Finance and Donations Coordinator

Do you want to join a high profile, successful alumni engagement and fundraising team within the University? Are you experienced in income and expenditure account management; and do you have a demonstrable understanding of financial principals, systems and procedures, with a strong ethical will to ensure charitable donations are managed in accordance with donor expectations? Are you an analytical thinker with a high degree of initiative and the ability to identify solutions?

The University of Leeds has one of the largest alumni communities in the Russell Group and benefits hugely from the interest, involvement and support of an engaged alumni and donor community. Alumni and other supporters make a significant contribution to the University’s strategic priorities in student education, research and internationalisation through their advocacy and generous gifts of time and money.

To date the University’s ‘Making a World of Difference’ Campaign has raised over £95m, against a £100m target, for a range of projects - from research into how microbubbles can cure cancer to supporting scholarships for students who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to come to University.

As the Finance and Donations Coordinator, within the Alumni & Development team, you will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating all departmental finances including donations management and office expenditure. With a background in finance you will also possess excellent communication, interpersonal and team working skills. You will be highly proactive and self-motivated, with a keen attention to detail and a desire to deliver a high quality service.

The Alumni & Development Office (A&DO) currently has 42 members of staff and an annual budget of £3.5 million.
