Memberships Manager

Permanent, full time, up to £28.5k

Britten Pears Arts is a pioneering music, arts and heritage charity based on the Suffolk coast at two popular, historic visitor destinations: The Red House and Snape Maltings. We emerged from the creative partnership of Benjamin Britten, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, and his professional and personal partner, singer Peter Pears.

Britten and Pears shared a progressive vision for music and the arts to be useful. Our founders’ vision inspires all our activities: from work with our local communities to our national leadership roles in the fields of talent development and music for health & wellbeing.

Britten Pears Arts’ Development Team is responsible for raising over a third of the charity’s annual revenue, so is fundamental to the continuation – and growth – of the inspiring activity delivered across the organisation.

The Memberships Manager is the first point of contact for Friends. Our Friends and other Members are our most loyal and dedicated supporters and are at the heart of our audience and charitable mission. This post is responsible for delivering the highest standard of customer care at all times to our Friends and Members and, together with the Director of Development and Head of Individual Giving, the post holder will drive and implement the strategic delivery of membership, including developing recruitment and retention.

We are looking for candidates with experience gained in a similar role, who can demonstrate the skills needed to deliver income by nurturing relationships, together with excellent administration skills and the ability to make a positive contribution to the team and BPA as a whole.
