Philanthropy has been a successful and integrated pillar of Scotch College’s strategic plan for many years.
Founded in 1919, Scotch has over 1150 students and more than 250 staff. It is located on two adjacent campuses in Torrens Park and Mitcham in the inner-southern suburbs of Adelaide.
After this outstanding success, there is now an exceptional opportunity to lead the philanthropic endeavours of the College as Director of Philanthropy. With a focus on careful cultivation and sophisticated solicitation, you will be an experienced practitioner who can work at the highest level, including with the Scotch College Foundation Board and the Scotch College Council.
The successful candidate will require experience in philanthropic fundraising, ideally in major gifts which will have been gained in the education or broader not for profit sector. Robust stakeholder management skills with the ability to build credible relationships with key stakeholders across the organisation, while being mindful of historically held relationships with the community among current staff will be integral.
