Manifesta seeks a charismatic, experienced fundraiser to join its dynamic international team of professionals at its Amsterdam Headquarters.

The Sponsorship and Fundraising Coordinator (part-time/freelance, 20 hrs/week) will plan, coordinate and implement the fundraising activities of the Manifesta Foundation and of the Manifesta Biennial editions. This exciting and challenging role will involve work on Manifesta 10 (currently hosted by the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg), Manifesta 11 (to be hosted by the city of Zurich in 2016) and beyond.

Manifesta Foundation’s fundraising activities include corporate sponsorship, a private benefaction campaign and grants from an extensive portfolio of national and international funding bodies.

The fundraising activities cover the operational funding of the Manifesta Foundation as well as project-based funding initiatives relating to the development and delivery of the Manifesta Biennials, and our diverse international projects including symposia, publications and exhibitions.

Manifesta Foundation currently receives no permanent funding therefore the key task of this coordinator is to develop long-term sustainable relationships with funders.

The Sponsorship and Fundraising Coordinator will work within our international Amsterdam and Host City based teams and will collaborate closely with the Manifesta Director, the Head of Communications and Marketing, the Biennial General Coordinator and members of the management team.

There is great potential for professional development within this function. The expectation is that the Sponsorship and Fundraising Coordinator will develop his/her own team of international professionals and coordinate/oversee their work.
