Campaign Manager

Excellent role for an experienced fundraiser with an interest in driving impactful campaigns, to join the team of this award-winning museum. 

The Museum of London is a charitable institution that tells the story of the world’s greatest city and its people. With sites in central London, Docklands and Hackney, they aim to inform the public about how the Capital has transformed over the years from its first settlers to modern times.

They’re launching their biggest ever fundraising campaign for a New Museum at an extraordinary site in West Smithfield, and the fundraising team will be at the very heart of making this project happen. £180m has already been secured, and they will raise £70m in philanthropic fundraising to make the project a success.

They’re looking for a Campaign Manager to help shape and implement a development operations strategy to support the successful delivery of the museum’s campaign. You’ll work with the Assistant Director (Campaign Delivery) to shape and implement a development operations strategy to support the successful delivery of the museum’s £70m campaign. The placeholder will also be required to oversee the effective office management and administration of the Development and Communications team.
