Role Description

We are looking for a well-organised, enthusiastic and proactive individual, with strong writing and communication skills, to help us provide scholarships to students and build lasting relationships with those who give to the University.

This new 4 days/week role of Stewardship Administrator is now available in the Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni (OPPA), which is responsible for fundraising and alumni relations at the University of York.

As Stewardship Administrator, you will provide support to a programme of stewardship, which manages relationships with donors and student scholars and promotes the impact of charitable giving. The primary focus of your role will be scholarships funded by alumni and friends of the University. You will have regular contact with students who apply for or receive scholarship funds, so the ability to communicate positively and persuasively with students as well as colleagues across the University will be essential. You will also provide administrative support to the wider stewardship programme, including organising annual events for scholars and for donors.

You will have excellent writing skills, enabling you to write biographies of attendees to OPPA events, edit students’ scholarship reports, and occasionally write articles for OPPA publications. Good numeracy and IT skills will also be essential. You will be an effective administrator with strong organisation skills and a genuine desire to help others – both students and your University colleagues.

The Stewardship Administrator role is offered on a fixed-term contract until 31 December 2018. For an informal discussion, please contact Chris Barnes, Information and Philanthropy Operations Manager:  +44 (0)1904 322099.

Closing date: 30 July 2017

Interview date: 9 August 2017
