The talented and driven individual who joins the AANT team will be instrumental in engaging current and new supporters in the US and encouraging them to give, in order to help deliver the NT’s powerful mission and vision. As the NT’s program of work in the US continues to grow, the AANT is committed to further developing their fundraising and are seeking a candidate with the skills, aptitude and drive to accomplish this.

The Deputy Director of Development will partner with the Director of Development in all aspects of running the AANT.
The Deputy Director of Development will travel to London at least once a year to meet with the National Theatre team and engage with NT productions, projects, and programs.
