Responsible to: Director of Fundraising and Partnerships

Social Bite have some amazing corporate partners, and this role will manage and develop relationships with corporate supporters regionally based in Scotland and London. Your job will be to maximise engagement, and grow and extend each relationship. We have a powerful story and vision, and a great portfolio of events and campaigns to support with this – including the Festival of Kindness (a Christmas appeal), a Burns Supper, and a 100 Mile Challenge – not to mention highly tangible social impact projects such as our new Social Bite Villages, Jobs First programme and free food provision. Your portfolio will include well-known brands and large-scale employers, spanning a variety of sectors and support mechanisms from cause-related marketing and employee fundraising to volunteering and sponsorship. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to bring your relationship management skills to the growth of an innovative and entrepreneurial organisation as we take the next steps towards our vision of a society where no one should have to be homeless.

We’re looking for someone who is skilled in managing relationships and motivated to realise partnership potential. You will have a track history of partnership working and business development, and thrive in a dynamic, all-hands-on-deck environment. The ideal candidate will enjoy:

  • Building excellent relationships – working with colleagues and corporate partners to deliver meaningful, rewarding and positive partnerships.
  • Achieving targets – raising funds and other deliverables for mutually beneficial partnerships.
  • Making a difference – through the support generated, creating tangible results and long-term change in the mission to end homelessness.
  • Making it happen – being part of a team and an organisation who are solutions-focussed with a can-do attitude to deliver pioneering projects and innovative campaigns.

This position will report into and work closely with the Director of Fundraising and Partnerships, as part of the wider Fundraising and Marcomms team.

About Social Bite

Our vision is a society where no one should have to be homeless.

We are a charity and social business providing homes, jobs, food, and support to empower people to transform their own lives.

We are a catalyst for change. We challenge the status quo with innovative, scalable solutions that create lasting impact. Each of our pioneering projects support people to break the cycle of homelessness, whether that starts with a free meal, supported employment, or a safe place to call home.

We began as a small sandwich shop in Edinburgh in 2012, offering jobs and free food to people affected by homelessness. We’re now expanding our projects across the UK, on a collaborative mission – a movement to end homelessness.

Our growing projects include Social Bite Villages, the Jobs First programme, and social business coffee shops in Scotland and London. Our national and global campaigns have shifted the cultural dial on homelessness and our work has been championed by George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sir Chris Hoy and the Princess of Wales. A number of our team have been homeless themselves.

Thank you for your interest in this role! We’d love you to apply.
