the year.  In addition, you will have access to internal training at Live Music Now, including grant research and writing, donor stewardship and volunteer management.

This is a great opportunity to explore your leadership potential as part of a well-established and successful programme while learning new skills in charity fundraising and communications.
