Bishopsgate Institute is the delivery arm of the Bishopsgate Foundation, founded in 1894 for “the promotion of the education of the public”. We are a small, independent charity with our own extraordinary premises at the crossroads of the City, Spitalfields and the East End.
The charity is financially independent, relying on generating income from its venue hire activity, alongside rental income from its endowment. In addition to managing the venue hire side of our business, this role manages the planning and delivery of all activity in the building, both commercial hires and charitable programme.
This role reports in to the senior team. It is not a sales job and there is no commission structure, but it will require skills in closing deals and proactively sourcing and securing new venue hire business in the sectors in which the Institute can deliver high quality events. The first priority for all our spaces remains with the Institute’s own programme as this is the charity’s purpose. We have a policy on the kinds of commercial hire we can accept, and those we cannot, and this role is required to uphold it.
Please go through the documents carefully and submit your application to HRAdmin@bishopsgate.org.uk before Sunday 2 February at midnight.
