Job Description

Prospectus is excited to be partnering with Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in the search for a permanent Head of Development. This is a critical role to strategically lead development for the whole organisation and there could not be a more compelling time to join.

Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade 1 listed country home of renowned British architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. It reopened to the public in 2019 following an award-winning £12m HLF and ACE-supported conservation project.  Today it stages an ambitious programme of contemporary exhibitions ranging from Anish Kapoor and Es Devlin to Rana Begum and Idris Khan, alongside a public programme of events, learning & outreach activities.

The Head of Development will lead the fundraising and development strategy for the Manor and its contemporary art gallery. Sitting on the Senior Management Team, you will play a crucial role in building on Pitzhanger’s past successes and existing fundraising relationships to create new opportunities. You will, as Head of Development, develop the income strategy that will include trusts and foundations, corporates, individuals, and broader public fundraising campaigns. The department also manages the Patrons’ and Members’ schemes.

The selected candidate will be inspired by the opportunity to work in a new, entrepreneurial fundraising environment where your input will not only make a real difference, it will define fundraising for the organisation for the future.  The Pitzhanger team is passionate about heritage and the arts and their potential to create a really positive impact within its diverse communities.  You will have excellent communication skills and experience across trusts and individual fundraising and be ready to act on new opportunities and funding plans as they emerge in the fast-moving arts and heritage space.  You will be motivated by the opportunity to support Pitzhanger’s mission to inspire its communities with art, architecture and design.

The Pitzhanger team are happy to appoint a talented Manager with extensive fundraising experience to transition up and into this leadership position. If that sounds like you, please get in touch!
