We are seeking a talented development professional to raise funds for lifelong learning at Oxford University.

You will be an experienced and effective development professional, with a confident, creative approach to development, and a passion for continuous and lifelong learning to advance knowledge and to ensure individuals reach their full potential, regardless of their background or stage in life. A graduate or equivalent, higher education or not-for-profit experience would be helpful. You will have excellent communication skills and a strong personal drive and gift for relationship management, working to clear fundraising goals. Confident and credible at a senior level, you will collaborate closely with academic, college and development staff.

You will be required to upload a letter of application as part of your online application. 

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Monday 24 June 2019 can be considered. Initial interviews are currently scheduled to take place on Friday 12 July 2019; second round interviews will take place during the week commencing 15 July 2019.
