About the organisation

Deakin is Australia’s sixth largest university with an ambition to be Australia’s most progressive university. Their current strategic plan, Deakin 2030: Ideas to Impact demonstrates a commitment to lifelong learning and employability, discovery and creativity, digital capability, social justice, inclusivity and the strength of diversity.

About the role

Deakin’s strategic vision provides the perfect platform for a new age in Advancement work. With a commitment to leveraging strong partnerships, the plan also highlights that the University’s friends, alumni and partners are integral to their success, and that philanthropy must play an increasing role in building the University’s financial resilience. Deakin now seeks a new Director of Development who, as part of Advancement Leadership, will strategically lead the University’s fundraising team, setting and delivering ambitious fundraising targets and goals as well as managing a portfolio of major and principal gift donors.

You will demonstrate experience in leading, managing and developing a high performing team, gained within a higher education organisation or similarly complex environment. This will be coupled with significant experience in major and principal gift fundraising. You will be committed to building and maintaining a sustainable long term strategic philanthropy program in support of Deakin’s optimistic vision for its future and its institutional priorities.
