Corporate Fundraiser vacancy
This is a pivotal time to join an expanding fundraising team developing and implementing a new and sustainable fundraising strategy. This role will initially be focussed on the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum through funding from Arts Council England, once this funding ends in March 2018 the role will then be expanded to look at opportunities for corporate partnership funding across all our venues and activities.
The Corporate Fundraiser will be responsible for creating and implementing a refreshed approach to fundraising within initially the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum and then across the whole Trust (including The Prince of Wales Stadium, Town Hall, Leisure at and Pittville Pump Rooms). This role would be building on the previous success of large capital and revenue bids and would support the Fundraising Manager in taking The Trust to a strong sustainable financial position with a diverse fundraising strategy.
You will have strong corporate fundraising experience of three or more years, including devising and implementing fundraising strategies and initiatives from start to finish. Strong team work and a fresh positive approach to fundraising is a necessity with experience in other areas of fundraising advantageous. Experience within the cultural, heritage or sport sector as a fundraising would be desirable but not essential.
About the organisation:
The Cheltenham Trust was formed in 2014 taking over the management of five iconic local venues, The Town Hall, Pittville Pump Rooms, The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, Leisure at and The Prince of Wales Stadium. With over a million footfall each year the reach of the Trust is not limited to just our venues but also through community engagement projects taking place at the heart of local communities such as Street Games and through key pop up events like National Play Day or our mini exhibitions in the 10 phone boxes along the Prom. To be able to continue and enrich the lives of residents and visitors to the town we rely on the generosity of the general public, local business and funders.
Having undergone a significant refurbishment in 2013, The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum recently secured a major Arts Council Resilience Fund to develop its capacity and identity. This role forms part of a bread eighteen month programme to increase engagement, attract new audiences to the museum and support The Wilson as a vibrant sustainable business.
