This is a time of significant investment for our individual giving programme with three posts currently being recruited across legacy and regular giving, with ambitions to grow income from both these streams. The Regular Giving Manager role is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a dynamic and innovative team and to take our programme to the next level, particularly in the digital space. 

Working to annual targets, you will report directly to the Deputy Director Engagement for our regular giving programme, including managing telephone appeals and direct mail, as well as email and digital giving platforms. In collaboration with other members of DARO and external consultants you will grow the programme, creating a sustainable, long-term income that can support critical educational and research fundraising projects, and the strategic priorities of the University.  

We are an ambitious and successful research-intensive University (one of the top 100 research-led universities globally) and have produced 10 Nobel Prize winners, including three who received their awards in 2016.  Academics here are tackling some of the world’s most pressing global challenges such as antibody testing and Covid-19, the impact of climate change on our woodlands and forests, issues caused by migration and displacement, the rise in youth mental health issues, and the prevention of needless maternal deaths in the developing world. Our students come from nearly 150 countries and our flagship outreach programmes mean that almost 25% of our student population come from disadvantaged backgrounds, one of the highest proportions in the UK. Philanthropy has always played an important role in shaping the University, most recently in 2015 when we closed the Circles of Influence Campaign, which raised £193 million, making it the largest HE fundraising campaign outside Oxbridge and London. Through the ‘Birmingham In Action’ campaign, philanthropy will continue to play a vital role in delivering projects to change lives locally, nationally, and internationally. 

Interviews are currently scheduled to take place week commencing 21st February.

We are committed to supporting hybrid working and look forward to receiving your application.
