Wolfson College, Oxford seeks a collaborative and experienced fundraiser to be their new Director of Development. Working closely with the President and Governing Body Fellows, the post-holder will create and implement a development strategy aligned to the overall strategy of the College.

Founded in 1966, Wolfson is one of the University of Oxford’s largest graduate colleges and is distinctive in its academic scope and international reach. Wolfson has grown and evolved over the past 50 years, retaining its founding President Sir Isaiah Berlin’s egalitarian ethos of being ‘new, untrammelled and unpyramided’.

Since the establishment of the College Development Office in 2008, there has been a commitment to investing time and resources throughout Wolfson, enabling Development to take great strides. The new Director of Development will contribute to shaping and building the next chapters in the story of this great College by leading the development, external relations and fundraising effort for the College, including designing and implementing specific campaigns to secure large-scale funding.

The successful candidate will have experience in creating and implementing a successful development strategy, preferably in higher education, with a personal track record of creating, developing and taking a major-gift strategy to fruition, resulting in seven figure gifts. S/he will enjoy working in the College’s mature environment and be comfortable operating in London, Mumbai or New York. 

The new Director of Development will be a Governing Body Fellow and trustee of the College, and a key member of the Senior Management team.
