West Kowloon Cultural District Authority

Manager, Development, M+ (Ref:17207K)

Hong Kong Island (Cyberport Office)

M+ is a museum dedicated to collecting, exhibiting, and interpreting visual art, design and architecture, moving image, and Hong Kong visual culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Within Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District we are building one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary visual culture in the world, with a bold ambition to establish ourselves as one of the world’s leading cultural institutions. Our aim is to create a new kind of museum that reflects our unique time and place, a museum built upon Hong Kong’s historic balance of the local and the international to define a distinctive and innovative museum for Asia’s twenty-first century.

The M+ Pavilion, which opened in September 2016, serves as the primary site for M+ exhibitions in the run-up to the completion of the M+ building. After M+ opens it will become a new space for artists, designers and organisations to stage independent small-scale exhibitions and events in the Art Park.

Reporting to the Head, Development, M+, the calibre will play an integral role in developing and managing stakeholder relationships, focus on sponsorships and memberships, and play a key support for potential individual major donors.

You will be responsible for:

  • developing and implementing cultivation strategies for key potential major donors to M+;
  • leading on behalf of M+ in initiating new sponsors and donors to support the programmes and activities of M+ by both actively seeking, and supporting the development of new relationships;
  • leading the creation of sponsorship proposals, membership products or any other relevant M+ materials required, and working with the Marketing and Customer Experience team to ensure brand alignment;
  • developing the membership programmes and ensuring all members are communicated with professionally and regularly, and leading on the development and implementation of new membership drives;
  • identifying, developing and initiating ideas and opportunities to grow the membership programmes after the completion of the pilot membership programme;
  • managing any related budget items in relation to membership and development where necessary;
  • managing all sponsorship and membership data, ensuring adherence to the necessary data privacy regulations;
  • initiating and overseeing all events for sponsors, donors, members or general fundraising successfully, and ensuring that they are pitched appropriately, managed smoothly and on time and on budget; and
  • developing a close working relationship with the WKCDA's Development team to ensure clear communication and alignment between the two areas.

  • have at least 5 years of relevant working experience, preferably in arts institutions or other not-for-profit organisations;
