Job Description

Are you a successful volunteering or alumni relations professional looking for your next challenge? Do you have a passion for supporting graduates and enhancing the student experience? Are you looking to develop your career at a prestigious organisation? 

We are looking for a College Alumni Relations Manager to join our team to refine and expand a bold and innovative alumni volunteering programme to support both the priorities of the College of Medical and Dental Sciences and the Development and Alumni Relations Office.  As a DARO business partner for the College, you will be based both within DARO and the College itself. You will join nine other volunteering professionals as part of the wider team and will be responsible for developing a range of volunteering opportunities for alumni, which support the College’s key priorities, and Birmingham 2030 targets, across a diversified curriculum, the student experience, graduate employability, student recruitment, research and influence.  You will be responsible for growing the number of alumni volunteers for the College, reporting on the impact of your work internally and the relationship management of a number of key alumni contacts, with a clear focus on supporting international recruitment for the College. You will work with colleagues across DARO to bring alumni closer to the University to support Philanthropic giving. 

The role of College Alumni Relations Manager is a key position responsible for the development, planning and implementation of a new alumni volunteering strategy for the College, with a focus on International Student Recruitment. We are looking for a motivated team player with the ability to build relationships, project manage, influence and make meaningful activity happen. If you are passionate about connecting people and helping support the employability of students, this is the role for you!

We believe there is no such thing as a typical member of staff and that diversity is a source of strength that underpins the exchange of ideas, innovation, and debate. We warmly welcome people from all backgrounds and are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where diversity is at the heart of who and what we are, and how we work.

Supporting our people to achieve a healthy work/life balance is important both to our employees and to the success of the University and, depending on the role, we offer a variety of flexible working arrangements. We therefore welcome discussions on all forms of flexible working. In addition, you will receive a generous package of benefits including 40 days paid holiday a year, one paid day a year for volunteering, occupational sick pay, and a pension scheme. 

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
