Job description

Opportunities to join one of the UK’s leading school development teams.

Be part of a challenging and exciting department and help develop Eton’s fundraising capabilities.

The Eton College of the 21st century is focused on the future while valuing its heritage. Today’s school is a progressive and increasingly diverse community. Inclusivity, individual student development and innovation in teaching and learning are our guiding principles.

The school is currently in the last year of its strategic plan published in 2017 and is about to embark upon the process of planning for the next five years. This will set the priorities for the Development Office through to 2027. Thereafter, as Eton looks forward to its 600th anniversary, the Development team will be working to support several ambitious and exciting capital projects.

The Development team at Eton is in a period of exciting growth as the College seeks to build a sector-leading team. Following the recent appointment of a Head of Development who will join the team next term, the College now seeks to make further fundraising appointments as part of a rapid expansion of Eton’s development and fundraising capabilities.  

We are interested in hearing from experienced, specialist fundraisers who will bring sector leading fundraising methodology, as well as those who can demonstrate their talent and ambition but who may be newer to the development world. You may already be a highly experienced major gifts or annual giving practitioner or still be augmenting your fundraising skills - either way your talents and passion for fundraising will be supported and nurtured.

Your track record of fundraising across Major Gifts, Annual Giving and/or Leadership Gifts will be testament to your talent, and you will be excited to join an institution with a high-achieving and reflective academic culture. Exacting standards and high attention to detail, will be complemented by your ability confidence, initiative, drive and flexibility.

In return, you will enjoy:

  • An outstanding working environment – easily commutable from London
  • Sector-leading benefits package
  • Investment in your professional development and considerable growth opportunities
  • Flexible working arrangements will be considered
