Job description

External Engagement and Global - Global Advancement

This full-time hybrid role is permanent and available for immediate start.

The Team

Global Advancement is responsible for developing lifelong relationships between the University and its alumni and other supporters. The Operations team is one of three teams within Global Advancement and is responsible for supporting and informing the wider directorate by providing prospect research, data management, philanthropic income management, data systems management, insight, donor relations and planning and strategy development support. The work of the Operations team underpins the success of the wider Global Advancement team with the prospect research team particularly focused on supporting the philanthropy team in securing transformational gifts.

Main purpose of the job

The main purpose of this new role is to design and deliver a variety of reporting focused on the activity and outcomes of the fundraising team and to create customised reports that enable decisions on future strategy to be data- driven. The post-holder will report to, and work closely with, the Head of Data & Prospect Research as well as working alongside senior fundraisers up to the level of “Head of” to identify their data reporting needs and to produce a suite of reports that enable comprehensive management of prospect activity and performance against a range of KPIs. This role will design and produce a report which enables Global Advancement to track and understand the “journey” of its supporters. This role will also design and produce reports to enable data-driven decision making in the allocation of prospects to fundraisers. Additionally, this role will support the prospect research function, using data to advise on the allocation and assigning of prospects to fundraiser pools, as well as managing some of those pools personally. The role is key to the success of the University's next philanthropic fundraising campaign by enabling fundraisers and prospect researchers to have access to high quality data analysis and reporting to support and guide their decision making.
