Do you have a proven track record of fundraising, business development and building relationships?


Across the Science Museum Group, we are committed to sustaining and growing our unique collections to reveal wonder to our audiences, allowing them to have fun and learn about science in an informal environment.


To support us with this and our ongoing 'masterplan' work, we are looking for a Senior Development Executive to champion and manage the individual Patrons programme at the National Railway Museum in York.

You will have strong presentation, communication and interpersonal skills, as well as resilience and drive.


You will be offered excellent benefits, including 25 days holiday plus 8 bank holidays, a contributory pension scheme, BUPA medical and dental care, an annual season ticket loan and numerous staff discounts whilst developing your career in a world class museum group.
