The main components of this job include implementing a young alumni engagement programme, managing the Reunion Giving programme, gift solicitations via phone, face-to-face fundraising and research.

Founded in 1347, this Cambridge College is a lively and friendly community, catering for approximately 80 academic staff and 750 undergraduate and graduate students. The College recently launched its most ambitious capital campaign yet to raise £75 million. Their Development Office is the longest established professional development operation in Cambridge. It provides circa 25% of the College’s annual operating income and it is the only office to have a Corporate Partnership Programme. The successful candidate would be joining a highly skilled, diverse team of 12 specialist development professionals who address all aspects of alumni relations, individual and corporate fundraising.

The Development Office is looking for someone who is keen to pursue a career in development and is therefore looking to build their track record in the field by widening the scope and breadth of their knowledge and expertise.

This post is an outstanding opportunity for someone wishing to develop their fundraising skills and learn in one of the most progressive development offices in Cambridge.

Benefits include: 33 days holiday = 25 holiday days and 8 bank holidays, free meal whilst on duty, subsidised healthcare with AXA PHC and Medicash, gym on site, Cycle-to-Work Scheme and an attendance bonus scheme after the satisfactory completion of the probationary period.
