The University of Strathclyde’s Alumni and Development team seeks to appoint a Donor Relations Officer to lead an established Donor Relations and Stewardship programme. This is an exciting opportunity to support the University’s ambitious plans for alumni engagement and philanthropic support.

The role-holder will design and implement the donor journey for a range of supporters (grant making bodies, corporate partners, individual supporters and major donors).

You will understand the importance of building strong relationships with donors and the strategies to achieve this. Working with the wider team, you will support stewardship processes, develop donor relationships and report on progress.
