Job Vacancy: Alumni and Supporter Relations Manager

2 August 2017

Circa £36,000 per annum, dependent upon experience, plus pension.

The Woolf Institute’s vision is a world in which collaborative discussion and constructive engagement can overcome prejudice and intolerance.  It combines teaching, scholarship and outreach, focussing on Jews, Christians and Muslims, to build tolerance and foster understanding between people of different beliefs around the world.

The Institute has a supporter and alumni base of over 3,000, of which 535 are alumni.  Our supporters include academic visitors, faith leaders, donors and others with an interest in improving relations between people of different beliefs and between religion and society.

Following a successful capital appeal for its new building, the Woolf Institute must build both its research and project grant income and its endowment in order to make the most of the opportunities arising from moving to our new, permanent home and to achieve the Woolf Institute’s vision.

·  successfully run an annual appeal fund and being able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge needed to plan and implement an annual fund strategy;

·  good written and verbal communication skills, across a variety of communications channels.

Full details can be seen in the job description.  If you would like to discuss flexible or 80%+ working arrangements, we are open to discussing such options whilst meeting the requirements of the post. The successful candidate will need to be able to commute easily to Cambridge. Occasional travel outside Cambridge and some out of hours work for events may be required.

Candidates should send their curriculum vitae, with a covering letter to the Director of Development explaining how they meet the role criteria, to arrive no later than 9.15am on Monday 2nd October by email to hec39@cam.ac.uk , or by post to Helen Cornish, Director of Development, Woolf Institute, Madingley Road, Cambridge CB3 0UB.
