Role

Strathclyde would like to appoint an early career fundraiser to the role of Alumni Fund Officer, working within its established and successful Alumni and Development team. This role will deliver fundraising programmes to support the University’s Alumni Fund – a fund which is championed by many thousands of our graduates, and which supports the whole student experience.

You will deliver a range of fundraising projects including an annual student telethon campaign, direct mail, and digital projects (including Giving Day campaigns). Working across the University, you will develop close and supportive relationships with senior staff and talented students alike.

The University’s Alumni Fund helps students to have an outstanding student experience by funding a range of projects including scholarships for students in need; community programmes; international experiences; learning resources and student-led projects. You will raise awareness of the Fund to the student community, and you will manage the funding application process, taking an active role in awarding funding to successful projects.

This is an exciting time to be part of the Alumni & Development team at Strathclyde in the University’s Diamond Jubilee anniversary, celebrating its achievements and its future ambitions for its students, research, and teaching.

You will have a strong interest in fundraising, ideally looking to take the next step in your career as a fundraising professional. You will also have strong project management and administrative skills and the ability to create powerful content which introduces donors to the need for the Alumni Fund at Strathclyde and its positive impact for our students.

Formal interviews for this post will be held on 13/06/2024.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Karen Boyle, Head of Development (karen.boyle.100@strath.ac.uk).
