Current vacancies

Development Manager (Major Gifts)
Ref. 50060207

Salary: £41,715 per annum (Incl. LWA)

Department: Marketing and Communications

Location: Central London

This post is full time, 35 hours per week and is fixed term until 1 June 2023.

This opportunity comes at an exciting time in the University of Westminster’s story, with the Development Team being placed at the epicentre of the institution’s major capital renovation - the redevelopment of 29 Marylebone Road: The UK’s most inclusive centre for collaborative enterprise and innovation. 

The centre will have a particular focus on inclusive enterprise, attracting and developing budding entrepreneurs who come from some of London’s most diverse communities. 

Our vision is to transform this 10-storey building into a reimagined collaborative workspace, fit for a post-COVID world. It will be an attractive space which brings together diverse entrepreneurial talent, encouraging and developing raw start-ups and social enterprises through dynamic interaction with London-based business expertise. 

As the first London University to be granted a Social Enterprise Gold Mark, we want this building to act as a physical embodiment of business for social good, upskilling community organisations to maximize their impact and catalysing the regeneration of the capital as it recovers from COVID-19's devastating impact. 

This renovation is intended to provide opportunities in abundance: for current students needing access to employability programmes in a challenging job market; for graduates seeking to develop their skillsets as they take their entrepreneurial concepts into the UK market and beyond; and for developed businesses who want to access services, training and the wide array of student talent available at Westminster. The continued engagement with business and industry will be essential to developing our approach to reskilling London’s young people.

The building is expected to open in Autumn 2023, and now we are in a position to welcome an individual who is motivated to work with the Head of Development and Fundraising to manage the project’s prospect pipeline and the solicitation of major gift-level donations to help raise the funds required to achieve our vision. 

The role will also cover the securing of funds for the multiple activities and programmes that will be offered within the space and build relationships with significant individual and corporate prospects to achieve this.
Reporting into the Head of Development and Fundraising, the successful candidate will also support other Development-related tasks, being able to fit in with a small, but agile, team that prides itself on teamwork.
