Philanthropy Operations Manager, full time - open to flexibility
UCL is London’s Global University. We do things differently here and we take the long view. We are not afraid to take risks. We remain focused on making a major contribution to the long term benefit of humanity. In September 2016 UCL launched ‘It’s All Academic’, our bold new global Philanthropy and Engagement Campaign to raise £600m to support students, research and the transformation of our campus (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/campaign/). It will enable us to achieve more than ever before to secure our position as one of the world’s top higher education institutions. At the end of June 2018 we are delighted to have raised more than £436m towards our target.
From fighting dementia to ensuring generations of students reach their full potential: It's All Academic. UCL’s ideas and discoveries are shaping the future, improving lives and having a massive impact on London and the wider world. There has never been a more exciting time to join our Development office. We are a team of exceptionally ambitious, creative and passionate individuals who work together to achieve remarkable things with a global impact, and we would love for you to be part of this exciting journey and our success.
This is your chance to play a pivotal role in delivering our Campaign. As Philanthropy Operations Manager you will support and coordinate the delivery of the UCL’s fundraising strategy by providing proactive and comprehensive operational support to the Deputy Director of Development and the Strategic Philanthropy team.
You will have demonstrable experience as a lead coordinator or project coordinator, with excellent organisational and communication skills. With confidence in planning and prioritising, you will also have the ability to build strong working relationships across diverse groups of stakeholders. You will play a central role in this fast-paced office and will need to be pro-active and often need to work under your own initiative.
We know that our people are our greatest asset and in return we provide an empowering, values-based environment where personal and professional growth is invested in. We offer agile working and flexibility around working hours – this role could be part-time (minimum 0.8 FTE, 4 days per week) or a job share. We also value mutual respect and collaboration, and have a strong customer-service ethic. Expectations are high and we work hard, but the rewards are huge.
UCL is an outstanding place to work. We welcome people from all backgrounds and strive to create an environment where everyone can give of their best. Working with some of the greatest intellects in the world, you will also be entitled to a generous pension scheme and holiday allowance.
