Full Time - 37 hours per week, 8.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday (52 weeks) with occasional work outside of normal office hours. Some evening and weekend working is required.

The Governors seek to appoint an Alumni and Development Assistant to provide maternity cover as a part of Reading School's Society Office starting in January 2023.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an excellent team that is passionate about strengthening our relationships inside and outside of the school.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has good interpersonal and organisational skills.
  • Works successfully as a member of a team.
  • Is able to work in a fast moving, and sometimes changing environment with a flexible approach.


The Development Office has a key role in the generation and stewardship of donations which support all aspects of Reading School life, including creating opportunities to bring community and supporters together.

As we approach our 900th Anniversary in 2025, we are strengthening our relationships and plan to build a programme of memorable events and engagement that inspires and adds value to the life of our pupils and local community.

The Alumni & Development Assistant is an essential member of the Societies Office who will support the development of our fundraising ambitions and continue to develop our alumnae and parent relationships, which are key to the success of the School.

We are situated 15 minutes walk from central Reading and close to transport links. Reading is a diverse place to live with arts, culture and heritage at the heart of the town.

We offer an exceptional all-round education enabling each student to realise his academic, cultural or sporting potential. A Selective Boys’ School, Reading School takes both day and boarding students.

In 2022, the school was rated the Sunday Times South East State School of the Year and awarded 'outstanding' in the Boarding Ofsted Inspection in February 2020.
