The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment (SSEE) is creating the new role of Alumni Strategy and Engagement Manager to build a thriving alumni community who will join us in accelerating the sustainability transition.
The post has been created at an exciting time, as the School is undergoing rapid growth in reach and influence including through one of the most applied- for MSc programmes in Oxford.
The purpose of the role is to build and strengthen relationships between alumni communities (including students, executive education graduates, and senior advisors) and SSEE and create a two-way exchange of information, networking and fundraising opportunities, and real-world impact. We aim to inform, equip and motivate our alumni networks to join us in our mission of supporting enterprise, public and private, to achieve net zero emissions and the sustainable development goals.
