The ideal candidate is a business minded leader who embodies what Ryerson is known for: innovation and entrepreneurship, leadership and best practices, nimbleness and responsiveness, and equity, diversity and inclusion. You must have successful experience at both raising significant philanthropic donations through either professional or voluntary experience, and with collaborating and supporting academics and researchers. Strong people management skills, an ability to build strong partnerships with both internal and external stakeholders, and an ease communicating with groups of varying size and sophistication are also required. Knowledge of decentralized staffing models, experience with stewardship through solicitation, management of high level volunteer recruitment and strategic alumni engagement activities are all considered strong assets.

We welcome those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense.
