Director of Development

Something incredible is about to happen in the heart of Scotland’s capital city. Could you be the person who helps make the dream a reality?

Are you an exceptional fundraiser who can raise the £25 million needed for a unique and ambitious project to restore and transform the historic West Princes Street Gardens which lie in the shadow of the iconic Edinburgh Castle?

You will need to have delivered several multi million pound capital campaigns for previous organisations and be experienced in operating at the highest level; as a member of a senior management team, leading a fundraising department and in terms of engagement with high calibre Boards of Trustees and key stakeholder groups. Extensive and proven experience in cultivating and stewarding High Net Worth Individuals will be a key requirement.

This will take drive, ambition and determination but the rewards will be great. A generous salary and the opportunity to add this incredible project to your fundraising portfolio make it one of the most exciting and alluring capital appeals to ever take place in Scotland.

If you’re up for the challenge and are a top class fundraiser, BTA would like to hear from you.
