Join our team!

Thank you for your interest in joining Newcastle University Advancement

We are the driving force behind philanthropy and alumni engagement across our global community of students, graduates and supporters.

Who we are

Our mission is to build a spirit of giving and volunteering that is owned, lived and breathed across the University, and to support and connect our global community of 250,000 Newcastle graduates.  

Our work is all about joining the dots. Every day we make links between donors and volunteers and the causes they feel passionately about. We connect experienced alumni with recent graduates in need of advice and we connect our students and our academics with people around the world who know and love Newcastle University. 

This is an exciting time to join our team. We will be launching Newcastle’s first global fundraising campaign 'From Newcastle. For the World' in early 2022 and we are expanding our team to take on this challenge.  

We all come from different backgrounds and careers. But we are united in a simple desire to make the world a better place through education, innovation, and positive social change. We are looking for people who share our commitment to change the world for the better and who can demonstrate the core values that define the character of our team:  

  • Ambitious and Future Focussed
  • Professional and Approachable
  • Caring and Dedicated

We will be continuing to offer a range of new positions as we grow our team. If this excites you, and you would like to find out more, please get in touch or join one of our regular online drop-in sessions
