The Royal Air Force Museum is a national museum, a Government non-departmental public body (NDPB) and a registered charity, with two sister sites at London and Cosford. RAF Museum Enterprises Ltd is the trading arm of the RAF Museum with all profits gift-aided to the Museum to support its charitable activities. Our purpose is to share the RAF story, past, present and future - using the stories of its people and our collections in order to engage, inform and inspire everyone. Our overall vision is to inspire everyone with the RAF story – the people who shape it and its place in our lives.

Having just completed a multimillion pound redevelopment project on site, there has never been a better time to join our award-winning museum.

Experience in developing and delivering fundraising strategies is an essential requirement for this post, combined with demonstrable experience of securing five-six figure gifts through corporates, Trusts and Foundations and/or High Net Worth Individuals.

The post will be based in Colindale, NW London. Travel between the Museum’s sites and abroad will be required.
