Our Team

Located in Front Square on College Green in Dublin city centre, Trinity Development & Alumni (TDA) is at the heart of Trinity, in every sense. We are the interface between the university and its alumni, donors and friends in Ireland and around the world.

Our work is multifaceted: from building bespoke donor relationships and launching global philanthropic campaigns, to organising myriad events, publishing journals and collaborating with alumni chapters around the world. To deliver on our goals, we have 50 motivated, professional, creative and committed staff working across 10 departments in a variety of functions including fundraising & development, alumni relations, regular giving & legacy giving, communications & events, and business intelligence & analytics.

Each week in TDA is different which allows my job to be both challenging and rewarding at the same time.
Anthony Hopper, Alumni Relations Executive
It is inspiring to work with our donors and alumni in helping to create opportunities for Trinity staff and students. TDA and our donors ensure that the brightest minds can benefit from Trinity’s first-class teaching, whatever their circumstances, by removing barriers and levelling the playing field. I love hearing of the real and tangible difference that our work is making in the lives of the Trinity community.
Niamh McCourt, Fundraising Manager
I work with motivated and supportive people who are creative and focussed, in equal measure. I enjoy being part of a lively and diverse work place that employs a dynamic approach to tasks and solutions.
James Fleming, Digital Marketing Officer
