LSA was founded, and continues to operate as a charity aiming to encourage and welcome all those who want to learn about art and design, irrespective of age, ability or personal circumstances. Our charitable activities include a Bursaries Scheme; Community Classes; Graduate Residency programme; and Schools Outreach Project. These activities open the door to many for whom the opportunity to learn about, and practise art, would otherwise be beyond reach.

As Fundraising & Development Lead you will work closely with the Principal, Deputy Principal (Business Support Services) and administration team. You will also be working closely with the Board of Directors. Initially your focus will be on:

• Building and developing relationships with major donors, including LSA patrons

• Researching, planning and writing funding propositions to help grow income from corporate partnerships, and charitable trusts and foundations;

• Developing Support Us page(s) and charitable activities on LSA website.

Your contribution will align with the overall vision, strategy and development of LSA, which is being driven by the senior management team and Board of Directors.
