A rare and exciting opportunity to join Royal Museums Greenwich (RMG), an award-winning national museum with international reach and local responsibilities, which sits at the heart of the ‘Maritime Greenwich’ UNESCO World Heritage Site, the umbrella brand for five historic sites: Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, The Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre, the Queen’s House, and Royal Observatory Greenwich.
The Royal Observatory Greenwich is embarking on a major capital campaign, entitled First Light; a once in a generation transformational project to unlock the potential of this world-famous historic site. First Light will establish the Royal Observatory as the leading centre for the public understanding of astronomy – a place of awe and wonder. RMG will bring together the network of historic buildings into an unforgettable visitor experience, with bold new gallery spaces and inspiring programmes to bring the visitor into contact with space exploration today. It will be a new dawn for visitors and the Observatory – fusing the concepts of space and time and unlocking the mysteries of the universe for 1.5 million visitors a year.
With this upcoming major capital project, the RMG Development Team is looking to expand and are seeking a Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser to join their growing team. The Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser: First Light will be dedicated to supporting this exciting major capital project. The new postholder will join an established team, as well as with new team members across other fundraising disciplines and will have the opportunity to develop and cultivate new opportunities as well as working with existing corporate partners and members.
