Head of Development
Negotiable subject to experience
Greenwich, full-time, permanent (flexible working arrangements considered for the right candidate)
The Greenwich Foundation is seeking to appoint a new Head of Development to implement a new revenue fundraising strategy following the completion of a high-profile campaign to conserve The Painted Hall.
The Painted Hall has captured peoples imagination for over 300 years and is referred to as the Sistine Chapel of the UK.
The task and opportunity for the new Head of Development is not simply to build on the success of the Painted Hall Project, but to develop the current donor base and build the pipeline to secure income that will contribute to the financial stability of the Old Royal Naval College in the long term.
The hugely successful Painted Hall Project leaves behind a fundraising legacy that will enable the team to generate sustainable revenue income. It provides the foundations for a new fundraising programme to support our on-going conservation work as well as our education packages and public access programmes.
Our core grant funding decreased by 15% in 2016/17 and it will only continue to do so over time and we must anticipate that it will eventually cease.
The imperative is for us to build a sustainable future that will preserve the iconic buildings of the Old Royal Naval College and its treasures for generations to come. Our immediate priorities are to deepen relationships with our individual and organisational donors, our members and our American Friends.
