The Australian National University (ANU) is one of the world’s foremost research universities. Distinguished by a relentless pursuit of excellence, it attracts leading academics and outstanding students from Australia and around the world. Ranked amongst the top universities globally, ANU is charting a new strategic course to redefine the role of a contemporary national university. Located in the nation’s capital, ANU is renowned for the quality of its research, the excellence of its teaching, and its ongoing contribution to public life.

The recent development of the ANU Institutional Case for Support and focus on thematic giving has created momentum and energy across the University community for philanthropy, alumni engagement and advancement. Complemented by the development of an educational advancement program for the University, we have created a philanthropic culture that is embedded into ANU as we seek to build in this space. Given our unique nature as the National University, we are able to connect with alumni, donors, friends and those previously unaffiliated with the University, but excited by its vision, energy and commitment to improving the world through education, research and innovation.

We are now seeking multiple advancement leaders, to take up the role of Head of Advancement, within the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences; ANU College of Asia and the Pacific; ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science; ANU College of Business and Economics and supporting the ANU Innovation Institutes. Our successful candidates will be responsible for building, coordinating and executing strong donor engagement plans to support University priorities, primarily through major gifts fundraising. You will be a seasoned development leader who can substantially contribute to the strategic growth, management and culture of the Advancement team and the University.
