Job title: Partnerships Coordinator
Full-time: 37.5 hours per week
Salary: £28,500, plus benefits
Location: Milton Keynes (with potential for flexible, home-based working for the right candidate)

We are a national charity that exists for spinal cord injured people, run by spinal cord injured (SCI) people. For more than 45 years, we have empowered spinal cord injured people to rebuild their lives after injury through provision of vital information, representation, and support. Spinal Injuries Association is a truly inspirational place to work.

SIA is a beacon of light for the 50,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK living day-to-day with paralysis, incontinence, and a high risk of life-threatening conditions. With determination, flexibility, and creativity we are responding to a huge increase in demand for our services, ensuring that the support we offer is available to everyone in need, no matter their circumstances.

Roughly 2,500 people each year sustain or acquire a spinal cord injury, and we are currently undergoing a period of rapid development to create a network of support available to every spinal cord injured person in the UK. SIA is soon set to become a true Association of people and partners, working collaboratively to ensure that a fulfilled life is a possibility for everyone affected by spinal cord injury.

If you enjoy building outstanding, long-lasting relationships, are a strategic thinker, and love working collaboratively with committed stakeholders, then we could have the perfect job for you.

We are looking for someone to join our dynamically evolving fundraising team, to take a leading role in the ongoing success of our strategic relationships with Trusted Partners, and to make sure that we are capitalizing on the opportunities presented by working with firms who are committed and engaged across all of SIA’s charitable services and activities. 

Spinal Injuries Association is in the midst of transformational change. We already make a significant difference to the lives of people affected by spinal cord injury, but there is so much more we plan to do. We have ambitious plans to scale up our reach and impact to make sure that we are able to support everyone affected by spinal cord injury in the UK each year, and securing and maintaining high value partnerships is just one of the ways that we aim to achieve these plans.

With 20 Trusted Partners currently supporting us from across the Legal, Care and Financial sectors, we are keen to continue the development of these relationships, whilst also securing new partners across many different business sectors who interact with the wider SCI community. We have ambitious plans to turn SIA into an ‘Association for All’, making sure that we can meet the unique, individual needs of everyone we support for life after spinal cord injury.

If you share our passion, drive, have a can-do attitude and have a background in a corporate fundraising, business development or corporate account management, then we would love to hear from you.

Application deadline is: 5pm, Friday 14th May 2021
Interviews will be held on May 24th over MS Teams
