Philanthropy Executive

Philanthropy Executive
Employer: English Heritage
Salary: £35,853 - £38,760
Location: London

We are seeking a tenacious and enthusiastic Philanthropy Executive to join our small but growing fundraising team. You'll be responsible for securing gifts at the £10,000 - £250,000 level in support of English Heritage's strategic objectives, including conservation, education and capital projects.

We are a new charity with big targets and some of the world's best-known heritage sites in our care, so we can offer you a varied and rewarding role and the opportunity to really grow your career as a major gifts fundraiser. You'll be based in our London office, with regular travel to some of the country's most spectacular and iconic historic sites.

To be successful in this role you must have outstanding relationship management skills and experience of making face to face asks at the four or five figure level. You are tenacious, target-driven, and possess the credibility and confidence to influence at the highest level. It is likely that you already have experience of managing a small fundraising project, coordinating activity from others to achieve a shared goal. You also enjoy working closely with a diverse group of colleagues within a complex and multi-site organisation. It goes without saying that a passion for history and heritage is an absolute must!

English Heritage tells the stories of England through the 420 sites and 500,000 paintings and artefacts in our care. From Stonehenge to Hadrian's Wall, Dover Castle to Iron Bridge, our sites span some six millennia and are visited by more than 10 million people each year.

We offer a competitive benefits package including a generous pension, 25 days leave a year and free entry to all English Heritage properties for you, another adult and up to 6 children (under the age of 19).
