Making Tracks singer, photo by Lizzie CoombesWe are a small charity with big ambition, determined to bring creativity, life-skills and artistic excellence to some of the most disadvantaged people in the UK. Over the last five years we have focussed on strategic and sustainable growth, leading to an impressive increase in beneficiary numbers of 260% through our programmes Music in Prisons, Sounding Out and Making Tracks.

Our income has grown steadily to accommodate this expansion in that time, by 95%, including a significant increase in our earned income. We have a strong track record of securing income from Trusts and Foundations and have made good progress with developing earned income streams. Our current strategic plan concentrates on further development of earned income sources and exploration of increasing income from individuals and corporations.

This position is a great opportunity for an individual with skills and vision to make a significant impact at an exciting time for us, as we explore new possibilities and look to further build on our success in developing our programmes, reach and income. 

The key objectives of the position will be to:

  • Continue to sustainably increase the organisation’s income by implementing our income generation strategy and by leading development and implementation of new fundraising initiatives
  • Explore and drive forward further opportunities for the Trust to become involved in commissioning/sub-contracting in prison and probation
  • Lead on managing all the Trust’s relationships with charitable funders, including researching, building relationships, writing proposals and reporting (supported by the Operations Manager)
  • Proactively develop and foster relationships with new supporters and partners
  • Engage with the CAN3 organisational development programme
