At Dunch Arts in New York, we seek a dynamic and accomplished non-profit executive to join our fast-growing team of change-makers as a senior consultant.

At Dunch Arts, we believe in the power of the arts to change lives. United by our passion for culture, our commitment to creativity, and our professional excellence, the Dunch Arts team hails from diverse backgrounds around the globe. Daily, we immerse ourselves in best practice fundraising, strategic planning, digital innovation, and executive search for arts and cultural organizations. We value addressing the pressing issues of today while developing the leaders of tomorrow.

Our clients on three continents turn to us for critical thinking about new challenges in a fast-changing landscape. They partner with us to forge and fund new paths forward, turn vision into innovation, and secure next-chapter leadership. We regularly ask “Why?”, “Why not?” and “What would need to change to make that new vision possible?”

The senior consultants in our firm are energetic, optimistic, hard-working field leaders who think intelligently about the future of arts and society. They are smart, flexible, and entrepreneurial, with a passion for creating and testing new ideas. They are generous about sharing their expertise, and they’re excited to teach and mentor the next generation of arts leaders through our Dunch Arts Management Fellowship program, which identifies and recruits the best post-graduate talent from around the United States each year.

We’ve been called “the Navy SEALS of fundraising” by a prominent funder because we move quickly, inject energy and momentum into organizations, and propel our clients towards success. To succeed with us, you’ll need to be a stellar fundraiser, with strong functional experience in every facet of development and a sophisticated approach to financial and organizational strategy. In addition, you’ll also have strong management chops to help you lead consulting teams on- and off-site, create organizational business plans, facilitate Board strategic planning processes, write and teach others about culture and business, and manage multiple clients and their donors with discretion.

Recently, we began working at the fascinating intersection of for-profit technology and the nonprofit arts sector. Right now, we’re behind the scenes on several large commercial digital projects that will have broad impact in 2016 and beyond. When you join our firm, you can expect to work in the present and future tenses simultaneously, and to experience your own impact as change happens all around you.

Does this environment sound like one where you can thrive? Where you’ll find the job variety, continued learning, and professional impact that you seek?

To join our team, tell us about what motivates you: what do you think needs to change about our field, and how will you make a positive contribution to that change? Address these topics in your cover letter, attach a resume and salary history, and prepare for a stimulating conversation! Please submit your application materials as a single PDF document to jobs@duncharts.com, and we look forward to talking with you.

We are currently recruiting full-time, salaried employees in our New York office with competitive compensation and benefits, but we’ll consider alternative staffing arrangements on a case-by-case basis. We are a proudly equal opportunity employer and a Women and Minority Owned Business Enterprise.
