Philanthropy Manager

Philanthropy Manager
Employer: English Heritage
Salary: £42,458 - £45,900
Location: London

English Heritage is seeking an experienced and ambitious major gifts fundraiser with a passion for heritage and history. The Philanthropy Manager is a senior role within the Private Philanthropy team, securing five and six figure gifts in support of strategic projects encompassing conservation, interpretation and public engagement.

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 in a friendly and collaborative Development department. You'll be based in our London office, with regular travel to some of the country's most spectacular and iconic historic sites. While most of your work will be UK-based, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to the charity's fundraising activity in North America.

To be successful in this role you will have a demonstrable, significant track record in major gift fundraising and outstanding relationship management skills. You will be tenacious and proactive and possess the credibility and confidence to influence at the highest level. This role has line management responsibility and you will have experience managing or mentoring more junior colleagues to help them achieve their objectives. You will also be motivated by the potential offered by a relatively new major gifts programme, and the opportunity to break new ground for the charity.

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).
