Donor Relations Officer

Salary: Grade 6 (£30,487 - £36,024 p.a. depending on experience)

This role will be based on the university campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

The University has committed to growing its philanthropic income to support the delivery of the ‘Universal Value – Global Change' strategy. Donor Relations is a critical part of this work with strategic oversight for supporter stewardship within the Advancement Team. We work in partnership with our team of fundraisers to develop and implement stewardship plans for major gift donors (giving £25K - £1M) and transformational donors (giving more than £1M), in order to deliver exceptional donor experience and increase supporter loyalty and giving.

We create detailed and bespoke stewardship on a wide variety of projects, in written, film and digital formats, to engage with our most significant donors, recognise their giving and update them on the impact their support is having.

The Donor Relations Officer role is a great opportunity for a driven individual with a creative, motivated and detailed work ethic to join our high-paced Philanthropy Team and contribute to the Advancement Team's ambitious objective.
