Place of Work: Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

The Old Royal Naval College is looking for a driven and self-motivated Prospect Research Manager to join a small but high performing development team at a crucial time in an on-going capital campaign for the Painted Hall.

The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is Sir Christopher Wren’s riverside masterpiece and one of London’s most   popular cultural attractions with 1.7million visitors a year. It is currently undertaking it's most ambitious conservation project to date, to clean and conserve over 40,000 square feet of the magnificent Grade I listed Painted Hall.

We have secured two thirds of the funding required to complete the project, raising major gifts from leading philanthropists on both sides of the Atlantic. We are now looking for an exceptional prospect researcher to join our team and help us close this campaign.

This is a demanding and very hands-on role; primarily focussing on leading, reviewing and managing an existing prospect research strategy for the Painted Hall campaign and identifying key new leads for fundraisers.

The ideal candidate will be an analytical and methodical, and possess strong communication and presentation skills.   They will be self-motivated and able to 'hit the ground running', proactively identifying new areas of activity and working independently to oversee projects. They will also be able to analyse information rapidly, identifying key  points and drawing conclusions, as well as possessing a sharp attention to detail and strong problem solving skills.
