Current Opportunities

Looking for your next career opportunity? Then working within the Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) here at UCL could be exactly what you are looking for.


UCL is a welcoming, dynamic, global university based in one of the most exciting capital cities in the world, and working here means working for a world class organisation.

There has never been a more exciting time to join DARO. We are currently in the momentum-building phase for a major new fundraising and supporter engagement campaign, expected to launch publicly in 2016. This will be a new type of campaign; more international in its outlook and will extend our reach beyond the traditional pool of alumni as prospective donors. It will have a strong partnership element with other institutions and with our partner hospital charities, and will change the way we identify and engage with all of our supporters.

Today, the team comprises more than 60 members of staff working across Supporter Engagement, Fundraising and Insight - click here for DARO’s organisational chart.

To deliver a campaign of this scale, we are expanding and building a multi-talented team of individuals who have the potential to deliver new and innovative approaches and the ambition to push the boundaries of what is possible.
