More than 100 years ago Swinburne opened its doors with a
simple premise in mind: to provide education to a section of society otherwise
denied further education. Over a century later, Swinburne continues to
persevere in its commitment to not only provide, but also transform education
through strong industry engagement, social inclusion, a desire to innovate and,
above all, a determination to create positive change.
Swinburne Advancement Office proactively supports the University’s strategic
goals by fostering relationships with major stakeholders to build passion,
engagement and commitment to the University.
Its role is to attract transformational philanthropic support and
inspire alumni to engage in the life of the institution as volunteers,
ambassadors and supporters.
The Advancement Office now seeks an experienced
development professional as the Director
of Development, who will lead a collaborative and highly professional fundraising team. In this role, you will be responsible for
developing and implementing innovative and multifaceted philanthropic programs
to secure private financial support to advance the strategic priorities of the
University. Such programs will include major gifts, grants from Trusts and
Foundations, annual giving, multi-year giving and bequests.
With extensive experience in
developing and leading successful fundraising programs at a senior level, your collaborative
approach to leadership and management will enable you to work with senior staff
across the University to facilitate internal networks to identify opportunities,
and nurture relationships with donors and potential donors.
