Alumni Relations Assistant (Maternity Cover)

Goldsmiths, University of London - Development and Alumni Office

The Development and Alumni Office (DAO) is responsible for building a culture of support for Goldsmiths, whether that is through philanthropy, collaboration or advocacy.

Now is an exciting time to join the ten-strong department and to help to shape its success. A new Director of Development and Alumni Relations, Alison Woolley, is recently in post and charged with introducing a step-change in philanthropic support for the institution. In order to do this we are building a new major gift team whilst developing the support systems that underpin both fundraising and our small but award-winning alumni relations operation.

The Alumni Relations Assistant will provide organisational and clerical support to the Alumni Relations and Regular Giving Team to assist the coordination of the Alumni Relations programme of events and activities. You will also occasionally work to support the wider team should business needs require.

The post holder will be an administrator with excellent interpersonal skills, an eye for detail and a good knowledge of development and alumni relations activities. You will be enthusiastic, confident and professional in representing Goldsmiths at events and play a key pivotal role in a team environment.

You will act as the first point of contact for the Alumni Relations team, responding to enquiries by email, telephone, postal and in person in an efficient and friendly manner. And to advise alumni on benefits such as access to the Careers service, volunteering opportunities and groups and networks. You will also assist with the preparation and circulation of communications, including event invitations, e-newsletters and social media.

Please note that this post is 9 months fixed-term.
