Poetry Ireland is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to connect people with poetry, and in doing so create opportunities for poets. In September 2016 Poetry Ireland moved into its beautiful new home in Dublin’s Parnell Square. They are now embarked on ambitious and innovative plans for the redevelopment of this expansive Georgian townhouse as an all-island institution dedicated to poetry in all its forms.
Poetry Ireland is now seeking an experienced Development Manager with excellent communication skills and a strong network of contacts to help them realise their ambitions and deliver a robust fundraising programme. The flexibility that the role offers in terms of remote working and its 3-day per week nature may suit an experienced fundraiser with a proven track record seeking to achieve a greater work–life balance.
The Development Manager will lead the delivery of a capital fundraising and development plan in consultation with the Director and Board. You will be able to increase annual income through creating and implementing a sustainable funding strategy that incorporates Poetry Ireland’s Friends and Patron’s scheme, and can identify and develop further relationships with key potential supporters – from individuals to corporates.
If you have proven success in leading donor campaigns; an ability to engage with high-net worth individuals, corporates and trusts and foundations; and an appreciation of poetry and the arts, Poetry Ireland would love to hear from you.
