Full Description

“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 is the £42m redevelopment of Paisley Museum.

With the appointment of award-winning architects AL_A, Renfrewshire Council is 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.

This incredible project has already raised much of the funds required, however, there is still work to be done. With the recruitment of the Capital Appeal Director in its final stages, Renfrewshire Council is now looking for a Fundraising Manager to support the efforts to raise £5m.

The Fundraising Manager will report to and work closely with the Capital Appeal Director to develop and deliver the fundraising strategy for Paisley Museum. You will raise significant income for the appeal through major gifts and by generating wider support through cultivation events and appeals. A significant part of this role will be to manage relationships – with key supporters and internally with the Campaign Development Committee, the project management team and Renfrewshire Council’s marketing and communications team.

This role will line manage the Fundraising Assistant who will provide the essential administrative, data and supporter management for the team.

If you would like to be part of a prestigious, high-profile capital appeal and have a passion for re-imagining our past to transform our future, please contact us today.
