Director of Development

Winchester, Hampshire (Hybrid)
£60,000 - £65,000 per year
Job description

Location: Winchester / Hybrid (minimum of 1-2 in the office per week)

We are working in partnership with Hampshire Cultural Trust (HCT), who were established as an independent charity in 2014. HCT operate visitor attractions, galleries, museums, and arts centres across Hampshire, and are responsible for conserving and maintaining one of the largest and most significant regional collections of historical artefacts in the country. Their charitable purpose is to change lives through culture, both for Hampshire’s residents and for visitors to the county, placing particular emphasis on reaching individuals, groups and communities who are vulnerable or disadvantaged, breaking down barriers of access to arts and culture.

HCT are now seeking to appoint a Director of Development to lead and deliver a trust-wide strategic approach to fundraising, in alignment with organisational needs and priorities. The director will develop and lead a high performing team and will be responsible for growing income from a range of sources, including trusts and grants, individual giving and developing a philanthropy programme based on a portfolio of designated funds to support strategic projects and ongoing revenue funding. This role sits on the SLT, with shared responsibility for setting and realising the organisation’s goals, strategic priorities, and business plan.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • Significant experience in fundraising, including developing and implementing successful development strategies and securing income from a wide range of sources.
  • Significant experience in securing philanthropic gifts at the five and six figure level.
  • Strong track record in developing successful proposals and securing grants from trusts and statutory funders, with an ability to convey information in a concise, relevant, and compelling way.
  • Experience of managing and developing high-performing teams, and senior stakeholder relationships, including donors and funders.
  • Good working knowledge of charity finance, budgeting, and reporting.

We are seeking a strategic and operational fundraiser, with an entrepreneurial and collaborative mindset, and the ability to persuade and influence, and lead and develop.
