Welcome to Bristol Beacon. A symbol of hope and community. A focal point for music in the city. A gathering space, illuminating the way ahead. A place of welcome, warmth and light. An open invitation to the city for everyone to come and share in the joy of live music.
Our purpose is to create unity and joy through live music. We believe in the power of music to break down barriers and cross boundaries, and we celebrate this in everything we do.
Bristol beacon is run by Bristol Music Trust. Launched in 2011, Bristol Music Trust is an independent organisation and registered charity (no. 1140898) created to develop Bristol Beacon’s artistic programme and promote music and music making in the city through Bristol Plays Music.
Following the renaming of Colston Hall to Bristol Beacon in September 2020, we are working to unify the performance and education aspects of our work under one name: Bristol Beacon, and developing a new strategic vision for the organisation.
We are in a period of major change for the Trust since our transformation project began in June 2018 to deliver a c.£50 million redevelopment of our venue. This will see a complete refurbishment of our two main spaces and the creation of a new venue and music education centre in the cellars.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Development Manager to support delivery of a fundraising programme to encourage engagement and support for Bristol Beacon. Sitting within a team of five people, and with a focus on corporate giving, your role will also cover a wide area of fundraising activities. We are looking for someone with experience in fundraising, across a variety of income streams. While you may be stronger in a particular field of fundraising, you should have worked in corporate giving. You should have experience in organising and managing fundraising events, and have outstanding communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to build relationships with people at all levels, both internally and externally.
The Development Officer will support the work of the Development Team by bringing their previous experience of supporting fundraising and their ability to build strong relationships and give excellent customer service to our supporters. You will have strong organisational and interpersonal skills, experience of contributing to funding applications and either previous experience or an interest in the focus of Trusts and Foundations. This role provides management of our membership scheme and brings a professional, adaptable and proactive approach to the work of the team. This role is a great opportunity to build experience whilst working for a vibrant arts organisation at a pivotal time.
If you have questions in relation to either role, then for an informal chat please contact Rosa Corbishley, Development Director email@example.com
If you would like to join our team, please read the Job Description and supporting information for the role below and submit your completed application and equal opportunities monitoring form to firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications for both roles is: 9.00am on Friday 29 January 2021, however as the Development Manager role has been advertised previously, we may close applications early if we have sufficient applicants.
