Job description

The Legacy Officer role is your opportunity to join our excellent team at an exciting time. You will be passionate about progressing your career and understand the impact that the University’s teaching and research has on the world. This is a time of significant investment for our individual giving programme with three posts currently being recruited across legacy and regular giving with ambitions to grow income from both these streams. You will have enthusiasm for working in a higher education fundraising environment and to help grow our legacy and in-memoriam giving programme significantly in the coming years.

You will work with our Legacy and Endowment Manager to generate new gifts to the University and to care for our existing donors. You will require a broad skillset to take on a varied role, encouraging donors at all levels by utilising both mass communication and personal relationship building techniques.

We are an ambitious and successful research-intensive University (one of the top 100 research-led universities globally) and have produced 10 Nobel Prize winners, including three who received their awards in 2016.  Academics here are tackling some of the world’s most pressing global challenges such as antibody testing and Covid-19, the impact of climate change on our woodlands and forests, issues caused by migration and displacement, the rise in youth mental health issues, and the prevention of needless maternal deaths in the developing world. Our students come from nearly 150 countries and our flagship outreach programmes mean that almost 25% of our student population come from disadvantaged backgrounds, one of the highest proportions in the UK. Philanthropy has always played an important role in shaping the University, most recently in 2015 when we closed the Circles of Influence Campaign, which raised £193 million, making it the largest HE fundraising campaign outside Oxbridge and London. Through the ‘Birmingham In Action’ campaign, philanthropy will continue to play a vital role in delivering projects to change lives locally, nationally, and internationally.

As an office, we are committed to sustainability and value green working practices. The environment is an integral part of our campaign and we encourage eco-friendly ways of working in order to have a positive impact on our campus and global surroundings.

Interviews are currently scheduled to take place week commencing 28 February 2022.

We are committed to supporting hybrid working and look forward to receiving your application.
