Contract Type
We're searching for a new Head of Development to lead the income generation strategy and delivery for both the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester (MSI) and the National Media Museum (NMeM) in Bradford.

There are ambitious plans in place for the development of MSI and NMeM: the transformation is already underway and there is much to do. We are therefore looking for a dynamic and enterprising Head of Development to drive these two terrific organisations forward. Having recently developed MSI's first ever original major exhibition, Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond, and with the forthcoming opening of a new interactive gallery in Bradford, the public programme and scope is ever more exciting and ambitious.

At this time of significant change, the incoming Head of Development will have the opportunity to shape the team and influence overarching fundraising strategy. You will take responsibility for the development and delivery of a strategic plan to drive philanthropic and sponsorship funding for both MSI and NMeM. As a member of the senior management team you are accountable for fundraising and income generation activity and will make a critical contribution to the achievement of the organisation's ambitious plans.

This is a hugely important, demanding and rewarding role and we are therefore looking for a natural leader with outstanding interpersonal, negotiating and influencing skills. You'll develop your team to deliver outstanding results and embed a culture and awareness of fundraising throughout the organisation.

We are looking for someone with a demonstrable track record of setting a vision and achieving change. Experience across a range of income streams is essential with particular focus on major donors, corporates and trusts. You'll bring significant experience of stakeholder management at all levels across complex organisations. And of course, a genuine affinity with the mission and vision of MSI, NMeM and SMG overall.

If your passion, skills and experience match those we are looking for, then we would very much like to hear from you. Please get in touch with a copy of your CV in the first instance to receive a full job pack from our North West consultant, Amelia Lee.

Please note, deadline is 9am on 28th September 2016 for completed applications with a view to interviewing on 4th October.

Your expert recruitment consultant is Amelia Lee, call today on 01612 331604 or email a.lee@edenbrown.com
