About the role
As a result of a recent internal promotion we are looking for an experienced fundraiser to join our growing team as we approach our 50th Anniversary.
The Queensland College of Art, Griffith University (QCA) including the Griffith University Art Museum and the Griffith Film School has been a leading Art College in Australia for over a century, influencing generations of artists and designers.
The QCA continues to invest in our students, providing world class facilities and employing leading artists, educators and researchers. We believe that the next generation of artists deserves the opportunity to study their craft at the highest level possible.
In addition to our role as an educational and research institution, the QCA is a vital contributor to the arts community and events program in South East Queensland. This position will be integral to further building the philanthropic support for the best creative arts and education programs in the country (as rated in the latest Uni Reviews rankings).
This is a fixed term (2-year) full time position, based at our South Bank and Nathan campuses.
We are looking for an experienced fundraiser (preferably with university or visual arts/film or education experience). Someone who is used to working to targets, is driven by outcomes, has excellent people and communication skills and is client focussed.
You will enjoy working on our Nathan and Southbank campuses with a team of university Development Managers, reporting to the Director of Development and Alumni but integrated within a group of world-class researchers in the visual arts, film and education. You will engage with prospects and donors at a local, regional, national and international level.
If you want to be part of this exciting environment, aspire to use your fundraising or sales and relationship management skills to make a difference to this world and would like to join a remarkable university that is less than 50 years young, we ask that you consider this role.
