Development Manager, Strawberry Hill House & Garden


Strawberry Hill House & Garden is a Grade 1 listed building set within a Grade II* listed landscape, created by Horace Walpole in the 18th century. The House is world-renowned for its unique architectural style and is one of the first (and few surviving) examples of domestic Gothic architecture.

The Strawberry Hill Trust is responsible for the stewardship of the House (an Arts Council Accredited Museum) and garden. The House contains a collection of paintings, miniatures, prints, books, works of decorative art and furniture. The Trust also runs an extensive community outreach and learning programme, alongside which the income-generating activities of visitors, catering, retail, hires, exhibitions and events take place.

The Trust is seeking to appoint a Development Manager, with a proven track record, to work with the Director and Trustees to secure sustainable income streams and build relationships to support the ambitions of our recently renewed Strategic Plan.

The ideal candidate will come with experience and energy with an understanding of the arts, heritage and culture sector and a passion for the work of the Strawberry Hill Trust.

We are committed to ensuring that our work force fully represents the diversity of the communities we serve. We would therefore welcome applications from people from currently under-represented groups.
