Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 1st July 2022

The Royal College of Art is the UK’s only entirely postgraduate institution of art and design, dedicated to teaching, research and knowledge exchange with industry. The RCA has been ranked the number one university-level institution for art & design, internationally, for the eighth consecutive year according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2021.  

We are seeking to appoint a proactive Major Gifts Manager who will work closely with the Head of Major Gifts to develop and deliver fundraising initiatives to secure philanthropic support primarily from charitable trusts and foundations and individuals, both in the UK and internationally.  The postholder will manage a distinct portfolio of prospects and donors, and have a range of solicitation targets supporting the College’s agreed philanthropic goals.  The Major Gifts Manager will shape fundraising propositions, as well as dedicating time to stewarding and cultivating current and prospective donors to ensure renewal and to develop new philanthropic income streams.

As Major Gifts Manager, you will make a genuine and direct impact by working closely with academic colleagues to craft compelling and exciting fundraising proposals to actively support the RCA and its students.

The successful candidate will have experience of building relationships with donors and prospects to successfully raise philanthropic gifts and meet agreed targets, an entrepreneurial flair with a high level of self-motivation and initiative, and a demonstrable desire to succeed, achieve results and make a difference.  They will also have excellent organisational and prioritisation skills with the ability to manage a portfolio of donors and prospects, while maintaining thorough attention to detail, whilst working to tight deadlines.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the RCA and its successful Development team as the new landmark campus in Battersea, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, opens.  Having recently over-achieved and closed the capital element of the GenerationRCA fundraising campaign, the small but high-performing Development and Alumni Relations team is a fun, fast paced and collegiate team to be a part of.
