Keen to join a growing Charitable Partnerships Team that loves to connect the best in academic research and education with leading donors?
Join us in the ambitious Birmingham In Action campaign, which commits to raising over £400 million of charitable funding and one million volunteer hours, positioning the University of Birmingham as one of the world leaders in University development.
We are recruiting a Corporate Partnerships Officer to support the Head of Corporate Philanthropy to maximise philanthropic funding from local, national, and global businesses. As the Corporate Partnerships Officer, you will have experience of managing and building a portfolio of donor relationships or corporate partnerships (preferably five – seven figure value) to deliver specific gift or financial ambitions. You will enjoy engaging with people from all walks of life (including high-level corporate professionals, academics, and students) to help deliver positive impact. Experience of successfully operating within and across Corporate, Higher Education, and wider Charitable sectors will be helpful. There will be opportunities for the successful candidate to help shape and develop the portfolio in conjunction with the Head of Corporate Philanthropy. For example, it is anticipated that corporate philanthropy will play a pivotal role in supporting scholarships, providing internships and mentors, research funding and wider knowledge transfer activities.
The Corporate Partnerships Officer post is part funded for the first year by a generous gift from Goldman Sachs to support the delivery of the Goldman Sachs Scholars' programme. This programme will provide 50 Pathways to Birmingham scholars per year the opportunity to engage and improve their employability through activities with Goldman Sachs. Due to the funding arrangement, part of the post holder’s time will be spent managing the Goldman Sachs Scholars' programme, and the remaining time will be supporting the account management, stewardship, and coordination of other philanthropic corporate partners, as directed by the Head of Corporate Philanthropy.
We are an ambitious and successful research-intensive University (one of the top 100 research-led universities globally) and have produced 10 Nobel Prize winners. Academics here are tackling some of the world’s most pressing global challenges such as antibody testing and COVID-19, the impact of climate change on our woodlands and forests, issues caused by migration and displacement, the rise in youth mental health issues, and the prevention of needless maternal deaths in the developing world. Our students come from nearly 150 countries and our flagship outreach programmes mean that almost 25% of our student population come from disadvantaged backgrounds, one of the highest proportions in the UK. Philanthropy has always played an important role in shaping the University, most recently in 2015 when we closed the Circles of Influence Campaign, which raised £193 million, making it the largest HE fundraising campaign outside Oxbridge and London. Through ‘Birmingham In Action’, philanthropy will continue to play a vital role in delivering projects to change lives locally, nationally, and internationally.
We are committed to supporting hybrid working and look forward to receiving your application.
Interviews are currently scheduled to take place week commencing 7 February 2022.
