Fundraising Officer (Community Giving)

My job, in a nutshell, is to support the development of our community giving programs and help deliver the University’s inaugural Gifting Day that is coming up in 2022.

My favourite part of the job is seeing the difference we can make in people’s lives, our work truly has such a meaningful impact.

I’d like to be stuck in a lift with someone who knows how to fix it because I’m very claustrophobic!

One day I’d love to travel again and see the Seven Wonders of the World.
