Principal Gifts Officer
The University of Warwick is one of the most successful young universities in the UK. With a dynamic and forward-thinking culture, and a reputation for combining innovation with the relentless pursuit of excellence, it is firmly established within the top ten of all UK university rankings and currently 51st in the world. Its Development Office is on a similar trajectory. With the appointment of Matt Ferguson as its Director of Development at the start of 2018, the team has been challenged to raise the funds needed to take the University and its students to the next level. The Team has just closed its best financial year ever thanks to the growth of Principal Gifts, and is excited by the chance to continuing setting new records.
To help meet this challenge, the University is now looking to recruit a Principal Gifts Officer who will lead on transformational gifts of £1 million and above for both donor-led and project-led fundraising opportunities across the University. The post-holder will develop and manage a balanced portfolio of prospects with a minimum net worth of £100 million.
This role presents an exceptional opportunity to advance relationships with the University of Warwick’s most important donors. Working closely with the Director of Development, senior leadership and academics, you will develop bespoke donor opportunities that align with the interests of donors and prospects. Experience of working with ultra high net worth individuals will be essential, as will excellent interpersonal and communication skills and experience of stakeholder management in a complex environment.
