ONE UNIVERSITY – TWO COUNTRIES – THREE TROPICAL LOCATIONS
James Cook University’s mission is to create a brighter future for life in the tropics world-wide through graduates and discoveries that make a difference. Ranked in the top 2% of universities globally (Academic Ranking of World Universities), JCU aims to position itself as a national and international leader in teaching and research, addressing critical challenges facing natural and human systems in the tropics. A defining feature of JCU is its tropical location, with the Townsville and Cairns campuses adjacent to two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforests of Northern Queensland. The University’s Singapore campus provides important strategic opportunities to enhance JCU’s presence in the region.
The Division of Global Strategy and Engagement serves to support JCU’s strategic ambition through its marketing, international and engagement activities. The Division seeks a new Director, Advancement, who will develop and execute a comprehensive advancement strategy to increase income to the University from a range of philanthropic and donor sources, leveraging the University’s positioning as a global leader in the tropics. As the public face of Advancement both internally and externally, the Director will develop a sustainable culture and increased involvement in fundraising activity, based on a strong vision and sense of purpose, across the University.
You will demonstrate a proven track record of leading successful fundraising programs, preferably within the Higher Education sector. As a strategic and visionary leader, you will possess the necessary communication and interpersonal skills to both persuade and inspire a variety of stakeholders internally and externally. Your experience in embedding a high-performance culture will ensure success in the role.
