  • To manage a portfolio of events for alumni and friends of the College, commensurate with the reputation for high standards of hospitality that the College enjoys.
  • Attendance at events throughout the year, some of which will be in the evening or at weekends (for which time off in lieu will be granted) as well as some being outside Oxford.
  • To use creativity in reviewing, developing and taking ownership of delivery of the stewardship strategy and accompanying processes.
  • Maintaining and developing strong relationships with alumni, and being the first port of call for alumni enquires, and supporting with alumni requests
