Are you an experienced gift administrator looking to make a strategic impact? Do you put the donor at the heart of all you do? Are you interested in being part of the team scoping and planning a significant fundraising campaign?


The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning and research in the world, Founded in 1895, LSE counts 18 Nobel prize winners among its alumni and staff.


Join us as we enter an exciting period for philanthropy and global engagement. We have a dynamic and high-profile Director, Dame Minouche Shafik; a new strategy, LSE 2030, to provide direction for our engagement efforts; an ambitious campaign in the planning stages; and a growing, talented team.


We are looking for an experienced Gift Administration Manager to lead and develop the programme during a period of maternity leave. This role is responsible for the acceptance, accounting and administration of all gifts to LSE and, in doing so, the provision of a world-class experience to our donors.

You will have experience of managing gift administration in a large complex organisation, up-to-date and thorough knowledge of fundraising, acceptance policies and both national and international tax-efficient giving. You will also have the ability to deal with a wide range of stakeholders, including high level donors and their representatives, understanding their needs and motivations.
