The University of Oxford is one of Europe’s most innovative and entrepreneurial universities, which enjoys an international reputation as a world-class centre of excellence in research and teaching.

The Department of Computer Science is home to a community of world-class research and teaching. Established in 1957, now one of the world’s leading Computer Science Departments, with close links with government and industry. We are currently in the early stages of a Departmental campaign strategy to obtain funding for a new Computer Science building and to develop funds to support graduate studies in the department.

We seek to appoint a Development and Alumni Manager, with experience in managing philanthropic relationships with high net worth individuals, charitable organisations and industrial partners.  The post-holder will report to the Head of Department and collaborate closely with the Chair of the Development Committee, with responsibility for establishing strong relationships with the University Development Office, building and managing an extensive portfolio of major gift prospects and fostering relationships with the department’s alumni community.

To be successful in this role you will be an experienced fundraiser with an impressive track record (in the UK and/or internationally) and able to demonstrate the ability to promote the discipline of computer science in all its variety. A graduate or equivalent, you will be tenacious, ambitious and self reliant, but also adept at working collegially and developing excellent relationships with senior University officers, academics and your development colleagues.  

If you would then like to have an informal conversation about the role you can contact Sarah Engerer on 07772 909437 or Brigitte Stundner on 07807 014772.
