Free London newspaper Metro runs a regular column on careers. Today they are featuring fundraisers. On entry requirements Metro says that “there are no specific academic requirements though a relevant degree or equivalent, for example in business, finance or law, may be advantageous.” In terms of salaries, “fundraising staff start at about £12,000… Experienced fundraisers can earn up to £40,000.” A quick glance at current job adverts suggests this upper limit is somewhat conservative, particularly given some of the salaries of senior university development managers.
