                        Director of Corporate Partnerships

                        Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Director of Corporate Partnerships is responsible for developing and maintaining the Arts Council’s relationships with the corporate community in the Capitol region, which represent a significant piece of its annual revenue. This position is responsible for the execution of the Arts Council’s workplace giving program, which aims to engage employees of the corporate community with the arts in order to generate philanthropic support for the region’s arts and cultural institutions. As a member of the management team the Director of Corporate Partnerships is responsible for managing and directing staff and will be ultimately responsible for the success of this important piece of the business.

                        The Director of Corporate Partnerships works with large and small business to create a custom-tailored giving campaign for each business environment, providing a host of interactive events and activities to solicit new and renewed contributions. This position will identify strategies and implement programs to build stronger relationships with local companies and their employees—both top-down from the leadership level and bottom-up, creating grassroots enthusiasm and interest in supporting the arts.

                        As a member of the Council’s management team, the Director of Corporate Partnerships is also responsible for and involved in developing strategies, initiatives and programs to not only achieve our annual budget goals but to hopefully exceed the annual projections.  Prospect development is also a significant part of this position as well as maintaining current corporate relationships and campaigns.

                        This position relies heavily on the coordination and collaboration of the entire Arts Council team. The importance of communication as it relates to how campaigns are progressing cannot be stressed enough and the ability to strategize and demonstrate quick problem-solving skills to prevent losses in workplace campaigns will be absolutely critical in this position.

                        Requirements include:

                        • Bachelor’s Degree with advanced degrees a bonus.
                        • Background in managing a small team of employees
                        • At least 3 years’ experience in fund development with experience in Corporate philanthropy
                        • Excellent written and verbal English language communications skills.
                        • Flexibility in managing multiple priorities.
                        • Strong organizational skills, attention to detail and commitment to accuracy.
                        • Self-starter
                        • Dependable and able to work independently
                        • Strong customer service skills and the ability to work with diverse groups and personality types
                        • High energy with a strong drive for success
                        • Goal oriented

                        This is a full time position with competitive benefits and salary that requires work outside of normal business hours with some over-night travel. For consideration, please submit a cover letter with salary requirements and resume to hr@letsgoarts.org. Applicants who do not submit all requested information will not be considered. Only candidates selected for interview will be contacted. No phone calls, please. Greater Hartford Arts Council is committed to an inclusive workplace.
