Make a difference. Make it Berkeley.

Berkeley is committed to hiring staff who share our workplace culture. If the culture we are building describes the kind of place where you’d like to work, we invite you to join us.

Our workplace culture.

As employees of Berkeley, we are part of an institution that uncovers new knowledge, con-ducts groundbreaking research and shifts the global conversation every single day. We all do different things. (Very different things.)

But together, we are serving a university that’s unlike any other. no matter our role, we help Berkeley redefine what’s possible.

  • We do this by being inclusive—of ideas, of people, of points of view.
  • By being accountable—to each other, to our teams, to our commitments.
  • By simplifying whenever possible. (It’s often how the best solutions arise.)
  • By taking risks. (And learning from them.) And by serving Berkeley, and everyone who is part of it, with respect.

Individually, we are experts at what we do. Collectively, our impact is even greater.

As employees of Berkeley, when we reimagine the possibilities of our own world, we shape the one around us.

Reimagine your world at Berkeley.

“As a part of the support structure for the fundraising for the UC Berkeley campus, I feel a great sense of pride knowing that I am helping promote the cutting-edge research, top-notch faculty, and programs that will have world-wide impact. I love the opportunity to work with donors and colleagues across campus to further Berkeley’s mission of being the best public university in the world.”

“Gift Planning fundraising at Berkeley is a truly unique experience for a fundraising and philanthropy professional. It is a high-paced intellectually stimulating environment. The variety of gift types you’ll work on and the donor stories you’ll hear will be virtually unmatched anywhere. What’s more, you’d be working at the premiere public university in the world!”

“Working in Development and Alumni Relations at UC Berkeley is a great place to further develop your leadership and management skills, leverage your private and/or non-profit sector experience, and put your analytical, communication, and inter-personal skills to use to benefit the best public higher education institution in the world.

Come join us at UC Berkeley to be challenged, grow, and make a difference.“

Laurent (Lo) de Janvry, Director, Annual Giving, Haas School of Business Development and Alumni Relations

"Fundraising at Berkeley means being part of a community and an endeavor that is bigger than yourself, bigger and more significant than anything you might imagine.

Faculty, students, staff—we are all here to make the world a better place. That is the bottom line. Every day at Berkeley is about creating knowledge that will make a difference to us collectively and individually.

One of the most gratifying things about Berkeley is that you don’t have to be a Cal Alum to support Berkeley; non-alums are motivated and inspired by what we do to make substantial donations. I think that says a lot about the impact of the place."

Annette Doornbos, Assistant Dean of External Affairs and Development, Goldman School of Public Policy

“I chose to work at Berkeley because of the university’s commitment to access and excellence. I love being part of a team that is addressing individual, local, and global needs on a daily basis. As a bonus I get to work with creative, innovative, and inclusive colleagues who support and challenge me to continue to progress and learn. I encourage you to join us. ”

“The pursuit of ideas, the incredibly engaging students, the approachable and collaborative faculty—these are the things that make working at Berkeley great. While our mission of teaching, research and service may be consistent with our peer institutions, our culture certainly is not. Berkeley is different. Sharing opportunities for our alumni, donor and friends to be a part of this special place gives me true satisfaction.”
