We are seeking a talented development professional to raise funds for lifelong learning at Oxford University.

You will be an experienced and effective development professional, with a confident, creative approach to development, and a passion for continuous and lifelong learning to advance knowledge and to ensure individuals reach their full potential, regardless of their background or stage in life. A graduate or equivalent, higher education or not-for-profit experience would be helpful. You will have excellent communication skills and a strong personal drive and gift for relationship management, working to clear fundraising goals.
