Director of Development

Aldenham Foundation

Aldenham Foundation is a charitable foundation comprising three independent schools and two nurseries, educating children from 2 to 18 years. The schools enjoy an excellent reputation for their academic, cultural, and sporting achievements and for the quality of their pastoral care.

The Foundation is now recruiting a Director of Development to lead an experienced and forward thinking Fundraising and Alumni Relations team and build on a highly successful history of philanthropic giving. The successful applicant will also work closely with key individuals across the Foundation, including the Head of Foundation, Commercial Director and Marketing Team.  

This is an exciting time to join the Foundation, and this role will be pivotal to supporting the Head, who has now been in post for eighteen months, and Governing Body who have ambitious plans for the Foundation. The successful applicant will be instrumental in contributing towards these plans. Reporting directly to the Foundation’s Bursar, the Development Director will be responsible for the development and implementation of an ambitious and innovative Development and Alumni Relations strategy. 

The Foundation is committed to the continuation and growth of its extensive Bursary programme and the Director of Development will have a focus on major gifts to support this programme, in addition to a wide range of capital projects. The successful candidate will bring extensive, varied and demonstrable experience of substantial face-to-face major gift fundraising, ideally in a complex organisation. However, it is crucial that they also have extensive experience in developing key relationships across multi-strand communities and working with senior leaders to build and develop a culture of philanthropy and a programme of strategic donor support. The Development Office has an established warm prospect pool, and this position holds endless opportunity and potential for impact for the successful candidate. 

We welcome applications from individuals from both within and outside of the education sector, however it is essential that the successful applicant has a thorough understanding of the unique nature of the independent school sector. The Foundation is proud of its roots and its community, and it will be important for the post holder to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the ethos, vision and culture of the Foundation. 

The position is a permanent, full-time role with an excellent salary and benefits package which includes a generous school fee discount. The Foundation will consider some hybrid working to reflect the nature of the role. 

Due to the nature of the role, regular travel and some evening and weekend work will be expected, and a flexible attitude is required to meet the demands of the position. We are an equal opportunities employer, committed to diversity and inclusion with a policy of treating all employees and job applicants equally.
