Full Time, Fixed Term
Closing Date:  Sunday 14 March 2021

Full-Time, Fixed-Term (Maternity Cover until May 2022) 

Salary in range of £33,797 - £40,322 per annum pro rata. London Allowance of £2,134 will be payable in addition to salary.

Applications are invited for the post of Alumni Relations Manager within the External Relationships group, part of the university’s directorate of Marketing and Communications. This position is available from the end of May 2021 due to maternity leave.  

Working closely with the Assistant Director, External Relationships, the post-holder will manage the delivery of a strategy to increase the engagement of alumni in the life of the College.  By leading activities that engage alumni, the post holder will ensure that academic and administrative colleagues are able to maintain strong connections with graduates, in order to unlock contributions that support the university’s strategic objectives. 

The diverse needs and interests of the university’s alumni community requires a complex approach, involving formal associations, events (currently online), as well as printed and online communication channels and the delivery of specific services to alumni.

You will have a successful track record in communications and a good understanding of alumni relations, volunteer management and philanthropy. A positive and flexible approach to work, the ability to analyse and understand data, organisational and project management skills and the tact and communication skills to build strong relationships with alumni and associated stakeholders are all essential.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking 

The post is home based at present, but it is anticipated that during the term of the appointment the postholder will work from the university’ campus in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated and within commuting distance from London. 

This is a fixed term post to cover a period of maternity leave until May 2022. This appointment could end earlier than expected should the substantive post-holder return to work early.

Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
