Development Manager - Patrons & Individual Giving, Come join The Team !!!!!

This is an exciting period of renewal for NGS, as we move forward with our engaging strategic vision that puts our audience at the heart of what we do. We’re making it our mission to broaden our impact, matching our rich collections, expertise and creativity to the needs and wants of our visitors. We’re finding new ways to connect with more people, and creating an innovative, inclusive organisation that can meet the challenges of our ever-evolving world.

At NGS we are committed to looking at how we operate as well as how we engage with our visitors and communities. We want to play our part in tackling the Climate Emergency. We will ensure Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is embedded across our organisation, ensuring everyone feels a sense of belonging and can be themselves.  

This is a new role responsible for generating income through the development and delivery of both the Patrons programme and the major gift and individual giving programme, working closely with the Head of Development and Development Manager (Trusts, Foundations and Legacies) on the NGS fundraising strategy. 

The NGS Patrons are a group of high net worth individuals who collectively and individually support exhibitions, acquisitions, research and learning activities. We have ambitions to develop and expand this important group and the successful applicant will play a key part in this effort. 

The National Galleries of Scotland have an exciting programme of major capital projects in progress and the successful applicant will be heavily involved in the fundraising to support these campaigns. 

NGS have a lively and diverse programme of exhibitions and activities across all our sites in Edinburgh as well as a range of national and international partnerships. The Development Manager will help drive the funding for these programmes, particularly looking for new areas of support.
