David Meadows

Development Officer - Legacies and Individual Gifts

ProfileDave has been with the University of Sheffield since 2003 when he first made the journey over the Pennines from Manchester to begin his studies for a business degree. As a student Dave worked in the Development and Alumni Relations Office as a student caller and enjoyed his time speaking with alumni from a host of different backgrounds.

In 2006, he graduated with a BA in Business Studies and started his career as the Alumni Fund Caller Manager. This involved managing a team of students who raised money for the University. In 2009, Dave moved into his current post as the Development Officer for Legacies.

For Dave, the most enjoyable element of the job is being able to meet with alumni and friends, and hear all their fantastic anecdotes about their time in Sheffield. It is also a pleasure to be able to support people who would like to help current students and staff with a gift in their Will.

In December 2012, David Meadows qualified with a Certificate in Legacy Administration, a course ran through the Institute of Legacy Management (ILM). The course is designed by the College of Law together with practising Legacy Professionals with the aim to benefit the Legacy Professional looking for an understanding of the subject up to an intermediate level. We hope that by having a member of staff at the University with this qualification, it will help to re-assure you that you will be getting best possible advice from a trained professional.

In his spare time, Dave enjoys running and has recently completed his third marathon. He also enjoys watching Manchester United and Altrincham FC. One of his passions is teaching on the Self Leadership Initiative in the Sheffield Colleges. This aims to provide young people in Sheffield with leadership skills and knowledge that will stay with them throughout their life.
