Are you a fundraiser who would like to learn and grow on a major gifts team? We’re looking for a Development Officer to join our Campus Initiatives and Awards team, where ambition and collaboration lead to more than $30M raised every year for student awards. Help us reach our goal of raising $100 million in student support over three years as part of UBC’s Blue & Gold Campaign for Students.

UBC students are each uniquely talented, but not all have the same opportunities. Every year there are more than 2,000 outstanding students at UBC who otherwise might not be here without the help of donors. Through the generosity of alumni, donors and community partners, UBC is invested in building the leaders of tomorrow with our student award programs.

The Development Officer, Campus Initiatives and Awards is responsible for administering comprehensive fundraising programs identifying, cultivating, soliciting, and stewarding major gift prospects and donors to raise an average minimum of $.75-1.5M annually; and responsible for supporting development related activities of senior university administration by managing complex relationships with multi-unit stakeholders.

The successful applicant will have:

  • A minimum of three years of fundraising experience
  • Knowledge of the university environment and academic structure or experience working in a similarly complex organizational structure
  • The ability to work independently while exercising good judgement at all times
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Outstanding organizational skills and attention to detail

If you are driven and tenacious, strategic and authentic, a generous team player and natural collaborator we want to help you advance your career on our team of like-minded fundraisers.
