This is an exciting opportunity to join the team who recently delivered a major refurbishment of this 1582 Tudor house, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Camden Council, numerous trusts and over 300 individuals.
Alongside the ‘transformation’ of the building we ran a creative 3 year education and outreach programme (‘Opening the Doors’) giving new opportunities to young people who live just 5 minutes away from the house on some of the most deprived estates in the country ( a significant contrast to the Highgate homes across the road). This programme has completed its first cycle and we have some great case studies, tangible outcomes, thorough evaluation and a real understanding of the need.
We believe that the relationships we have built over the past 5 years, the track record we have built with our outreach programme and our mission to be at the centre of a diverse range of communities put us in a strong position to build strategically our trust fundraising and individual giving.
We are therefore looking for a highly motivated, target driven individual to take our fundraising to the next level and integrate it as a key part of our business plan. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your arts and heritage fundraising career to the next level. You will enjoy working with a diverse range of people in a constantly changing environment, and thrive on the challenges offered by a small, buzzy arts and heritage venue with a highly varied offering.
The Fundraising Executive will have the opportunity to:
- develop a new individual giving programme building on the significant goodwill there is towards us in the community and amongst our users. ‘Lauderdale becomes part of your DNA’ quote from recent survey
- develop a new trusts and foundations programme building on the success of the capital appeal and Opening the Doors
- develop the fundraising systems and approaches needed to ensure superlative donor and funder care
