Imperial College London has a reputation for excellence in teaching and research in engineering, medicine, science and business. Consistently ranked within the top three universities in Europe, and the top ten worldwide, Imperial attracts the very best students, researchers and partners from across the globe.

The Faculty of Medicine Development Team was established in 2014 and is responsible for raising £20M+ in philanthropic funds annually. The team works closely with the Dean of the Faculty and other senior academics and clinicians, and many colleagues across the (90 staff) Advancement Team to raise funds from alumni, friends and grateful patients.

As a senior member of the Development team and under the leadership of the Director of Development for the Faculty of Medicine, you will be responsible for expanding the ambitious fundraising strategy for Imperial College London’s Principal-level (£1m+) prospects. Funding will be sought for Capital Projects, Endowed Positions, Scholarships, Academic Institutes and Centres.

You will articulate the case for support in compelling language and will work with colleagues to develop appropriate marketing materials that express the excitement of these important projects. With a strong track record of successful leadership and consistently meeting fundraising targets, you will work closely with the Director of Development and other senior staffs to determine priorities, identify and define funding opportunities, and develop engagement strategies.

You will come with extensive knowledge of UK-based philanthropic individuals, and those who maintain personal trusts and foundations with a particular focus on medical philanthropy. Substantial experience in institutional advancement (or a related field) with a strong track record of raising six and seven figure funds in the higher education or medical sector in a top branded, complex, fast moving environment will be key. You will be politically astute with a tactful and diplomatic communication style, be skilled at building relationships and strategically minded to ensure the most effective processes, practices and techniques are in place to deliver results.

Are you a strategic thinker and someone who can work creatively to build a robust pool of prospects and a list of strategic initiatives for funding? Are you politically astute with a tactful and diplomatic communication style, skilled at building relationships?  If so, we would like to hear from you!
