Applications are invited for the above post, based at our University Park Campus. In 2011, the University launched an ambitious fundraising campaign, Impact: The Nottingham Campaign. Having raised its £150m target in philanthropic support early in 2016, the Campaign now aims to reach a new total of £200m and to engage 1,000 volunteers by July 2017. The University is then looking to build on the successes gained through the Impact Campaign and will continue to have ambitious fundraising goals.

The purpose of this role is to maximise philanthropic income, primarily by securing gifts (£1k-£25k) from individuals, particularly alumni of the University, and other charitable sources in support of the University’s priorities.

Speedy and accurate recording of all interactions will be important in maintaining data relied on by both the role-holder and others within the office. 

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, highly self-motivated and determined with excellent communication skills. They will be required to be flexible at times as regards to working hours and enjoy a mobile role involving UK based travel. Working in a busy, dynamic and challenging environment, the successful candidate will thrive on working towards and achieving ambitious targets. 

Candidates will hold A’ levels, HNC or HND in a relevant subject, or equivalent qualifications/certification, plus considerable experience in a relevant role(s) OR be able to demonstrate broad substantial relevant experience demonstrating general knowledge and experience in a related role in Higher Education or the third sector.

The successful candidate will have an ability to engage and influence people from all backgrounds, ages and nationalities.
