Cranfield is an exclusively postgraduate university that is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management, with close links to industry and business and an active and influential network of alumni and friends around the globe.
In this role, you will be in the privileged position of helping us to build relationships with some of the most prominent and influential individuals within our community.

You will analyse data to develop and refine our regular giving strategy and oversee the processing, recording and acknowledgement of regular gifts. You will work closely with the Development Managers to coordinate activity around high net worth alumni and to maximize opportunities to develop the major gift pipeline through the regular giving programme.
You will be positive, enthusiastic and creative, with experience of developing strategy and delivering results against targets in a similar fundraising or sales and marketing environment. Educated to degree level or equivalent experience, you will be able to influence people at the highest level and will have experience of creating and managing multi-channel fundraising or marketing campaigns. You will have excellent written and verbal communication skills with an ability to analyse and interpret data to inform strategy.
