Closing date: 21 June 2018 at 11.30pm
We’re looking for a personable individual with corporate fundraising/commercial business development and marketing experience to join us as Senior New Partnerships Manager and identify, develop and deliver some truly innovative new business opportunities.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
The Corporate Partnerships team is part of an award-winning fundraising division that generates over £35m gross income a year and has seen continuous diversity and growth. We are responsible for increasing our voluntary income by delivering new corporate contacts and partnerships to fulfil our mission to help more people. Over the past year alone, we have been successful in building long term partnerships with B&Q, HSBC and M&S Bank, securing both cash and in-kind or pro-bono support. Join us, and you could soon be playing an important part in our future successes.
About the Role
Securing long-term, high value corporate partnerships across a range of disciplines, with a focus on Charity of the Year and strategic partnerships, is the challenge here. As well as gaining new business from a variety of supporters, you’ll develop lasting relationships, boost brand awareness and deliver innovative and tailored pitches and presentations to senior business leaders. We’ll also rely on you to line manage a New Partnerships Assistant and help them develop their potential. Identifying prospects, presenting creative propositions, monitoring performance against objectives and contributing to the delivery of the team’s strategy and plan – all are aspects of this high profile role.
As well as proven relevant experience, you’ll need a strong understanding of, and ability to apply, commercial and financial principles to improve business performance. We’ll also be looking for the interpersonal skills to engage a range of stakeholders and build a strong network of potential funders to support our mission. Adept at managing the day-to-day delivery of complex relationships/projects, you convey ideas succinctly and persuasively too. What’s more, you are great at delivering presentations/pitches, have a proactive, results-driven approach, lots of creativity and, above all, a track record of achieving six figure value new business or income targets.
Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
