Philanthropic Finance and Projects Manager for a forward thinking and successful University.

An opportunity to lead on the financial management for a Philanthropic cause.

The University of Warwick is a forward-thinking institution with a constant presence in the rankings of the world’s greatest universities and an enviable reputation for academic and commercial success.

Over the years, the University of Warwick has been shaped by the generosity, support and friendship of individual donors, business partners and charitable organisations. In 2015 Warwick celebrated its 50th anniversary by completing the 50Forward Campaign. This sparked the University appetite to enhance the role of the Development Office by building a team that specialises in big gift fundraising, with responsibility for building a culture of philanthropy to support the delivery of the Vice Chancellor’s 2030 strategy.

The Office is led by the Director of Development, who is supported by two Deputy Directors, one for Philanthropy and one for Strategy and Operations. Over the last 12 months there has been a full restructure to create a new platform for success, with an emphasis on building the data analytics, financial systems and research support to enable big gift fundraising to thrive.

The Philanthropic Finance and Projects Manager is a new role, reflecting the strategic importance of philanthropic income and awards in this re-energised team. The post holder will play a key role in ensuring the University meets its obligations for the administration and award of donations. They will build relationships with colleagues across the institution and improve how we report on the impact of donations and ensure donor’s requirements for the use of funds are met. They will work closely with fundraising and finance colleagues to plan projects and model income and expenditure. They will assist with developing feasibility plans for fundraising projects and with campaign planning. They will be a valued member of the team.

We are looking for someone with strong accounting and communication skills, with the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and who sees opportunities for change and improvement as an exciting challenge.

Proposed interview date: 24 September 2019.
