The University of Oxford’s Medical Sciences Development team is recruiting a Deputy Head of Development to work closely with the Head of Development for Medical Sciences in leading a highly effective and fast-growing fundraising team. This is an exciting opportunity to represent the university ranked first in the world by the Times Higher Education rankings for the sixth year running. The role includes line-management of several team members as well as the opportunity to work with major philanthropists to advance the life-changing work of our world-leading medical researchers.

We are looking for a highly motivated and inspirational leader with management experience and a proven track record in raising major gifts. The role requires the ability to think strategically, build strong relationships with senior stakeholders (both internal and external), understand and discuss complex academic projects, and use creativity and initiative to solve problems. Outstanding fundraising, stewardship, management and communication skills are needed to be successful in this role.

The Medical Sciences Division at Oxford has had an extraordinary time since early 2020, leading in many of the research areas relating to the pandemic, most notably on the Oxford–AstraZeneca vaccine. The team provides support to the 16 departments within the Division, raising funds for priorities such as global and mental health, as well as a number of other exciting and ground-breaking areas in medical sciences. As part of the University of Oxford Development Office, the Medical Sciences development team is high-achieving and friendly.
