About the role
The School’s leadership team is committed to investing in a much more sustainable and robust philanthropic fundraising program and now seeks a Director of Philanthropy & Community Engagement who, as a member of the School’s leadership team, will drive this new philanthropic agenda forward. The Director will lead and manage all aspects of the School’s philanthropy and community engagement program, both strategically and operationally, with a view to embedding a culture of philanthropy across the School.
The successful candidate will demonstrate experience in developing and implementing effective philanthropic programs, including annual and planned-giving, with a track record in the management of a portfolio of major gift prospects and closure of significant philanthropic gifts. Your visionary leadership style will be matched by your ability to nurture and develop staff in a collaborative manner. Fundamental to success will be an appreciation of the School’s mission and a strong connection with the School’s values which underpin its every facet.
