UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We are not afraid to take risks. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. In September 2016 UCL launched ‘It’s All Academic’, our bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus ( ). It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions. One year into the Campaign we are delighted to have reached a £300million milestone.

From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Development office. We are a team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals who work together to achieve remarkable things with a global impact, and we would love for you to be part of this exciting journey and our success.

This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As Senior Alumni Relations Manager (International) you will devise, deliver and manage a targeted and collaborative strategy for UCL’s relationship with its international alumni community in East and South East Asia and other priority regions. The role will focus on increasing engagement amongst alumni and supporters in support of the Campaign for UCL, a key enabler for the delivery of UCL2034.

You will have experience of working in a role with a responsibility for engaging a variety of audiences, ideally in alumni relations, membership programmes or volunteer management. You will also have experience of managing long-term overseas projects, with the expertise to adapt plans to take into account different cultures and environments. You will have managed a range of projects concurrently and have an outstanding ability to think strategically and plan for the medium and long term as well as on a day-to-day basis.

We know that our people are our greatest asset and in return we provide an empowering, values-based environment where personal and professional growth is invested in. We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours. We also value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic. Expectations are high and we work hard, but the rewards are huge.
