Top job! Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships

  • Full time
  • £43,863 – £50,277

  • Advertised from 3rd September 2021
  • 35 hours per week

This terrible COVID19 pandemic has created previously unimaginable levels of need. In fundraising we’ve retained our focus. Relationships and innovations have been central to our ability to not only deliver but grow income.

We shifted our approach to corporate partnerships, moving away from applying to the mass charity of the year opportunities to instead focussing our resources on making a targeted approach to those we have our values aligned with.

Maximising relationships is a key focus for the philanthropy and partnerships team and moving forward we are keen to develop strategic and transformational partnerships with individuals and organisations.

We are developing a high value giving club and a programme of cultivation events. Maximising relationships for introductions, skills-based volunteering, pro-bono support and joint initiatives/campaigns are strands of work.

We are looking for an experienced fundraising head to lead the team. You’ll be a strategic thinking, with a proven track record of managing relationships and translating plans into action (previous experience of corporate and/or major donor fundraising isn’t essential).

We work at a fast pace (I make no apologies for that). If leading this type of work sounds appealing to you, then please do get in touch.
