Competitive salary and benefits

House of Illustration is the UK’s only public gallery dedicated solely to illustration and graphic art.

Founded by Sir Quentin Blake and some of the UK’s most respected illustrators in 2002, House of Illustration opened in July 2014 in King’s Cross, London. Established to champion the power of illustration, the gallery places contemporary visual culture at its heart and works to introduce it to the widest possible audience.

Through their exhibitions, learning and education programmes, commissions, competitions, and events, the House of Illustration has engaged with audiences across the globe.  To support and further develop their activities and offerings, the gallery is entering an exciting period of growth and change, including plans for a new permanent home in London.  To help them realise their ambitions, the House of Illustration is seeking a new Head of Development to develop and deliver a robust fundraising programme that will grow with the gallery.
