Permanent contract 

We are seeking two driven and analytical people to join our experienced and expanding team, to conduct philanthropy research and reputational due diligence research in a motivating higher education setting. Finding, evaluating, and communicating information clearly and effectively is the essence of this role.

Within the University of Oxford Development Office, our work drives the ambitious fundraising activities of the University, by providing tailored insights to build relationships with new and existing major donors (individuals, corporations and foundations).

We want to hear from candidates who bring successful experience in a research- or information-focused role in business settings such as consultancy, law, banking, professional services, the civil service, or similar; or with experience of research in fundraising.

As well as outstanding research and written communication skills, other qualities sought include a commitment to providing a high-quality service; an ability to assess information rapidly and rigorously from a variety of sources; knowledge of current affairs; attention to detail; an adaptable approach; curiosity and creativity; the desire to work collaboratively and build positive relationships with colleagues in the team and across the wider University.

The role sits in a friendly and dynamic team who can provide training. We support a diverse set of fundraising priorities, on themes ranging from innovative medical and scientific advances, to widening access to our University, to supporting world-class museums. We offer a fulfilling working environment with a wealth of opportunities to develop professional skills.

These are two permanent roles. This is in addition to the fixed term post recently advertised.
