NOTICES

BALLIOL COLLEGE

Appointment of Database Manager

The Development Office at Balliol College—which is responsible for fund-raising and for alumni relations—wishes to appoint a Database Manager.

He/she will be responsible primarily for the alumni database, and duties will include: data entry and retrieval; enhancing the data using research resources; generating data selections and reports for both fund-raising and alumni relations purposes; and other data analysis. The successful applicant will play an active part in aspects of the college's annual fund telephone campaign.

He/she will supervise the work of occasional data-entry staff (usually Balliol students). The post-holder will be required to provide IT support for the Development Offices's team (presently four people), and may also be required to assist the college's IT Manager on an occasional basis. For a candidate with an interest and skills in DTP, there would be scope for creative abilities in the design of publications and of the Development Office's Web pages.

Applicants should have practical experience of the management and technical support of Windows 95 based systems, including setting up equipment, installing software, and general trouble-shooting. Demonstrable experience in Windows 95 in a networked environment, and a thorough knowledge of Office 2000 applications, are required. Experience of managing a Raiser's Edge database would be a considerable advantage. The Database Manager would be expected to take a lively interest in the various activities of the college. This post would therefore suit someone with good IT skills who is interested in developing a career in the fund-raising and/or alumni relations sector.

The starting salary for this appointment will be £18,185–£18,915 (depending on skills and experience), and the appointment will be for a period of three years in the first instance. The post-holder should start, ideally, by August/ September if possible.
