Fundraising Officer

£25,878 (& pension contribution to the Greater Manchester Pension Fund)
Contract Two Years

This is an exciting opportunity to join People’s History Museum’s (PHM) multi-disciplinary Development Team, which comprises fundraising, commercial and marketing specialisms.

This brand new role will lead on the growth of PHM’s individual and corporate giving schemes, driving donations across all channels, growing our established Radical supporter brands, and developing new packages to attract vital income to further the museum’s work.

We are looking for a target driven, creative thinker to expand our supporter and sponsor networks as we build towards some major changes.  The role will involve lead generation, working particularly closely with colleagues across the organisation to identify opportunities linked to the museum’s collection and audience engagement.

The role will require strong relationship management skills, providing stewardship for supporter and sponsor relationships to sustain and grow connections.  We anticipate the role will be highly varied, encompassing delivering events, developing proposals, and analysing data.

This role will involve a lot of external advocacy on behalf of the museum, making it well suited for someone who thrives in networking and relationship building environments.

PHM prides itself on being a welcoming and inclusive organisation, profoundly committed to advancing equality and diversity in the broadest sense.  We highly value the benefits that diverse perspectives bring to PHM’s mission.

We recognise the museum currently underrepresents people of colour, disabled people, LGBTQI+ people and those with intersecting identities in our workforce; PHM is actively working to address this and encourages applications from these backgrounds.  While the successful candidate will be selected purely on merit, in the event of a tie between two candidates with equal experience, we may select a candidate who helps us better represent the communities the museum serves.
