Senior Development Research Officer


£32,816 - £40,322 per annum (depending on experience)

Ref: PSX-016935

Are you a curious and creative researcher looking for a new role where you can use your skills to help to raise funds for projects that change the world? How would you like to join one of the UK’s most successful university fundraising teams?

At the University of Manchester, we’re looking for a new Senior Development Research Officer to join our team. If you’re an enthusiastic researcher ready for your next step, we’d love to hear from you.

In the role you will be accountable for the provision of accurate and appropriate information relating to potential donors to the University, individuals, corporations and charitable foundations worldwide.  Working with colleagues, you will contribute to the identification and analysis of potential new donors to support the University’s development strategy.

The ideal candidate will be comfortable working with fundraisers to help develop relationships with potential new donors and to suggest ways to reach and engage donors. In doing so, you’ll play an important part in raising funds to enable a broad range of initiatives – like student scholarships, world class research and our Cultural Institutions.  You will play a crucial part in providing due diligence research to ensure ethical acceptance of gifts, and you will have responsibility for managing and coordinating the work of a small team of two Development Research Officers.

With a background in people-centric open-source research, you will be highly focused, with a keen attention to detail and outstanding written and oral communication skills. Your well-honed ability to link data will be key, and you should have the drive to acquire, manage and pass on knowledge to support our fundraising and alumni relations professionals.

You’ll join a friendly and high-performing Division, full of people who care deeply about what they do.  Your work will have a direct, high-impact contribution to the University’s goals to provide life-changing student support and to fund groundbreaking research.

Blended working arrangements may be considered.
