Ever thought of working at a University?


Aspiring educational fundraisers – exciting Graduate Trainee Scheme opportunity with @CASE_Europe

Are you seeking a stimulating and varied career where you can make a difference to the world? SOAS is taking part in the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) Europe Graduate Trainee Scheme as a host institution for the first time this year, and applications are now open. Recent graduates or soon-to-be graduates may apply for this year-long, paid internship programme.

Working within a world class university, this training programme will launch your career in educational fundraising.  Philanthropy helps researchers to find cures for major diseases; scientists to develop solutions to poverty, inequality and environmental issues; and provides access to a university education to transform lives.

This Scheme has been developed to provide an entry point into a fulfilling career raising money, engagement and support for UK universities. Today the advancement community has never been more needed. With government funding for universities decreasing, institutions must raise more private funds and garner more support in order to continue making a difference to the lives of students, local communities and the benefactors of world-leading research.

Each graduate is recruited to a host university where he or she spends an in-depth year learning on the job. Trainees will work within each area of the university’s development function, including alumni relations, prospect management, annual and regular giving, stewardship, campaigns, major gifts, events and partnerships. The breadth of this experience in a tight timeframe provides graduates with a fully rounded view of fundraising in higher education and its vital supporting operations.

Application closing date 9 March, 6:00 pm.
