The Director of Development, Faculty of Law is responsible for developing a broad range of fundraising strategies, building towards a major gift portfolio and a large-scale campaign for the Faculty of Law.

As a dual-reporting appointment, the Director of Development will report to the Vice-President Advancement and the Dean, Faculty of Law. The Vice-President Advancement will oversee prospect management, fundraising activity, and reporting, while the Dean, Faculty of Law will set funding priorities, cooperatively work with prospects and provide ongoing guidance.  In consultation with the Vice-President and the Dean, the Director of Development will plan, expand, and implement activities and initiatives to meet established fundraising goals.  As well, it is expected that the Director will take an active role and will have an active presence at all the Faculty’s events.

The Director’s position has a high degree of visibility with respect to both the university and the business community (locally and globally). The Director represents the Faculty of Law to all stakeholders in a professional manner and in a very competitive marketplace – driving and leading alumni and friends and community fundraising for the Faculty of Law. The Director will strategically manage the fundraising work and ensure its continued development to meet established fundraising goals.

This is an exciting opportunity to live in Kamloops, a community with spectacular outdoor recreational opportunities, and to make a mark on a university and faculty that is evolving and growing.
