Top job! Capital Appeal Director (Paisley Museum Re-Imagined)

  • Full time
  • £68,985 – £75,409
  • Paisley
  • Closing 23rd October 2018

BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working exclusively with Renfrewshire Council to recruit a Capital Appeal Director for the Paisley Museum Appeal.

“A history of royalty and radicalism… a town built by thread, made world-famous by a pattern… home to artists and artisans, musicians and mill girls. Paisley has it all.”

To galvanise its many assets and history, the historic Scottish town is set to undergo a massive £100m transformation - the legacy of Paisley’s UK City of Culture 2021 bid. At the heart of this will be the £42m redevelopment of Paisley Museum.

With the appointment of award-winning architects AL_A, Renfrewshire Council are set to place the Museum, and the town, on the world stage. And quite rightly so. The Museum site houses a wealth of treasures including the Coats Observatory, the world’s largest collection of Paisley Shawls, and collections which have international significance in telling our industrial, social and natural history.

The Museum is much loved by the people of Paisley and Renfrewshire. This will be reflected in its transformation as it will centre around stories of the local area and its people, ensuring that the re-imagined museum is representative of Paisley’s communities, giving voice to the ‘Paisley buddies’.

This incredible project has already raised much of the funds required, however, there is still work to be done. Renfrewshire Council is looking for a Capital Appeal Director to raise the remaining £5m and to elevate the profile of the Paisley Museum Appeal, engaging and enthusing an international audience.

Working across multiple stakeholder groups, with the ability to execute political awareness and adapt to meet changing political contexts, you will be a tenacious, diplomatic individual with a wealth of senior fundraising experience. You will have delivered a number of high-profile capital appeals and be looking for your next challenge. Overseeing a small Capital Appeal team, you will write the £5m fundraising strategy and lead on cultivating and stewarding major gift prospects and supporters.

If you are looking to add a prestigious, high-profile capital appeal to your portfolio of work and have a passion for re-imagining our past to transform our future, please contact us today.
