- Judy Bertfield, Senior Philanthropy Manager (Trusts)
I was struck by applications being encouraged from those seeking part-time working. My role provides me with career progression in a team that embodies a welcoming, open-minded and ambitious approach. I feel thoroughly supported as a working parent, which helps me achieve a work-life balance, and motivates me to get the job done and do it well. Having always worked within charities I am delighted with having transitioned to Higher Education. UCL’s impact on communities and individuals is extraordinary, everyone can be touched by UCL’s life-changing work.
- Sonia Abrams, Senior Events Manager (Live Events)
I am on secondment from UCL’s Communications and Marketing Office, as Senior Events Manager for our Campaign. This opportunity exceeds my expectations, it enables me to develop my skills and work on a variety of events, where I am encouraged to be creative and take the events to the next level. I will also fulfil a career goal of managing international events. I love knowing that events we deliver can lead to crucial gifts, supporting our projects to achieve UCL’s 2034 strategy. The team are very supportive and focused, with a willingness to succeed and collaborate to go the extra mile.
- Martin Wedlake, Executive Head of Strategic Planning
One of the biggest factors in making the move to work at UCL was the scale of ambition demonstrated by the Advancement Office, as was the opportunity to work in a team that values expertise in strategy and operations. The move from charities to UCL has been very rewarding, and I’ve been impressed by the scale and the immediacy of the impact of UCL’s work. It’s very motivating to work in an environment where the potential of fundraising and supporter engagement is recognised and invested in by the organisation’s stakeholders.
