Business Development Officer
Education: BA (Hons) Business and Management, with Year in Industry, Bath Spa University
My responsibilities at Buffalo:
As a Business Development Officer, my main role is identifying, as well as maintaining, fundraising partnerships between Buffalo and Higher Education institutions. Working within the Business Development Universities Team, I assist by guiding universities through the initial stages of their fundraising campaigns, whether it be Telethons or Giving Days. Each campaign is unique and tailored to suit clients on an individual basis and the support needed to achieve these goals starts from the very first point of contact.
Why I chose to work for Buffalo:
I love how clear and open Buffalo is with not just its clients, but its staff too. I believe everyone deserves access to Higher Education, and with this being a cause close to my heart, it meant a lot to me to be able to work for an organisation that supports universities with raising the funds needed for those all-important grants and scholarships. It's also important to me to be able to work in an environment where I'm free to be myself and continue to grow as a person. Buffalo is an exceptional place to work where I’ve felt welcomed since my very first day!
