Development Managers - two posts

We are inviting applications for two Development Manager posts to join our energetic fundraising team and help ensure the delivery of revenue fundraising targets.

This is an exciting time to join The London Library. We are a significant way into our ambitious capital campaign, having recently completed Stage 1 (carried out in 3 phases) with the refurbishment of the Library’s main Victorian Reading Room and the creation of a very warmly received Writers’ Room. The work to date has been greeted with much acclaim, most recently winning RIBA London and National Awards for the architectural excellence of its design. We are now working to achieve Stage 2, the final phases of our plans, which will include the refurbishment of the older parts of our historic Grade II listed building, the construction of extra book stacks and the addition of a roof-top reading room, members’ refreshment room and terrace.

Currently some 80% of the Library’s core income is from membership subscriptions and increasing member numbers is also a high priority for the Development department, under the overall leadership of the Development Director.

Founded in 1841, The London Library has become one of the most important literary organisations in the country.  Housed in its historic building close to Piccadilly Circus is a collection of over one million books and periodicals that forms the basis for one of the largest independent lending libraries in the world.  Past members have ranged from Charles Darwin to Virginia Woolf and amongst its 7,000 members today are leading writers, scholars and researchers.  The Patron of the Library is HM the Queen and its President is Sir Tom Stoppard.
