About the role
An exciting opportunity has opened up in the Philanthropy and External Relations Team for a Donor Liaison. This role provides polished, professional and discreet stewardship services to MSO’s patrons and donors. The incumbent also acts as a host/company representative at selected MSO events and performances.
The role requires a mature and polished individual with significant experiences in working with, and providing outstanding customer service to prominent high net worth patrons and individuals. Associated knowledge of ticketing and database processes is essential, as is an orchestral background/knowledge of orchestral music. It also requires strong customer service skills and a commitment to building and sustaining positive patron engagement to support the MSO and its objectives.
Due to the nature of the role and the MSO’s operations, it is expected that there will be a significant component of evening/after-hours work in this role.
This is an excellent time to be joining the MSO and a fantastic opportunity for a passionate arts professional. Working closely with a small but dedicated team, this role will be well-suited to someone looking to make a positive contribution to a much-loved cultural icon of Melbourne and Australia.
