Head of Philanthropy Nottingham Trent University £61,740 - £66,530, dependent upon experience Nottingham Trent University seeks an exceptional major gifts fundraiser for this senior management position. The Head of Philanthropy will be responsible for leading a team of fundraisers to secure philanthropic support for the University’s most critical needs. The postholder will join a successful, confident and innovative university that has recently made significant investments in the delivery of its strategic plan, Creating the University of the Future. At the core of this strategy is the University’s development and alumni relations programme, which is being expanded in the lead up to the University’s 175th Anniversary in 2018 and the planning of a major philanthropic campaign. The Head of Philanthropy will report directly to the Director of Development & Alumni Relations, and will initially line manage three Development Officers. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) was awarded “Modern University of the Year” in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 – the latest in a string of prestigious accolades that give external recognition to its achievements. With its origins dating back to 1843 in the Nottingham Government School of Design, throughout its long history, NTU has remained true to the mission of this School, and has focused on connecting students’ aspirations and employers’ needs. Each year, the University works with around 30,000 students from more than 125 countries, and has links with many businesses and organisations worldwide, which enables it to be in the top ten UK universities for students taking year-long work placements. More than 94% of its students come from state schools and 25% come from households with an income of less than £15,000. NTU is the 13th most popular UK university for undergraduate degree applications, with around five applications for every place available. 96% of our graduates are employed or in further study six months after leaving. Its alumni include CEOs of large global organisations, Turner Prize winners, international film directors, senior lawyers, TV presenters and politicians. This is a career-defining opportunity to create a sector-leading programme, which will drive a step-change in major giving and strategic relationship management across the University. The postholder will play an integral part in developing and implementing the new development and alumni relations strategy, in the context of increased visibility within the University and a supportive and committed leadership team. Candidates will have a successful track record of securing major gifts; outstanding team leadership skills; experience of managing relationships with multiple stakeholders in a complex environment; and a passion and commitment to the aims and objectives of Nottingham Trent University. Strategic thinking, creativity and an innovative approach are all prerequisites. NEXT STEPS For further information, including details of how to apply, please click the 'Apply' button.
