This is an exciting opportunity to lead on fundraising and development for celebrated new music label and charity, NMC Recordings, playing a vital role in securing the long-term future of this important institution.

Described by Sir Simon Rattle as a ‘national treasure’, NMC’s releases have received multiple Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine awards and has been commended by the Royal Philharmonic Society for its "outstanding contribution to the furthering of contemporary music in Britain".

NMC is devoted to enriching cultural life by connecting listeners worldwide with exceptional contemporary classical music by composers from Britain and Ireland.

We are looking for a highly motivated, organised, and technically confident fundraiser with a minimum of two years’ experience.
