Reports to                  Head of Development


The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is looking for a part-time (0.6FTE) Development Officer to support the Development Team’s fundraising for the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul. We are one of London’s most popular visitor attractions at the heart of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site welcoming 1.5m visitors annually.

This is a truly exciting time to join the organisation - we are embarking on our most ambitious transformation to become an extraordinary cultural destination. We are doing this by exemplifying our values of Bold | Embracing | Imaginative | Resilient. With a dynamic new Chief Executive and a highly engaged Board we are looking to attract a small number of passionate and talented people capable of driving our organisation to its aspiration. We are looking for people who want to deepen and strengthen their own already excellent skills, to join our talented and engaged team: in our recent staff and volunteer survey 97% of our team said they were proud to work at the Old Royal Naval College.

The Development Officer will report to the Head of Development and lead the fundraising activities for the historic Chapel of St Peter and St Paul. S/he will also be responsible for increasing engagement and reach for the Chapel through both internal and external communications. Her/his first fundraising priority will be to raise funds for a project to increase physical accessibility to the Chapel via the installation of a lift.

This is a new role dedicated to our historic Chapel, a Neoclassical masterpiece, one of the key components of our World Heritage and Scheduled Monument Site and one of Britain's finest eighteenth century interiors. The Chapel has significant potential to funders and a number of exciting new projects are planned for the coming years which is why a dedicated fundraiser is now being sought.
