Associate Director of Development

Kingswood School in Bath is looking to appoint a proactive and passionate fundraising professional to lead Kingswood Foundation’s Development.

Reporting to the Director of External Relations, the Associate Director of Development role will play a critical role in building on our 275th Anniversary campaign as we move into the next exciting phase of development. The postholder will engage with key stakeholders, both internally and externally, to secure, enhance and develop the Foundation’s philanthropic networks and reputation, and to act as an ambassador and spokesperson for the Foundation. This is a senior fundraising position, and the role will include strategic planning, the execution of our new programmes, building and enhancing relationships with our community, and communicating our vision and plans as we meet our ambitious future targets.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced development professional committed to the transformative power of philanthropy within an educational setting. Previous experience of working in major gift fundraising is essential as is knowledge and expertise in effective stakeholder engagement.

It is anticipated that this will be a full-time role, throughout the year, although other work patterns will be considered. It is expected that some weekend and evening work will be required as an integral part of the role and there may be future opportunities for international travel.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, and a supportive and exciting educational environment in which colleagues can develop and thrive.
