Associate Head of Philanthropy (Principal Gifts)

This is an exciting time to be joining the Development and Alumni Engagement Team (DAE) at the University of Warwick.

As a team, we have a major role to play in helping break down barriers to education and advancing research addressing some of our planet’s biggest challenges.

Our donor community creates lasting value in society and the economy through supporting students, research and facilities at Warwick.

We’re looking for someone who has a passion for making a difference. You’ll be someone who can connect with global philanthropists to advance some of the most important research and education ambitions in the UK.

The Associate Head of Philanthropy (Principal Gifts) will lead and develop a portfolio of Warwick’s top £1m prospects that will deliver new levels of transformational income for the University.

In this role, you will secure funding for a combination of project-led and donor-led fundraising opportunities, and on the latter, will be capable of convening groups of academics to develop bespoke projects that meet donor’s interests.

This role will require self-awareness, and the capacity for problem-solving through lateral thinking. You will regularly work with senior levels of university leadership and administration and be expected to lead donor meetings where necessary.

You will ensure that all prospects in their portfolio have been screened against the Fundraising Ethics Committee’s six conditions for gift acceptance and are GDPR compliant.

You will also help build the Development Office’s profile by maintaining relationships with senior stakeholders across the university.

This role will require you to work within a hot- desking space within the Development and Alumni Engagement team on campus and has the flexibility for hybrid working.
