Head of Membership and Fundraising Appeals

Permanent Contract

The Royal Opera House offers world-class opera, ballet, music and dance live on stage at our iconic theatre in Covent Garden, and reaches out to audiences across the UK and beyond through ROH Cinema and digital content on other platforms. It is also a charity and we could not maintain our extensive programme of artistic work, or our community and outreach projects, without the support of our philanthropists and members. In September 2018, the Royal Opera House will launch a reopening of the building, following the Open Up project, when we will open our doors to an even wider group of people to experience what the Royal Opera House has to offer. This is an exciting opportunity to shape the future of membership at ROH in support of our aim for many more people to enjoy and engage with exceptional opera and ballet.
