We are Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. Door to door we are 22 miles of innovation, art, history and science packed into 4 museums, 3 art galleries, 2 Roman Forts and 1 Archive.
TWAM is a major regional museum, art gallery and archives service. We are supported by the four local authorities in Tyneside and Newcastle University. We are also a National Portfolio Organisation funded by Arts Council England. We hold collections of international importance in archives, art, science and technology, archaeology, military and social history, fashion and natural sciences; and our 200 staff and 500 volunteers use a collection of over 1 million museum objects and 20km of archives to deliver this work.
The Development Team at TWAM is responsible for raising funds and enabling our supporters to keep up to date with the impact of their generosity. By joining the team, you will help to achieve this, ensuring TWAM’s continued success in every aspect of work that you do. Through your work managing the database you will enable TWAM and the team to understand and build relationships with our current and future donor community. This is an exciting moment for anyone wishing to join the Development Team.
The relatively newly established Development Team (2018) is keen to fulfil an ambitious fundraising strategy and work to bring TWAM through the impact covid has had on our museums and galleries. This involves working across a portfolio of projects, programmes (such as our award-winning Learning & Engagement programmes), regular giving schemes and membership, exhibitions (such as Lindisfarne Gospels 2022), annual appeals and partnerships.
We are looking to recruit an Administrative Assistant to join our development team at, what is an exciting and challenging time for the cultural sector and TWAM. This role is crucial in supporting the day-to-day administration associated with TWAM’s fundraising efforts, working across the team and with colleagues across the organisation. The Administrative Assistant will work to ensure that the administration systems and processes that underpin fundraising are supported and provide practical support to ensure the effective stewardship of donors.

Good oral and written communication skills are essential, as is the ability to deal with people at all levels in the organisation.
