The University's fundraising activity and alumni engagement is undertaken from the Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO).

  • the ability to interact effectively and quickly gain credibility with a wide variety of individuals, groups and organisations;
  • demonstrated analytical and problem solving skills and attention to detail.
  • the ability to maintain confidentiality is a must for this role, as well as the ability to demonstrate an international outlook and sensitivity for cultural differences.

There is a requirement to work outside normal office hours, e.g. evening work to attend University and Development Office events.

Further Details

This is a permanent, full-time position.

We offer competitive salary, five weeks' annual leave, a 6.75% superannuation scheme, and the ability to achieve real work/life balance.
