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.

Starter Packs Glasgow is a charity based in Govan working to alleviate poverty across the city. By providing packs of essential household goods to those moving into a new tenancy, often after homelessness, we can make houses more homely, and help people to sustain their tenancy. We do this through the help and support of our local community, much-needed donations and the many staff and volunteers we’re lucky to work with.
Our van team are often ‘the face of Starter Packs Glasgow’. It is this team who are responsible for delivering our packs to our customers; their experience of us as a charity depends on their experience of our van team members. Equally, the van team are responsible for the collection and delivery of donations and sold goods to our supporters and shop customers; their impression of our van team can influence whether they choose to support us again in future. Our customers let us into their homes, and all deserve to receive a professional service and to be treated with dignity and respect. It is vital that our Van Crew Supervisor appreciates the importance this can play in the ongoing success of the charity. We are, therefore, looking for someone who can inspire the team, not only to meet high standards in vehicle maintenance and health and safety but also to deliver exemplary customer service.

The postholder will work with wider GCDT colleagues to develop packages of support for tenants. They will contribute to the development of a new marketing strategy for GCDT’s commercial property and the production of new marketing materials for our workspaces.

Foundation Scotland was established to help people and organisations give to good causes effectively and inexpensively. Since 1996 the Foundation has been delivering innovative funding programmes distributing over £70 million to charities and community groups. Our knowledge of the sector allows us to find lesser known charities ensuring our awards create lasting change.
We wish to recruit a number of freelance assessors with varied experience and knowledge of the voluntary sector to assess grant applications from organisations delivering community projects in Scotland. The purpose of these assessor roles is to make objective comprehensive assessments regarding applications for funding from a range of funds managed by the Foundation Scotland. The position is a part time and freelance commitment. You will work from home and will be paid a fee, dependent upon complexity. You’ll need to be available for this work on a flexible and occasionally out of hours’ basis across the year. You will be expected to liaise with applicants over the telephone and to collate and analyse information gathered throughout the assessment process before writing up a thorough and objective assessment report.
Assessors will be recruited because of their analytical skills, clarity of reporting, and background knowledge of voluntary organisations and social issues. It is an important feature of this process that assessors can assess the structure of the applicant organisation and the proposals for their projects while retaining independence from decision making. Experience of assessing is an advantage, but we are interested in transferable skills (analytical, report writing, communication skills, for example) and experience in the social sector (voluntary, community and charity sector). Access to a phone, PC, broadband connection and email are essential.
