Interviewing Philanthropy roles with the Royal Albert Hall

It is a hugely exciting time for the Hall’s Philanthropy team, which is growing in line with the team’s ambitions and upcoming capital appeal.

We are delighted to be partnering with the Royal Albert Hall on three key appointments:

  • Senior Philanthropy Manager, £50,000 – £55,000 (new position)
  • Senior Trusts and Foundations Manager, £50,000 – £55,000 (new position)
  • Friends and Patrons Manager, £44,000 – £48,000

These important roles will leverage the Hall’s philanthropic potential and foster transformative relationships with high-value individuals and major funders.

Introduction from the Director of Development

Since the Hall opened our doors in 1871, it has been home to the world’s leading figures in music, dance, entertainment and conversation. From the Suffragettes to Stormzy, Elgar to Einstein, the Beatles to Bassey… icons have graced our stage. Today is no different, with an astonishing programme of high-profile performances across classical music, rock and pop, national events and the spoken word, creating breathtaking moments and lasting memories for everyone – as well as some unforgettable stewardship opportunities!

What happens on our stages forms a key part of a new and ambitious vision for the Hall that will ensure we remain the home to dreams and determination, contemplation and celebration – bringing people together to lift their spirits and inspire, with nearly 2 million people each year enjoying unforgettable experiences in our spectacular building. The new vision also has at its heart the development of our hugely successful, and expanding, outreach programme, supporting emerging artists and engaging the community.

Finally, we have plans for a significant and pioneering capital programme, impacting on almost every part of the building through an extended programme of work. An appeal to support this will be launching shortly, raising the money to ensure the Hall remains a much-loved venue for both audiences and artists alike long into the future.

We are now seeking to expand our philanthropy team to enable these ambitious plans to become a reality. Successful candidates will be joining a small but dynamic team who are bringing creative thinking, passion and energy to taking the Hall’s philanthropic support to the next level.
