Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with one of London's most exciting new museums as they look to appoint their new Head of Development. In 2017, this new heritage attraction will take visitors on a journey through 500 years of social and communications history and offer an interactive ride on one of London’s lost landmarks. The Head of Development will play a key role within the Senior Management team and help to ensure the museum’s successful future.

The Head of Development will lead and develop the fundraising team and will guide the organisation into their new revenue fundraising period following the successful completion of the capital fundraising project. The successful applicant will primarily focus on corporate fundraising, inheriting a small portfolio of corporate supporters and using extensive, existing networks to ensure new corporate support increases.

The selected candidate will have strong experience of new business corporate fundraising and will also have had exposure to different revenue streams, including major donor and membership schemes. The organisation is at the beginning stages of revenue fundraising, and so you will possess a keen interest and passion for making an impact from a new business perspective. The selected candidate will also have experience of maintaining a strong case for support and ensuring small teams of fundraisers adhere to agreed fundraising propositions.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a fundraising professional to make an impact to what will be one of London's most important cultural landmarks. If interested in pursuing this role, provide a Word version of your CV; selected candidates will be provided further information on how to apply.
