Chelsea Physic Garden

Fundraising Manager

We are looking for a talented Fundraising Manager to join our small team, reporting to the newly appointed Development Director.

£35,000 – £38,000 pro rata
Permanent / Part-time / 21 hours per week

This is an excellent time to join Chelsea Physic Garden. In 2023 the charity celebrates 350 years as a Botanic Garden dedicated to teaching and discovery and it embarks on a major £12 million transformation project that will safeguard the Garden’s future. You will play a pivotal role in helping to support the fundraising campaign from the outset. This is a great opportunity for someone with previous fundraising experience and a demonstrable track record (trusts and foundations or individual giving) to utilise their skills and knowledge and help create a step-change in the Garden’s fundraising.

Your fundraising expertise will be put to use to create the systems and culture required to shape a campaign at this level, in addition to leading on the annual revenue funding for Garden projects (£300k).

You will have comparable experience of working in a fundraising role with a demonstrable track record. You will be highly adept at communicating with people at all levels. An ability to self-manage and react to changing priorities is important. A willingness to create workable and efficient systems and knowledge of fundraising databases is a prerequisite. You will use your writing talents to create a suite of compelling collateral and proposals. With a sound understanding of MS office applications, a confident presentation style and excellent organisational skills you will play a key part in securing the Garden’s future.

This is a rewarding role in a small friendly team at Chelsea Physic Garden. Benefits include 25 days paid holiday pro rata, pension scheme and staff benefit scheme.
