We have a vacancy for a Development Manager (Trusts and Statutory) at Cardboard Citizens.

Cardboard Citizens creates work with and for people who experience homelessness, inequity, or poverty. We make theatre, art and training which challenges injustice and empowers individuals to make change for themselves, and in their communities. Our small team delivers life changing theatre and vocational theatre training, reaching over 7,000 people each year.

Our organisation secures over £1m in voluntary funding annually. Our Development Manager, Trusts and Statutory will play a vital role in securing and growing the support which allows to make exceptional art and social change. You will manage a rich portfolio of existing funder relationships across the arts and social sector, will lead our strategy to grow support from our existing major funders, and work to identify new funding sources. You’ll also play a part in transforming our donor stewardship programme, finding new routes to engage and inspire our supporters, from cultivation events to online content.

Following the appointment of our Artistic Director Chris Sonnex, this is a pivotal moment in Cardboard Citizens’ 30-year history. A diverse range of statutory and trust income will allow us to introduce and grow our new programmes; which aim to demolish the barriers that homelessness, poverty and inequity create to the life changing possibilities of theatre and art. In the next three years, Cardboard Citizens will radically grow our community and impact, introduce a comprehensive new vocational training programme opening routes to careers in theatre, and embed an ambitious new multi-year project in our local community in Tower Hamlets.
