The University is working toward completion of its £100m 600th Anniversary fundraising campaign, which has provided a focus for a range of fundraising projects and high profile events and activities designed to engage and cultivate the alumni and supporter audience. The Development Officer (Research) will provide leadership in the planning and delivery of all prospect management activities in support of the University’s philanthropic ambitions through the Anniversary Campaign and beyond.
We are seeking an individual to work closely with colleagues in our fundraising, events and database teams to identify and provide high quality information on prospective donors and supporters for cultivation events and briefings in advance of meetings. The successful applicant will be expected to use a number of research tools to identify prospective new donors, including undertaking research into individual and trust / corporate supporters in the UK, USA and across the world.
This is a challenging role which will require a very good understanding of the principles of prospect / business research. Strong administrative, communication, database interrogation and IT skills are essential, along with careful attention to detail and discretion in handling confidential material. A flexible approach and the ability to work in a team environment, whilst also being comfortable working with a minimum of supervision are required. The successful applicant will be expected to take considerable daily responsibility for decision-making and the line management of the two Development Assistants (Research).
The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall). More details can be found at http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.
