Job description

Harris Hill are delighted to be partnering up with the University of Oxford to find them a Senior Development Executive , which will be raising funds for their world-class Physics department.

The Department of Physics is one of the top ten departments in the world. Their academics observe the wonders of the Universe from the very big to the very small: from seeking planets with the potential for life outside the solar system, to undertaking some of the most delicate experiments in quantum physics . Physics has applications in so many fields, including biology and nanotechnology, to find new ways to treat cancer; the development of new materials to generate green energy; and the understanding of climate science, with its impact on the Earth.

Title - Senior Development Executive - Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS)

Location - Remote working 3 days, 2 days in Oxford
Contract - Fixed-term maternity leave cover of up to 14 months
Salary - Grade 8: £42,149 - £50,296 per annum with possible extension to £54,943
Closing - 11th of July 9am
Interviews W/C 18th of July - with second stage interviews happening on the W/C 1st of August.

You will be raising money to support research; to enable students from around the world and from every background to come and study at Oxford; and to help promote the public understanding of Physics. You will work closely with the Head of Physics, as well as some of the most inspiring scientists in the world, and will forge relationships with existing and new donors to the department. While an interest in science is essential, you do not need to be a Physics graduate, just an enthusiast for knowledge.

An experienced development professional with a strong track record of securing major gifts , a confident approach and the ability to think creatively, you will lead on major gift fundraising (£100k-£1m+) working with a range of donors (corporates, trusts and individuals). The department has a well-established alumni programme and a very active and supportive development board that you will work closely with.
