We are seeking a fundraising officer to lead and deliver a portfolio of fundraising activities to maximise life-time value donations from our regular giving pool (donors gifting up to £1,000 a year). Projects within the portfolio will be defined by specific strategic objectives and will vary year on year, but will typically include direct mail postal appeals, telephone campaigns, crowdfunding, giving days and on-line campaigns.

This is a crucial time for the University’s regular giving programme. Students continue to be hit hard by the cost-of-living crisis and your work will be vital to ensuring students can complete their studies and maximise their experiences whilst at university. Fundraising will also be a key part of the University’s Centenary planning (2026).

You will work closely with motivated colleagues to raise vital funds from a range of supporters including university alumni.

You will have:

  • A demonstrable interest in and experience of fundraising
  • Experience planning and managing long term projects
  • Good communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Good all round IT skills
  • Experience of analysing metrics to improve future work
