Over the past six months we in the Development and Alumni Office have reviewed our existing programme for mass fundraising and, with advice from Rosie Dale of More Partners, have developed an exciting plan to diversify our channels for asking, increase donor participation and raise more income to support education at Goldsmiths.
We are seeking a confident and experienced data-driven fundraiser or marketer to lead the implementation of the plan (to be supported by two new roles that you will manage: a Regular Giving and Alumni Communications Officer and a Crowdfunding Assistant).
Your data-driven approach will inform strategy to acquire new donors and retain existing donors – whether that is through telethon fundraising, direct mail or digital. Your outstanding communication, diplomacy and planning skills will be deployed to explore the development of a new crowdfunding platform with the Students’ Union.
You will also be a skilled manager, able to inspire and direct your team members to implement the vision and plan, mitigating any issues and ensuring that goals and targets are measured and met.
The Development and Alumni Office is on a journey to transform the role of philanthropy at Goldsmiths. This was kick-started by a major fundraising campaign completed in 2018 to build a new art gallery, Goldsmiths CCA, and will be consolidated in our work with our new Warden (vice-chancellor), Professor Frances Corner OBE, who is fully committed to fundraising. In addition, we have just developed a robust Alumni Strategy to ensure alumni support (both volunteer and philanthropic) is mobilised for key institutional priorities; and have undertaken a College-wide consultation to develop a new Goldsmiths case for philanthropic support.
Overhauling our regular giving programme will contribute to this transformation; the post-holder who drives this forward will have a major impact on our fundraising and therefore on the many beneficiaries whose lives are transformed by Goldsmiths.
For an informal conversation to find out more about the role and the context at Goldsmiths, please get in touch with Alison Woolley, Director of Development & Alumni Relations, on +44 (0)7595 062 744.
