UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We are not afraid to take risks. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. In September 2016 UCL launched ‘It’s All Academic’, our bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus. It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions.

From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Advancement office. We are a team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals who work together to achieve remarkable things.

This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As Senior Philanthropy Manager (International), you will build relationships which lead to six and seven figure level gifts from a variety of income streams in support of UCL’s Campaign priorities.

You will play a critical role in connecting the academic community and OVPA with prospective supporters and will be expected to travel, particularly to North America.

This position is funded for 12 months in the first instance and could be a secondment opportunity for existing UCL staff.

You will have a significant track record in client relationship or partnerships management. You will have demonstrable success in managing a high value and diverse portfolio of clients/partners/donors, specifically North American based. You will have experience of building and fostering excellent working relationships with senior staff to advance organisational strategic priorities.

We know that our people are our greatest asset and in return we provide an empowering, values-based environment where personal and professional growth is invested in. We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours. We also value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic.
