The University of Strathclyde’s Alumni & Development department are seeking to appoint an experienced and creative major gifts fundraiser to join their successful and established fundraising team.
The Head of Philanthropy is a new role within the department, one that will create and develop transformational donor giving opportunities.
This is an exciting time to be joining the team, as it realises ambitious plans to enhance its fundraising programmes and their impact.
In particular, you will work closely with academic colleagues and the University’s leadership staff to develop innovative fundraising projects for a variety of strategic funders.
You will work autonomously to build strong relationships with potential major donors including senior alumni, philanthropists, trusts & foundations and companies.
You will prepare compelling, complex, bespoke funding proposals for donors. Your funding projects will benefit the University’s students, its teaching and its research on a global scale.
You will also be part of the department’s management team. Meetings and events associated with this role will continue to be held virtually during the pandemic.
