Head of Development

£32,234 - £36,922 (Grade 7/8)
Permanent (following probationary period)

Are you an excellent communicator, relationship builder and networker looking for an exciting opportunity to join the Senior Leadership Team at People’s History Museum (PHM)?  Do you have a track record of success in fundraising, enterprise or income generation, and a passion for communication and marketing?

PHM is looking for a Head of Development to take on strategic responsibility for a portfolio of development activities including commercial income (retail, cafe, venue hire), enterprise, fundraising, communications and marketing.  You will work with the rest of the museum’s Senior Leadership Team, the Board of Trustees, staff, volunteers, stakeholders and partners to build on PHM’s existing success and help deliver an ambitious Business Plan for 2021-2022 and beyond.

You will demonstrate strong leadership skills, with income generation, fundraising and communications experience.  You will be confident in securing income and support from diverse sources for the museum to enable the delivery of Business Plan aims and priorities.  You will be passionate about clear and effective communications, and keen to help promote the museum to audiences, communities, stakeholders and others through a wide range of marketing, social media and digital channels.

You will believe passionately in everything that PHM, the national museum of democracy stands for and the award winning work we deliver in collaboration with our communities, partners and audiences – helping achieve the museum’s vision to challenge inequality and apathy and inspire positive action through the inspiring stories of activism told at PHM.
