About the charity/role

This role will focus predominantly on trusts and foundations relationships, supporting some HNWI fundraising where necessary.

It’s a great opportunity for you to put your stamp on things and take a creative approach – they’re an organisation that thrive on new ideas and challenging the status quo.

Paintings in Hospitals isn’t a museum (although they do have a collection larger than the National Gallery). Their USP is their loan programme and through this there is a wealth of case studies and anecdotes to support any fundraiser coming into this position.

As a charity with a Royal Patron, significant connections to artists and some well connected existing partners, there is a great opportunity for you to really make an impact here.
