You’ll have the chance to increase your experience in a variety of areas, including creating digital content, supporting events, research and analytics, fundraising and managing stakeholders. 

What will I be doing?

As an Administrator, you’ll provide a high level of support to our alumni relations and fundraising activities.

In this diverse role, you’ll help to build long-term, positive relationships with our alumni and encourage their support and participation in school life, be that through attending events, volunteering, donating a gift or leaving a legacy. 

Additionally, you will:
