Job description

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced fundraiser to play a pivotal role in the management and strategy of Bradfield College’s ‘Be Involved’ fundraising initiative.

The launch of the ‘Be Involved’ initiative in 2021 has proven extremely successful in driving engagement with our parents, both former and current, our alumni and our friends in the community, including former staff.

As Head of Fundraising, you will build on the success of the ‘Be Involved’ campaign and lead fundraising projects by opening conversations, building positive relationships and soliciting donations.

This role will not require a new strategic framework or extensive research – much of that work has been done; this role is focussed on maximising the potential from the community. 

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • The management and strategy of the prospect pipeline
  • Managing a portfolio of senior gift prospects, providing tailored solutions and ongoing updates
  • Managing the solicitation and stewardship of major donations to assist the College’s ambitious development initiatives
  • Attending key College events, both nationally and internationally, to build positive and productive relationships with potential donors

To be considered for this role you will need considerable experience as a major gifts fundraiser with a successful record of soliciting donations from high net-worth individuals. Proven experience of developing and implementing innovative fundraising methodologies is equally important.

You will also need experience of managing, mentoring and coaching teams.

In return, Bradfield College offer a variety of benefits, such as: 

  • Free meal during the working day provided when College kitchens are open
  • Subsidised membership of the Sports Complex
  • Subsidised membership of the College Golf Club
  • Contributory Pension Scheme
