Search for Director of Advancement

Competitive Salary and Benefits

An exciting opportunity to make a substantial difference.

Under new leadership, Brac University is seeking to move well beyond being one of the leading universities in Bangladesh and position itself as one of Asia’s leading international universities. To support this aim, we are seeking a dynamic and experienced individual with the ability to secure funds from high net worth Individuals (HNWI’s) and charitable funders (charities, trusts and foundations) for Brac University. If you haven’t considered Bangladesh in the past, then we urge you to think again. With one of the fastest growing economies in the world, the nation is a modern-day success story. Its rapidly diversifying economy is being powered by a talented and youthful population. Brac University is playing an integral role in the development of skilled graduates for a knowledge-based economy. If you relish the challenge of building effective partnerships with domestic and international stakeholders and would be able to manage fundraising campaigns and oversee gift administration, and prospect research we would like to hear from you.

Although only eighteen years old, Brac University has rapidly established itself as Bangladesh’s leading private university. We now seek to be recognized as a high performing international university by delivering teaching excellence, producing impactful research, and being recognized as a leader in student experience. We are proud to be associated with BRAC, the world’s largest NGO and share its commitment to upholding human values and supporting sustainable development. You will lead BracU’s fundraising and volunteering campaigns and take responsibility for growing its annual philanthropic income (cash and pledges). These important financial contributions will support the delivery of key University’s objectives as well as development of society.

You will ideally have a well-developed understanding of the key drivers of a modern university and be able to articulate how advancement can best support key areas of institutional strategy. This should be supported by demonstrated experience of successfully working with a broad network of colleagues and tangible evidence of putting in place fundraising agreements.

Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work with a diverse group of colleagues and external stakeholders is essential. Experience of undertaking similar previous assignments would be beneficial.
