We're Seeking a Fundraiser

Fundraising & Development Manager

Would you enjoy working closely with colleagues in a busy independent, accredited museum to achieve ambitious goals to further develop a thriving museum? Do you have experience of successful fundraising in a not-for-profit organisation including achieving and managing support and grants from individuals, trusts and businesses?

The Centre for Computing History is looking for a highly organised, passionate, and motivated Fundraising & Development Manager to drive forward our fundraising activities and growth.

Working within a small team at the museum, the role of Fundraising & Development Manager offers an opportunity to have a significant impact on the work we do and on our development into the future.

The successful applicant will have a demonstrable interest and previous experience in fundraising within the charity sector. Previous work with museums and/or science-based learning organisations would be an advantage as would existing local connections. We are seeking an adaptable communicator who can advocate for the museum; you must have strong interpersonal skills that can be tailored to suit a variety of supporters, funders and stakeholders and a collaborative approach so you can work closely with colleagues.

We believe that diversity strengthens us and enhances what we do. We are committed to helping to make the museums sector a more diverse and equal place and strive to be open and welcoming as a museum and workplace. To this end we are actively seeking to diversify our staff and would welcome applications from all sections of society and from anyone who can bring different perspectives and new knowledge to our team.

Hours: 21 hours per week, ideally worked Weds-Fri but flexibility can be offered for the right candidate, as can some remote working.
Salary: £32,000-£38,000pa (pro rata).

To apply for the vacancy please email your CV and in the covering email outline your reasons for applying and the skills and passion you will bring to the post. Applications and any queries regarding this position should be directed to admin@computinghistory.org.uk. 

Please bear in mind that due to limited staffing, we may not be able to reply to unsuccessful applicants. If you do not hear from us within 3 weeks of the closing date, you should assume that you have not been shortlisted for interview.

The closing date for applications is Friday 5th January 2024.
