Overview: The Holburne Museum in Bath is recruiting a Fundraiser to join its small and ambitious team. We are looking for a highly motivated individual with demonstrable experience in fundraising and development in the arts sector.
Working predominantly on Trusts & Foundations, this role will work to secure grants and gifts to support the Museum’s core programmes including exhibitions, learning and capital projects to contribute towards the Holburne’s annual fundraising target, whilst also helping to support additional projects and activities.
The post-holder will join at an exciting and important time in the Museum’s history with the recent appointment of a new Contemporary Curator to broaden the Museum’s artistic programme, the recent move of the Museum’s Friends scheme ‘in-house’, and the pledge of new match-funding towards the Museum’s endowment.

We deliver 6 exhibitions a year which attract national recognition, and these exhibitions aim to provide fresh perspectives on our own collection whilst developing new audiences.
