Role Description

Are you a change-driven and collaborative individual with an interest in facilitating successful partnerships with trusts, foundations and corporate philanthropists? If so, the Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni at the University of York would love to hear from you.

We are seeking a dynamic, driven and experienced fundraiser to join a dedicated and talented team working with a community of global donors including individual philanthropists, family trusts, foundations and corporates, and a global alumni community. As the Head of Foundation and Corporate Philanthropy, you will lead and inspire a team in order to build lasting partnerships which seek to tackle inequalities, to find new ways for research to help society, and to help every student to succeed.

The post requires two or more years in an equivalent fundraising position and a proven track record of developing corporate, trust and foundation partnerships to secure transformational philanthropic donations.

The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community  – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
