The Courtauld Institute of Art

Principal Gifts Officer

The Courtauld Institute of Art is the world’s leading centre for the study of the history and conservation of art and architecture and is home to one of Britain’s best-loved collections, housed in its Gallery at Somerset House. We seek a highly motivated, innovative individual with outstanding fundraising skills to join our highly successful development team in the role of Principal Gifts Officer.

You will build highly strategic relationships with a diverse range of partners.

The Courtauld is in the early stage 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 adapt The Courtauld’s historic buildings into an accessible estate for contemporary audiences, improving facilities for academics, conservators and curators and enhancing the quality of the experience for students, visitors and staff.

We are recruiting an ambitious and proven major gifts fundraiser to maintain momentum and drive the project forward. You will build highly strategic relationships with a diverse range of partners in order to raise income at the six and seven figure level. You will bring strategic insight to the capital project as it develops and you will focus on building sustainable relationships to support The Courtauld into the future.

The successful candidate will have significant fundraising experience and a proven track record of securing income at the six and seven figure level from individual philanthropists, family trusts, foundations and corporate supporters. You will excel in working within a results-oriented environment and bring demonstrated experience in establishing credibility. We are pleased to accept applications from individuals who possess transferable skills and experience drawn from other sectors.
