Shakespeare’s Globe is currently seeking a Membership Officer to join our Development team.

The role:
Working closely with the Patrons Manager, the Membership Officer will play a key supportive role in the raising of funds from individuals via the Globe’s Membership schemes. This will include recruitment, retention and stewardship of members, processing of payments and events management.

This role is a full-time post but we are happy to discuss flexible working options. Please note that because of the nature of the role, some evening and weekend hours will be required and this role cannot be exclusively worked from home (under usual circumstances).

The skills:
The successful candidate will have experience of using a CRM system (such as Tessitura) in a development or marketing department and will have previously stewarded customers, donors or members in a not-for-profit, charity or arts environment. They will be able to prioritise, maintain accuracy and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment, utilizing their excellent planning, administration and organisational skills.

In addition, the successful candidate will understand and always embody the Globe’s mission, values and ways of working:
• Commitment to the principles of equality, diversity and anti-racism, and the ability to implement these within all areas of work.
• Supportiveness to others.
• Thoughtfulness, reflecting, and problem solving.
• Influencing and communicating with others.

The team:
Shakespeare’s Globe is an educational charity administered by the Shakespeare Globe Trust. Shakespeare’s Globe receives no annual subsidy from the Arts Council for our core artistic and educational work or for current capital projects. The Development department therefore must seek new sources of non-core funds and resources to support all the activities and capital projects for Shakespeare’s Globe. The department is also responsible for initiating and developing short and long-term strategies and plans to secure funding projects that meet and develop the objectives of Shakespeare’s Globe and to engage the wider organisation with the importance of fundraising to secure a long term and sustainable future.
