The New Room (also known as John Wesley's Chapel) is an award-winning museum and heritage attraction in the centre of Bristol. We are seeking to appoint a part-time fundraising officer to deliver and develop its fundraising strategy for the next 12 months with possibility of extension. When government coronavirus regulations allow museums to reopen, the post holder will be asked to work at least one day per week at the New Room in Bristol.
As the oldest Methodist building in the world, the New Room shares stories of 18th century Bristol, the Methodist movement, social justice, equality, health and wellbeing with over 50,000 visitors annually. The site consists of the chapel, museum, library & archive, meeting rooms, Fairtrade café and gift shop.
The New Room receives some funding from the Methodist Church but is responsible for securing most of its income from a variety of different sources in order to maintain its extensive programme of events, activities, and educational provision.
We are looking for an experienced fundraiser to be responsible for owning and implementing the New Room’s fundraising strategy in order to increase income and help make the New Room more sustainable. This post is focused on securing funding that will allow the New Rooms to continue its work with its existing staff team and volunteer base. The role holder will oversee all areas of fundraising with a constant focus on return on investment and with a primary focus on trust and grants fundraising.
