This is a fantastic opportunity for a senior fundraiser to join one of the most dynamic and fast growing Development and Alumni relations teams in the UK.

As a Senior Development Officer, you will be responsible for engaging and building strong connections for the University with high level supporters and philanthropists, managing a portfolio of potential donors towards agreed targets and performance metrics. Your focus will primarily be on developing philanthropic provision for health and medical related activity through the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health as well as other University philanthropic priorities.
