Assiniboine Community College strives to create exceptional learning experiences for our students while strengthening Manitoba through applied education and research. The College Advancement & External Relations Department has two opportunities to become part of a newly reimaged team in response to expanded opportunities to engage with our internal and external community.
Supporting Assiniboine’s vision of exceptional learning experiences, the Advancement Department raises funds to assist in achieving the very best in programming, teaching and applied research. The Department is in the midst of our largest ever capital campaign to build a leading-edge agricultural training facility. With a strong focus on performance and best practice, guided by a strong Board and leadership team, Assiniboine offers a positive, collaborative team environment with a competitive compensation package.
Currently, we are looking for two experienced fundraising professionals to coordinate, and grow our established giving program of donors and prospective donors. As the ideal candidate, you have a proven track record of effective fundraising techniques and a successful negotiation ability through your sales or client management experience. With exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, you possess strong business and political acumen, and are highly analytical by nature. Demonstrated organizational skills as well as the ability to work independently and with a high level of confidentiality will be key to success in this role. A Degree in Business, Marketing or Communications will be considered an asset. A degree or relevant fundraising certificate is desired; however, an equivalent education with relevant experience will also be considered. A valid driver’s license is essential as some travel will be required.
Reporting to the Director, Advancement & External Relations, the Mid-Level Officer will assume a key fundraising position within the department that will grow student awards and be an active member in the fundraising team to solicit funds for projects within the college.
Both this position and the Major Gifts position, helps to identify, cultivate, track and solicit alumni, and friends of the college for philanthropic gifts to fund institutional priorities. This will be accomplished both individually and in coordination with department administrators, faculty, and outside volunteers, including the Foundation Board of Directors. Activities will be undertaken under minimal direction and work is evaluated based on results produced and objectives attained.
