Collective

Charity registered in Scotland SC009405

Collective brings people together to look at, think about and produce contemporary art in a new kind of city observatory. Established in 1984, Collective has long supported new work by artists who are at a pivotal stage in their development. In November 2018, we opened our new home on Calton Hill, featuring the restored City Observatory, City Dome, and a purpose-built exhibition space. Our programme of exhibitions, walks, and events presents contemporary art in all its diversity. We provide artists with the opportunity to make new work and audiences the chance to see it here first. By inspiring, engaging with, and learning from the people and groups around us, we aim to contribute to local, national, and international conversations.

Current vacancies

Development Manager

  • Full time
  • Circa £30,000 – £32,000
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 30th September 2022

As Development Manager, you will join us at a crucial and exciting time, as we look forward to a return to more normal operations, and work to re-engage with audiences, stakeholders and supporters across the city and beyond, to raise the profile of Collective and our new home in the City Observatory.

Following the success of our initial capital redevelopment fundraising campaign from 2013 to 2018, we have now entered a new phase, where ongoing support from trusts and foundations, donations and individual giving will be key to our sustainability. A recent report by Cause 4 indicated that we have significant potential to grow in this area, and the Development and Enterprise Manager will play a key role in supporting this ambition.

The new role will work closely with the Director to generate new income streams for Collective, with an emphasis on growing support from Trusts and Foundations, corporate sponsors, individual giving, and maximising the potential of our trading enterprises.
