The Courtauld Institute of Art

Director of Development

The Courtauld Institute of Art is the world’s leading centre for the study of the history and conservation of art and architecture. Through its alumni, The Courtauld generates an evolving community of specialists who shape the international art world. The Courtauld also houses one of Britain’s best-loved collections within its Gallery at Somerset House.

The Courtauld is presently in the midst of Courtauld Connects, a major £multi-million transformation project to significantly improve teaching and research facilities, enhance the Gallery and widen reach – locally, nationally and internationally. The project will transform The Courtauld’s historic buildings into an accessible estate appropriate for contemporary audiences, improving facilities for academics and curators and greatly enhancing the quality of the experience for visitors, students and staff.

At this highly exciting time of great change and momentum for The Courtauld, we are now looking for a new Director of Development. Philanthropy will play an absolutely critical part in helping us to achieve our ambitions, and the Director will be responsible for all elements of fundraising across The Courtauld, working with the Director, the Chair and the Board of Trustees, alumni, patrons and other supporters. This is a fantastic, career-defining opportunity to play a significant contribution to the ongoing and future success of a world-renowned higher education and cultural institution. Candidates will have a proven track record of building effective, long-term, high-value philanthropic relationships together with evident fundraising and capital campaign experience.
