Job Description

Applications are invited for the post of



As a result of the retirement of Roger Kelly from the PLC Board in August 2017, Bluebell Railway is seeking applicants for the role of Funding Director.

As a PLC Board member, the Funding Director has responsibility for raising funds from any source (other than commercial lenders), for the preservation, restoration and further development of the heritage assets and activities of the Bluebell Railway.

Whilst previous experience in fundraising will be an advantage, applicants who have work experience in putting forward business cases for support will also be very welcome. Training on specific fundraising processes and procedures can be provided  

Few heritage organisations can survive on day to day revenue alone and this is an important, challenging and very satisfying role.  It is a volunteer post that carries no remuneration or specific hours of duty, but the successful applicant will have sufficient time to undertake the role, with exciting future projects to support and the Bluebell Railway’s Diamond Jubilee Appeal to be organised.

If you are interested in this position and you believe have the right skills or experience for the job, please send your CV.

Applications must be received by 16th July 2017.
