A bit about Marketing, Recruitment and External Relations… 

In the Directorate of Marketing, Recruitment and External Relations, we are responsible for the core range of activities that promote and engage with our external environment and stakeholders. This includes both prospective and current students, businesses and our local community. Made up of Marketing and Communications, Student Recruitment and Outreach and External Relations teams, we work together to plan and deliver key activities that support the University’s ambitions for growth, diversity and an increased profile. 

The External Relations team is a busy team with a wide-ranging remit across a variety of activities and stakeholders. We have a shared ambition to raise the University’s profile and reputation on a local, national, and international level. External Relations encompasses the Art Collection team, Events & Conferencing, Public Affairs, and Alumni Engagement & Development, within which this post sits. The Alumni Engagement & Development Team is dedicated to retaining a life-long relationship with our graduates. We identify and unlock sources of philanthropic funding across our alumni, charitable trusts & foundations and corporate partners for the benefit of our students, campus and communities.

What do we want?

Are you passionate about making a difference to real lives? Are you an enthusiastic fundraiser?

We are looking for a new Development Officer (Major Gifts) to join the University of Salford.

Your role will be critical in working closely with our fantastic network of alumni, industry partners and charitable trusts & foundations to source new major philanthropic gifts to support key projects and programmes across the institution. Examples include fundraising for cutting-edge research, new buildings & world-class facilities, outreach programmes within the community and/or scholarships and bursaries to increase access to Higher Education for underrepresented students.

We are looking for someone who is passionate, creative and results-focused, with strong communication and relationship-building skills. Sound like you or someone you know? Please take a look below to understand more.

What’s in it for you?

With over 200 languages spoken across Greater Manchester, we want to create an inspirational, inclusive learning and working environment, celebrating the diversity of our University community in our everyday conversations.  Our student population is already incredibly diverse, and we want to ensure this is reflected across our colleague profile as well. 

There is a varied benefits package available through ‘MySalford’ where you can tailor your benefits to suit your own lifestyle – everything from additional annual leave, savings on High Street shopping, travel discounts as well as health and wellbeing support. To maintain work/life balance (and to help you through this pandemic!) you can connect to work from wherever you are, whether it’s our Peel Park Campus, MediaCityUK or your living room at home, the tools are there for you to do your best work from your chosen location. Flexibility on working from home is supported where possible, however the role will be based on the University of Salford campus. 

However you identify, whatever your pathway has been to get here, come and join us at the University of Salford where we are all proud to belong -  watch us in action here!
