Durham University is one of the world's most distinctive and distinguished universities with strengths across the Arts and Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences. We are home to some of the most talented scholars and researchers from around the world who are tackling global issues and making a difference to people's lives. The University sits in a beautiful historic city where it shares ownership of a UNESCO World Heritage Site with Durham Cathedral, the greatest Romanesque building in Western Europe. A collegiate University, Durham recruits outstanding students from across the world and offers an unmatched wider student experience.

The Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) at Durham is responsible for coordinating philanthropy, alumni and supporter engagement, and advancement communications on behalf of the University. DARO works with colleges, academic departments, research centres and institutes, wider student experience partners, and professional departments to engage over 180,000 alumni and supporters around the world.

The University is currently embarked on the first phased of a major global philanthropic initiative – the Durham Inspired campaign – which aims to ‘support the next generation of inspiration and leadership’ at Durham. The Campaign is supported by a high-level development board, a growing number of principal benefactors, and key international volunteers. To support the work of the Campaign, DARO is seeking to appoint a Campaign Events Officer who can work with all campaign stakeholders, specifically those in fundraising and alumni relations, to design and deliver a bespoke event programme which supports cultivation and stewardship activities directed at achieving campaign objectives.
