Director of Development

Location. West London

Salary. £70,000 – 75,000 with excellent benefits

Closing Date. Monday 2nd August

Latymer Upper School is a school like no other.  A vibrant co-educational day school which achieves extremely high standards, Latymer aims to develop young people with the necessary dispositions and skills to be a lifelong learner, a global citizen and successful in adult life.

The Latymer Foundation was established in 1624 and it runs Latymer Upper School and Latymer Prep in Hammersmith. Through the fundraising, alumni and community engagement activities driven by the Latymer Foundation Office, the Upper School is able to provide significant financial support for talented students to access a world-class education, thus being a true engine for social mobility. 

The Latymer Foundation publicly launched its Inspiring Minds campaign in 2017, with the aim to raise £40 million by 2024, which will help to fund bursaries for as many as one in four Upper School pupils.  With £34 million having been raised so far, an exceptional opportunity has arisen to drive the Foundation Office’s activity towards the successful conclusion of the campaign and to design a roadmap for future growth and engagement.

Reporting to the Executive Director of the Foundation, the new Director of Development will be a first-class relationship builder and manager, motivated by the School’s ethos for excellence.  As an outstanding leader with a proven track record of developing and implementing income generation strategies, confidence in your own ability to operate at this strategic level will be underpinned by your demonstrable experience of negotiating and securing high level relationships for the organisations you’ve represented.  Ideally, this will have been gained in a philanthropic fundraising environment, however the School is open to exploring transferrable skills developed in the commercial sector. 

Key to your success in this role is the inspirational, inclusive and collaborative leadership approach you will bring , your experience of motivating high-performing teams, and your innovative and flexible approach to achieving outstanding results. Your credibility, pragmatism and ability to show good judgement, will inspire those around you and enable you to take the team and Foundation’s activity to the next level.  If you believe you have the skills, aptitude and commitment to lead the Latymer Foundation’s team drive and ambition, and are committed to the School’s values and aims, we would like to hear from you.




The Latymer Foundation was established in 1624 ‘to clothe and educate eight poore boyes’ in Hammersmith. It remains true to the vision of its founder Edward Latymer to this day, offering a first class education to academically able students from all walks of life.
