Alumni Relations Manager (Professional Development)

Full Time

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,965 to £43,470 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We are not afraid to take risks. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. In September 2016 UCL launched ‘It’s All Academic’, our bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus. It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions.


From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Advancement office. We are a team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals who work together to achieve remarkable things with a global impact, and we would love for you to be part of this exciting journey and our success.


This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As Alumni Relations Manager (Professional Development) you will design and deliver a targeted and collaborative professional development offering to UCL graduates, particularly those from the past 10 years. You will lead the expansion of our award-winning UCL Connect series, and will collaborate with colleagues across UCL to develop new online and offline opportunities to support our graduates, and increase the opportunities for alumni volunteers to share their skills and expertise.


We are happy to consider applications from candidates seeking part-time opportunities.


You will have experience in planning and delivering a professional development programme for alumni, members, students or supporters. A strategic thinker, you will be accustomed to evaluating the programme of activities on offer and identifying new areas or audiences that require future support. With your excellent interpersonal and collaboration skills, you will understand that the key to delivering an outstanding professional development programme lies with building mutually-beneficial relationships across UCL and our global alumni community.


We know that our people are our greatest asset and in return we provide an empowering, values-based environment where personal and professional growth is invested in. We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours. We also value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic.  Expectations are high and we work hard, but the rewards are huge.


UCL is an outstanding place to work. We welcome people from all backgrounds and strive to create an environment where everyone can give of their best. Working with some of the greatest intellects in the world, you will also be entitled to a generous pension scheme and holiday allowance.
