Director of Advancement



At Hilton College we celebrate every one of our 570 diversely talented, creative, altruistic young men. This environment cultivates great individual stories of triumph, distinction, determination, compassion, courage and passion. It is the school’s endeavour to continue this tradition by improving facilities and making Hilton more accessible to boys from families who cannot afford the fees. In so doing, we hope to continue developing great leaders.

To this end, the Board of Governors has listed the growth of the Hilton College Endowment Fund as a strategic priority. To build on recent successes in this area Hilton College requires a Director of Advancement to develop, plan, facilitate, support, co-ordinate and monitor endowment initiatives amongst staff, parents and Old Hiltonians.


  • Prospect for people who share Hilton’s vision and have the potential to become contributors
  • Cultivate relationships with prospective donors to enhance their sense of connection with the school
  • Work with Governors, Old Hiltonians, parents and staff to solicit donations
  • Demonstrate stewardship by ensuring the school shows appreciation of donors, and provides feedback on projects undertaken


  • At least five years’ experience in work that requires proficient sales abilities
  • Good interpersonal skills to develop relations with a diverse range of stakeholders
  • Excellent communication skills to clearly convey the story of Hilton
  • Strong administrative abilities to manage timelines and targets

The school’ s Research and Database Manager together with the Function Co-ordinator will report to the Director of Advancement, who in turn will report to the Headmaster, and work closely with the National Chairman of the Old Hiltonian Club, the Director of Marketing and the Finance Manager. The successful applicant will be based at Hilton College but will be required to travel several times a year to other parts of South Africa, and possibly internationally.

Interested applicants should submit a full curriculum vitae, proof of qualification, two references and a letter of intent (articulating what you might bring to this role) to the email address below.
