Development Manager – Major Gifts

The National Gallery is looking for an exceptional Development Manager to join a target driven and high performing Development team on a full-time permanent basis.

The National Gallery, founded in 1824, houses a uniquely important collection of some 2400 pictures of European art spanning seven centuries. At its heart is the commitment to engage the widest possible audience with the collection.

The role sits within the Development team and will initiate and develop high value, long-lasting relationships with individual Major Donors, Philanthropists and Trusts and Foundations. Through managing a portfolio of prospects and donors, they will secure five- and six-figure donations in support of all areas of the National Gallery’s work, from Exhibitions to Learning and other unique programmes, as well as contributing to fundraising for the NG200 Bicentenary Campaign and its legacy.

Joining us, you should have:

  • A demonstrable track record in securing Major Gifts of five-and-six figures from individual or Trust and Foundation donors, and successfully stewarding these relationships
  • The ability to create and convey (in person and in writing) a compelling case for support, tailored to meet Major Donors’ interests. This includes writing and presenting proposals and applications, and providing accompanying financial information
  • Ability to design and implement successful creative cultivation and stewardship plans and programmes for Major Donors
