Location: Working from home, with some travel to London required.

Contract: April 2017-March 2018

Fee: £5,000 (including VAT) plus £200 expenses

engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, wishes to appoint a fundraising consultant or consultants to work with the staff team to secure funding for research and activities in England in 2017-22. engage is the lead organisation for gallery education, with c.800 members in the UK and internationally across c.270 visual arts organisations.

In 2011 engage worked with fundraising consultants who:

 - Undertook a review of engage’s fundraising history

- Proposed a fundraising strategy and plan

- Developed a case for support for engage and for individual activities

- Researched trusts and foundations for engage to apply to

- Supported the engage team to apply for funding


From 2014-17 engage worked with a fundraising consultant on applications to trusts and foundations for engage activities and for core costs. As a result, support was secured for activities including: Children’s Art Week 2015-17, Generation ART (a touring exhibition of children and young peoples art), for engage conference 2015 and 2016 and for the Max Reinhardt Literacy Awards (MRLA). As a second-tier membership organisation, removed from direct delivery of activities to participants,engage experiences some challenges in securing support from trusts and foundations.

- Refresh the case for support for engage and for individual activities
