Black Cultural Archives is the UK’s first heritage centre dedicated to preserving, collecting and celebrating Black history and heritage. Our collection spans several centuries and contains a wide variety of material, including personal papers, rare books, periodicals and press cuttings, photographs, and other artefacts, reflecting the history of the African Diaspora and the presence of Black people in Britain. In 2014 after a successful £7million fundraising campaign, we launched the first national Black heritage centre in the UK. The primary funder of the capital project was the Heritage Lottery Fund, and this funding was matched funded by London Borough of Lambeth, Greater London Authority, Biffa Award, Foyle Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, J Paul Getty Junior, Charles Hayward Foundation, The Linbury Trust, and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

We are looking for a new member to join our team as a Development Manager. The Development Manager will play a lead role in delivering the wider fundraising targets of the organisation. You will bring an expertise in securing funding from trusts and foundations and will carry responsibility for ensuring that the targets for trusts and foundations within the business plan are achieved. The post holder will provide effective database management and record keeping through reporting procedures, as a crucial member of the staff team. The successful candidate will work closely with the staff team and report to the Director. The role includes researching and scoping fundraising opportunities in line with the organisations’ plans and programmes and is responsible for producing fundraising reports and collaborating with other members of the teams, particularly for example when reporting back to funders and other stakeholders.
