Development Officer

We are looking for someone who shares our passion to transform lives by expanding access to an education at one of the top girls’ schools in the country. LEH is offering a brilliant opportunity for an enthusiastic, results-driven, team player to become our Development Officer. You will support LEH’s fundraising goals and help us achieve our ambition of increasing the number of pupils we can support though our Bursary Fund. 

Working as part of a dynamic and supportive team, this hands-on role involves planning and delivering a varied programme of fundraising activities in support of our strategic goal to build engagement with key audiences and maximise income. This will involve working across a wide range of fundraising campaigns and appeals, from virtual giving days, balls and events to regular giving and relationship fundraising, ensuring that all deadlines and targets are met.

The ideal candidate will have experience of fundraising and of working with and managing data, along with strong organisational skills and a good eye for detail. There is plenty of opportunity to be creative and innovative. An enthusiastic, flexible and can-do attitude and excellent interpersonal skills are essential, as is the ability to work as part of a busy, committed and ambitious team. The role is part-time and term-time plus two weeks, therefore offering an excellent work-life balance.

What we offer:
LEH is a thriving school situated on a 24-acre site west of London. It has a vibrant and diverse community, and LEH students are renowned for their academic prowess as well as their success across an extraordinarily wide range of co-curricular activities, including sport, music, and drama.

We have state-of-the-art facilities, and we encourage staff to make the most of the school’s swimming pool, tennis courts, free lunches, on-site parking, and library services.

A list of our attractive range of benefits can be found here.

CVs will not be considered and should not be submitted.

Safeguarding Statement:
All staff working in the School will have some contact with children and will therefore be in regulated activity.  Staff with teaching duties will be responsible for the pupils that they teach and may also have additional specific pastoral or other responsibilities for other pupils they do not teach.   In addition, all staff will regularly interact with pupils who may seek assistance or otherwise interact with them whilst moving around the School.  In all cases, the post holder’s responsibility for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of the pupils is to adhere to and ensure compliance with the School’s safeguarding policies and procedures at all times.
The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
Lady Eleanor Holles is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
