Wellington College

Location: Crowthorne
Salary: Competitive
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 14th August 2019
Closes: 6th September 2019

A school like no other, Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. Development has played an important part of this success in recent years and we are now looking for an experienced development professional to help us move to the next level as we head into a new exciting stage for the College.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with experience of working in development/alumni relations or fundraising, to join our Wellington Community and Development team.

The Wellington Community and Development department raises funds to deliver the College’s development plan for capital projects alongside our ‘Widening Opportunity’ bursary programme. It also provides a wide range of life-long engagement opportunities for our global community of students and parents, past and present, and preserves the College’s history by managing its records and artefacts.

Working closely with the Director of the Wellington Community and Development, you’ll help deliver an outstanding engagement and donor participation programme to generate a regular annual income of £5+ million through well-managed prospect research, identification, engagement and stewardship.

Supporting the generation of significant individual gifts, as well as encouraging regular giving support - particularly relevant for the bursary programme - will be key. When it comes to developing individual prospect identification and stewardship plans, working with external agencies or supporting the development and delivery of fundraising strategies, we’ll rely on you.

You will have experience of all aspects of campaign development including prospect identification, desk research, campaign planning, campaign material production, on and off-line communications, securing 5 figure gifts - through to on-going donor care and stewardship and fundraising volunteer management.

We are also looking for someone that understands what good legacy fundraising looks like and knows how to develop a peer-to-peer approach to encourage wider participation.

Management skills are important too, as is a target-driven approach, high level of accuracy and attention to detail.

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you are committed to contributing towards the College community and keen to help drive our future fundraising activities, apply today.

Closing date: 6pm, Friday 6 September 2019
Interviews will take place: 12 & 13 September 2019
