Competitive salary

Founded in 1862, our client is an independent co-educational boarding and day school which offers a fully-rounded education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18.  Since its earliest days, the College’s distinctive and progressive learning environment has shaped many prominent, influential and distinguished figures.  Combining a transformational educational experience with a focus on service to society, a key part of its philosophy is about empowering each child to follow their passion and to build their self-confidence.

The College now seeks an outstanding fundraiser who can build its development operations, raising significant philanthropic funds for essential building projects, sporting facilities, scholarships and bursaries.  The post holder will be responsible for developing and implementing the College’s philanthropic fundraising strategy.

Our client is looking for an individual with a strong track record in securing major gifts.  Applicants must be able to develop and produce effective strategic plans and deliver them operationally.  This is an exciting opportunity that will appeal especially to those with fundraising experience who are looking to further their career in the Development sector.

Degree level education, an engaging personality, energy, can-do attitude and excellent communication skills are all essential prerequisites.

The starting salary will be competitive, and dependent on relevant skills and experience.
