SOAS is taking part in the CASE Europe Graduate Trainee Scheme as a host institution for the first time this year, and applications are now open. Recent graduates or soon-to-be graduates may apply for this year-long, paid internship programme.

This Scheme introduces high-quality UK graduates to a rewarding fundraising career within the higher education sector. It has been developed to provide an entry point for bright, young professionals into a fulfilling career raising money, engagement and support for UK. Today the advancement community has never been more needed. With government funding for universities decreasing, institutions must raise more private funds and garner more support in order to continue making a difference to the lives of students, local communities and the benefactors of world-leading research.

 Each graduate is recruited to a host university where he or she spends an in-depth year learning on the job. Trainees will work within each area of the university's development function, including alumni relations, prospect management, annual and regular giving, stewardship, campaigns, major gifts, events and partnerships. The breadth of this experience in a tight timeframe provides graduates with a fully rounded view of fundraising in higher education and its vital supporting operations.

Please visit the CASE website for more information and to apply. 

Application closing date Monday March 9, 6:00 pm.
