  • To communicate clearly and effectively, and to create good relationships with other departments at the Collection.

  • To deliver the revenue and endowment target working alongside the Head of Fundraising, who focuses on major gifts, with the assistance of the Development Officer (Benefactors and Legacy Giving).
