Sulgrave Manor Trust is looking for a part-time Development Officer to join our small and enthusiastic team.
Located near Banbury in rolling countryside, Sulgrave Manor is a unique historic visitor attraction. Built during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Sulgrave Manor was the home of the Washington family, ancestors of George Washington, first President of the United States. In 2021, as the house celebrates its 100th anniversary of first welcoming visitors, the Sulgrave Manor Trust is embarking on a fundraising campaign to support its educational mission: of furthering the public understanding of British and American history, and the ties which connect the two nations.
Sulgrave has long been indebted to the generous and ongoing support of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA) and its supporter organization in the US, the Friends of Sulgrave Manor. Alongside stewarding these key supporter relationships, the Trust seeks to engage new donors in the UK and overseas, through annual donations, capital gifts, and legacy giving.
The Development Officer is a new position demonstrating Sulgrave Manor’s commitment to securing its financial future. The postholder will require excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills to develop successful appeals for our endowment campaign and associated projects.
The role will suit someone who enjoys a varied workload and thrives in a small team. The successful applicant will have experience of fundraising, ideally in the heritage and/or education sector.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
