Belfast International Arts Festival invites applications for our Development and Fundraising activities – closing 7 Nov

Belfast International Arts Festival is Northern Ireland’s annual celebration of contemporary arts from home and abroad. Last year more than 64,000 people enjoyed and experienced over 120 events covering music, drama, dance, visual and digital arts, talks and literature from around the world.

BAIF is currently delivering the 57th annual edition, the 5th as an independent organisation, featuring artists from as far afield as Cuba, Japan and France as well as local talent from across Northern Ireland. The organisation has big ambitions to expand both our artistic remit and audience appeal and are looking for experienced fundraiser(s) to help us on this journey.

If you would like to help BIAF fulfil its ambitions, are a strategic thinker, excellent communicator, well organised, and a team player with a track-record of successful fundraising, then BIAF would like to hear from you.

The role(s) is to secure the essential financial resources that enable BIAF to present resonant, exciting and powerful art from home and abroad that connects with a wide variety of audiences and solidify the core company resources. You will have the support of the Artistic Director & Chief Executive, General Manager, Marketing Manager and Patrons group, to help create and build a new future for the organisation.

BIAF are open to a variety of engagement models including freelance agreements to deliver key responsibilities, or salaried posts (full-time and part-time).
