This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful fundraising team at the National Gallery.

As Patrons Officer, you will play a key role in the Patrons team, which is responsible for the George Beaumont Group and George Beaumont Circle: the National Gallery`s two groups of Patrons. As Patrons Officer, you will help to develop and maintain relationships with Patrons, working closely with the Patrons Manager and Patrons Assistant.

The role will include acting as a point of contact with Patrons both in the office and at events, assisting with stewardship of existing Patrons, and also with cultivation of potential new Patrons and Donors. You will be a day to day contact for Patrons, and will be required to handle enquiries and draft correspondence. In addition, this role will arrange small-scale and bespoke events and visits for Patrons, and will play an important role in organising two annual overseas study trips each year for Patrons. You will work closely with the wider Trusts and Individual Giving Team, supporting the team in delivering its objectives.

You will need experience of working in a fundraising environment, or have experience in managing client or donor relationships. Experience of assisting with stewardship and cultivation of donors or clients, and experience of dealing with high level and senior figures is essential. Excellent interpersonal, communication and organisational skills will be essential together with a high level of computer literacy and knowledge of a database system.
