BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with Renfrewshire Council in their search for a Fundraising Assistant (Paisley Museum Re-Imagined).
“A history of royalty and radicalism… a town built by thread, made world-famous by a pattern… home to artists and artisans, musicians and mill girls. Paisley has it all.”
To galvanise its many assets and history, the historic Scottish town is set to undergo a massive £100m transformation - the legacy of Paisley’s UK City of Culture 2021 bid. At the heart of this is the £42m redevelopment of Paisley Museum.
With the appointment of award-winning architects AL_A, Renfrewshire Council is set to place the Museum, and the town, on the world stage. And quite rightly so. The Museum site houses a wealth of treasures including the Coats Observatory, the world’s largest collection of Paisley Shawls, and collections which have international significance in telling our industrial, social and natural history.
This incredible project has already raised much of the funds required, however, there is still work to be done. With the recruitment of the Capital Appeal Director in its final stages, Renfrewshire Council is now looking for a Fundraising Assistant to support the efforts to raise £5m.
The Fundraising Assistant will provide the essential administrative, data, financial and supporter management for the small but ambitious capital appeal team.
You will assist with fundraising research, setting up processes and procedures for the team and will be responsible for managing diaries and related travel, event logistics for fundraising cultivation events, social media and website management and data and financial management.
A key part of this role will be to build excellent working relationships with supporters, the Campaign Development Committee, the project management team and Renfrewshire Council’s marketing and communications team.
