For more than a century, the University of Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds, through outstanding teaching and world-leading research.
This is a career defining opportunity to join one of the most exciting and ambitious UK Higher Education fundraising and volunteering campaigns.
Do you want to work with a group of passionate, creative and dynamic individuals who are committed to supporting each other and the communities they serve?
In 2019 the University of Birmingham launched the ambitious Birmingham In Action campaign, which commits to raising over £400million of charitable funding and achieving one million volunteer hours, positioning the University as one of the world leaders in university development. They are now at the midpoint of this sector-leading campaign, and have secured significant support and investment into the team. In this first phase of their recruitment plans, they are looking for 5 talented fundraisers and an experienced prospect research specialist to join their dynamic and ambitious team.
As International Philanthropy Manager (Grade 7) you will be key in helping us to expand our reach across North America. Working closely with the Senior Philanthropy Manager (North America), you will inspire and influence our active and enthusiastic alumni committees, and manage a portfolio of potential supporters. Your experience of securing gifts at the 5-figure level (or more) and your self-motivated, confident and approachable manner, will be key to your success in this role. There will be opportunities for extensive travel in this exciting role.
In return, you’ll get to work with a group of passionate, creative and dynamic individuals who are committed to supporting each other and the communities they serve. If you are attracted by the scale of the University of Birmingham’s ambition, the excellence of their campaign and the opportunity to play a big part in making their plans a reality, we’d like to hear from you.
