Situated in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, Williams College offers a rich academic environment in a beautiful setting. The Berkshires—known as a cultural corridor—are a great place to live, work and raise a family, with several top-notch schools and an array of recreational opportunities from world-class museums to swimming holes to hiking trails. The New York Capital Region, Albany International Airport and Albany-Rensselaer Amtrak Train Station are just an hour away, and Boston and New York City are within three hours by car or bus.
Williams College has been around for more than 200 years, yet we’re constantly evolving and growing. As a liberal arts college, Williams has always taught fundamental problem-solving skills that students can use well beyond their four years here. We also recognize that facing complex issues within our history and culture is necessary for sustaining an equitable, just and environmentally responsible community. We strive to create an inclusive culture in which every voice is heard. The college is committed to ensuring that everyone is able to find their place and thrive, no matter who you are, where you come from or what role you fulfill when you get here.
ABOUT THE POSITION
The Williams College Development Office is more than a little sad to announce an opening for a Senior Development Officer reporting to the Director of Major Giving. We’re sad because a giant among us is retiring. We’re also excited by the opportunity to hire a new team member who will bring their enthusiasm for connecting a passionate alumni and parent community with opportunities to support Williams’ talented and intellectually-curious students and faculty. We are seeking an energetic storyteller, great listener, relationship builder, strong writer and hyper-organized team-player to join a team dedicated to achieving ambitious fundraising goals that make the College’s highest aspirations possible. Williams College is currently launching several multi-year fundraising initiatives in support of the ideas laid out in the strategic plan.
Pay range is from $90 to 115K, commensurate with experience.
