We are seeking to appoint an Alumnae and Development Manager to cultivate meaningful relationships with alumnae and partners while developing fundraising avenues for the School’s bursary appeal. We offer a competitive salary and benefits. The position is to start as soon as possible.

Manchester High School for Girls is one of the leading independent girls' day schools in the country. It is a selective, academic school and last summer's public examination results at both Advanced and GCSE level were excellent, placing the School amongst the top schools nationally.

The School’s Development and Marketing Department consists of Director of Development and Marketing, an Alumnae and Development Manager, a Marketing and Communications Manager, Registrar and Admissions Assistant.

Marketing is responsible for overseeing anything related to the Manchester High School for Girls ‘brand’ and promoting what is on offer to prospective parents and students through advertising and PR, including maintaining the School’s various social media platforms and website.

The Development aspect of the department’s work involves maintaining links with over 4,000 members of the School’s alumnae community and raising funds for the School’s Bursary Fund.
