never been a more exciting time to join the Natural History Museum. With the
launch of the spectacular new Hintze Hall in July 2017, and its ground-breaking
scientific research in the national and international media, the Museum has
embarked on a decade of transformation. Innovative public engagement and science projects are
underway and showcase their aim to be a natural history museum of the future.
In order to
deliver this ambitious vision, we are seeking an experienced Head of
Philanthropy who will build on the successes of recent years, and lead and
inspire the Major Gifts team to deliver a significant increase in philanthropic
engagement from individuals and Trusts & Foundations at all levels.
With a proven
track record in raising major gifts at the 6-figure level and above, you are a
strategic thinker and operator, and a proactive individual with the ability to
lead and inspire a high-performing team.
Your sophisticated communication style will underpin your ability to
confidently convey the work of the Natural History Museum, and your talent in
building long-lasting beneficial relationships will be instrumental to your
success in this post.
If you have experience
motivating, developing and getting the best out of a major giving fundraising
team at a time of unprecedented ambition and demand, we would love to hear from
you. You will join a high performing Development and Communications directorate
and play a key role in its future growth and success.
The Museum is a world-class visitor attraction and leading science research centre.
We use our unique collections and unrivalled expertise to tackle the biggest challenges facing the world today.
We care for more than 80 million specimens spanning billions of years and welcome more than five million visitors annually.
