King's College

A. J. Ganesh, B.Tech., Madras, Ph.D., Cornell, has been elected a Non-stipendiary Fellow attached to the Research Centre for two years from 1 October 2000.


King's College seeks to appoint a full-time administrator to manage the work of the Development Office. This office is responsible for maintaining relations with Non-Resident Members (alumni) and major donors, and for fundraising.

The successful candidate will report to the Head of Development (a senior Fellow), and work alongside the Development Director (a professional development executive). The Development Co-ordinator will be a senior member of the team handling development work at King's and will be expected to be actively involved in planning how this work is to be carried out and managed. He or she will be responsible for co-ordinating all activity of the Development Office, for reporting regularly on the status of work to colleagues and to the Development Committee, for managing events, for record keeping of donations, and for managing correspondence, contacts, and records of donations. He or she will manage the work of the Database Manager and the Events Co-ordinator - both of whom work part of their time for the Development Office.

The job involves direct contact with a wide range of people of different styles, from within the College (including the Provost, First Bursar, and students), amongst the Non-Resident Members, and in the world at large. The College successfully uses students to help maintain contacts with Non-Resident Members, and the Development Co-ordinator will be expected to help in encouraging student participation.

The successful candidate will have an outgoing personality and the ability and willingness to turn his or her hand to anything. A strong interest in the field of development in the educational world is important. The Development Co-ordinator will be expected to absorb the ethos of King's, to work within it, and to promote and explain this to outside parties.

A thorough knowledge of Microsoft Office applications is essential and a good working knowledge of databases (e.g. Raiser's Edge) would be an advantage.

The salary will be up to £22,000, depending on experience and ability, and there is a pension scheme.

For further details apply to Dr Tess Adkins, Head of Development, King's College, Cambridge, CB2 1ST (tel. 01223 331231, e-mail tsa11@cam.ac.uk). The closing date for applications is Friday, 4 August 2000, with interviews during the week beginning Monday, 7 August 2000.
