Senior Development Executive (Major Gifts)

Magdalen College, Oxford

Magdalen College is inviting applications from experienced fundraisers for a senior post within its Development Office. We are looking for a dedicated and experienced fundraising professional who has expertise in managing philanthropic relationships with high net worth individuals, outstanding interpersonal and communication skills and a high level of motivation. This is an opportunity for a seasoned fundraiser to take a leading role in the realisation of Magdalen’s campaign goals, taking on a portfolio of prospects, predominantly in London, and cultivating and soliciting gifts of £25k - £150k through face-face visits. The post holder will play a vital part with the Development Director in implementing the College’s fundraising strategy, developing relationships with alumni around the world.

The successful candidate will be offered the opportunity to work flexibly and, if necessary, remotely as long as they are within relatively easy reach of London and Oxford. The role requires substantial out-of-hours work for events, meetings and travel (UK and overseas).

Development at Magdalen has the full support and engagement of the President and wider Fellowship of the College. The successful candidate will work alongside a Director, Senior Development Advisor (Legacies), Head of Alumni Engagement, Communications Officer, Alumni Engagement & Stewardship Officer, Research & Data Insight Officer, and a Development Assistant. While each member has specific responsibilities, it is a friendly “all hands on” office where considerable teamwork is encouraged and expected.

The salary will be at University Grade 8 (currently £39,992 to £52,132) dependent on level of experience. Benefits include contributory pension scheme, generous holidays, free lunch, car parking and use of sports facilities.
