Fundraising Officer

With over 180 years of history educating people at the heart of historic York, York St John University is a prominent university with a large and diverse body of former students (our alumni) and a growing network of partners and supporters. Proactively managing these relationships is key to the next phase of our development, which is why our ambitious new long-term strategy emphasises enhanced alumni connections and a new focus on fundraising.

The role of Fundraising / Philanthropy Officer will help facilitate the university’s new direction, taking a lead on working with potential major donors and corporate partners whilst supporting the setting up of a robust individual giving and stewarding process.

We’re looking for a proactive, confident fundraiser with great communication skills and experience of working with a variety of individual and corporate sources and the confidence to solicit gifts. The successful candidate will understand the importance of developing productive long-term relationships and have the experience to successfully research and developing prospects whilst meeting financial targets. With a wide and varied workload, you’ll be able to juggle a multitude of tasks and know how to effectively prioritise.

The Fundraising and Alumni team is a small but dedicated team. The successful candidate will have plenty of support, but will also be encouraged to develop their own ideas and to manage their own projects.

If you want to work somewhere big enough to make a difference and small enough to make it happen then we'd love to hear from you.
