Global Development Officer

Imperial College London - Advancement

Campus: South Kensington

Are you a highly persuasive and compelling communicator? Are you a professional fundraiser (or have experience working in a fundraising/development office) with both an interest in developing your fundraising skills and in managing overseas relationships with high net worth individuals, particularly in Europe? If so, this could be the perfect career opportunity for you.

The Global Development team in the Advancement Division is in search of a driven, tactful, and diplomatic Development Officer to join their ambitious team, to provide a truly white glove donor experience.

With a strong understanding matched with a deep interest in the profession, the post holder will work closely with the Director of Global Development, Director of Alumni Relations, and other senior staff to achieve outstanding results.

S/he will manage a portfolio of major gifts prospects with the ultimate goal of increasing giving in support of College strategic priorities. You will be politically astute with a tactful and diplomatic communication style, skilled at building relationships and strategically minded to ensure the most effective processes, practices and techniques are in place to deliver results. In addition to raising funds across Europe, the post holder is also responsible for supporting the administrative needs of the Director.

The overarching strategy of Advancement is to raise funds for scholarships, academic positions, research centres and capital projects, securing private financial support from those who are committed to our academic mission and building Imperial’s global reputation. The Division oversees a wide programme of events that seek to expand the College’s reach, strengthen and enlarge our supporter base, increase philanthropic support and engage alumni, friends and other stakeholders in the life of the College. This is a high impact and high visibility division which relies on extremely motivated and skilled fundraising professionals to deliver a quality end to end gift giving experience.

This new opportunity will suit an individual who is interested in progressing in a career as a frontline fundraiser and who is also highly skilled in the administration space.

It’s the College’s mission to achieve enduring excellence in all that we do for the benefit of society – and we are looking for the most talented people to help us get there.

This position is full-time and open-ended/permanent.
