Job description

Are you an enthusiastic and self-motivated fundraiser and relationship manager with experience of securing high level donations?

For more than 200 years, the Royal Institution (Ri) has been encouraging people to think more deeply about science and its impact on our lives. Founded in 1799 through the wonderful generosity of 58 Patrons, the charity remains based to this day in its original, magnificent, Georgian home in central London. Thanks to the support of those early philanthropists, the Ri has inspired generations of scientists over the years whose discoveries have helped shape our modern world.

Philanthropy is just as important to the Ri today as it was two centuries ago. It costs a significant amount each year to care for our Grade I listed building and historic collections, as well as to offer an exciting programme of public talks, education and outreach activities for people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Coronavirus pandemic has severely impacted the Ri’s ability to carry out many of its activities so additional fundraising is even more important now than ever to further our recovery from the pandemic and to help us meet our ambitious vision. One of the ways we fundraise is through Major Giving, in particular, through our Patrons’ programme and Major Gifts.

Reporting to the Director of Fundraising, Marketing, Communications & Digital this role is based in Mayfair, with some remote working.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and well-organised, Major Donor & Patron Manager to join our small development team cultivating patrons who donate large gifts. You will be responsible for the growth & delivery of the Ri’s major donor, patron and individual giving streams, and will bring a track record in income generation from individuals, preferably in a charity or not for profit setting. An experienced relationship manager, you will create proposals for potential donors, hosting, along with our leadership team, a varied programme of cultivation and stewardship events for our patrons.

This is a revenue generating role with income targets and budget management for the income streams mentioned. As a successful applicant you will have the ability to lead on marketing initiatives across a range of channels with a view to inspiring support and revenue growth in order to help the Ri achieve its social impact and financial targets.

This is an exciting and varied fundraising role, strategising income generation, as well as hands-on project delivery, speechwriting and reporting on campaign analytics.

Closing date for applications: midnight on Sunday 5 June 2022.
