Full Time, Permanent


£33,966 - £44,263 per annum

About the Role

Two positions available: Volunteers Officer (International) and Volunteers Officer (Warwickgrad)

The University of Warwick is looking for two talented Volunteers Officers to join their growing Development and Alumni Engagement (DAE) department.

As Volunteers Officer (International), you will develop a coordinated approach to grow and diversify our global volunteering programme, with the potential for some international travel. You will champion our international ambassadors programme, supporting groups and networks through 121 relationships and large-scale engagement.

As Volunteers Officer (Warwickgrad), you will grow our virtual community platform as a valuable tool for our alumni and supporter community and our team. This will include developing and fostering groups shaped around personal and professional development (across sectors, careers and demography).

Warwick is firmly established within the top ten of all UK university rankings and is #64 in the QS Global World Rankings 2023. We’re rightly proud of our diverse alumni and supporter community, who are both our largest stakeholder group, and the most far-reaching expression of our global reputation.

We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.

About You

These new roles would suit dynamic and experienced volunteer, donor relations or alumni engagement professionals, who are ready to shape volunteer programmes that channel the energies and passions of our vibrant global community in support of the University’s strategy.

These roles will each play a pivotal role within a programme that generates engagement, supports long-term relationships and motivates volunteers, so experience of purposefully-driven engagement on a global scale will be key. You will bring experience in relationship management, programme development, communications and/or events, and skills you’ve grown through roles in alumni/stakeholder engagement, business development, community partnerships, or membership organisations.

You’ll understand how to work with colleagues in our faculties and key departments to grow alumni and supporter networks, and be comfortable liaising with and influencing a range of stakeholders including senior leaders.

You’ll be part of a new Volunteers team, led by our Volunteers Manager and growing in time to include four officers. And you will thrive on demonstrating our team behaviours every day:

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: We are ambitious to make a difference

COLLABORATION: We collaborate to achieve together

SOLUTION FOCUSSED: We are accountable for creating solutions

PASSION FOR LEARNING: We learn from our best performances

About the Department
