Job description

The Postal Museum is one of the newest and most exciting museum in London. We opened in 2017 and have already established the museum as a must-visit destination with award-winning experiences and marketing campaigns. Alongside hands-on exhibitions exploring over 500 years of British social and communications history, visitors can experience a subterranean ride through the tunnels of the old Post Office Underground Railway – Mail Rail. The museum welcomes over 160,000 visitors and our online content reaches almost a million users a year. We deliver award-winning learning, access and outreach programmes and provide unique experiences including popular Tunnel Walks under the streets of London. The museum also operates a children’s playspace – Sorted – popular with young families and schools. Alongside all this we offer one of the most unique venues in London for corporate hire and filming locations.                                                                                    



The successful candidate will be an experienced fundraiser who can support the museum primarily to identify and grow individual giving opportunities and nurture existing relationships, including with our Patrons, Sponsor a Sleeper supporters and key HNWI. This will include prospect research and the development of a new phase of the successful Sponsor a Sleeper campaign.


Responsibility for Trusts and Foundations is devolved across teams and the post will support colleagues, particularly in the Learning and Access teams, with research and best practice to secure grants of various sizes from trusts and foundations for our education, community and public programmes and report on their success to funders.


The post reports to the Head of Marketing and Communications and, as the sole fundraising specialist at the museum, will act as an adviser to the Executive Team on strategic decisions. 


As an employee of The Postal Museum, you will enjoy a wide range of benefits, including – but not limited to – a generous pension scheme, flexible working, cycle to work scheme and interest free season ticket loan.


The Postal Museum is absolutely committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We value diversity and lived experience, and acknowledge the underrepresentation of people from certain backgrounds, both within our organisation and across the sector. We welcome applications from underrepresented groups, whether these be of ethnicity, gender, identity, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation or other
