The University of Saskatchewan (USask) has career opportunities with our Development team in the following areas:
§ Development Officer, College of Agriculture and Bioresources
§ Development Officer, College of Engineering

Our development officers work collaboratively across University Relations (UR) with college and unit leaders, faculty and staff to build strategic relationships with prospects and donors.
Our development officers not only engage donors in key programs and initiatives, articulating the opportunities and impact of their financial investments, but also may support specific fundraising programs or initiatives. We garner an in-depth understanding of college priorities, programs, initiatives and stakeholders with the mandate to build relationships that support major and principal gift programs and initiatives.
Development officers work as part of our broader development team, which provides support to dedicated colleges and schools at USask. Our development team’s role is to encourage and obtain philanthropic support for the university in support of the University Plan 2025, being the university the world needs (nīkānītān manācihitowinihk; ni manachīhitoonaan). We work in partnership with academic and development colleagues throughout the university to build enduring relationships not only with our community of alumni, but also with other individuals, private business and foundations.
Our university is at the heart of Saskatoon, on Treaty 6 territory and the homeland of the Métis, and one of Canada’s top research universities. Driven by prairie spirit, we make life better for the people of Saskatchewan and the world.
