Work with us: Development Administrator

Awards for Young Musicians is committed to tackling the systemic inequalities of opportunity across the arts sector. We welcome applications from across UK society.

This new role presents an opportunity to develop a career in fundraising and support young musicians across the UK in the process

About Awards for Young Musicians

Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) exists because musical talent is everywhere but opportunity isn’t: family finances and other obstacles too often get in the way. We’re here to change this in two key ways:

We support young musicians from low-income families with funding and other help
We support music education through training, advocacy and research.

Established in 1998 we work across genres and across the UK. We’re currently supporting around 800 individual young people.

As the Development Administrator you will have the exciting opportunity to grow your career within a fast growing and ambitious organisation. You’ll be part of a fantastic team: collegiate, creative, dynamic, highly motivated, and resilient. Although we all work from home, we meet regularly in person too and everyone works together closely to make the greatest possible difference to the lives of the young people AYM is here for.

Role overview

You’ll primarily support the Development Manager with administrative systems and processes to manage donor and Trust funder relationships. You will also assist with looking after our existing and potential donors and Trust funders, assisting with events management and research as well as helping with funding applications and database management.

You’ll report to and work closely with the Development Manager. You’ll also work with the Events Programmer to ensure the successful running of fundraising concerts and the Digital and Communications Co-ordinator to create fundraising communications and content. You will also have regular contact with other AYM colleagues e.g. the Chief Executive and Chair.

This is a homeworking position with some flexibility required to travel for occasional meetings and events. As our partners and projects are UK wide, so is this travel. Office equipment will be supplied as required. Any travel costs will be reimbursed.
