Job description

There has never been a more important time to join Age UK. Against a backdrop of a broken social care system and millions already turning to Age UK for help, older people are amongst those hardest hit by the Coronavirus pandemic.

If you're passionate about making life better for older people and sector leading corporate partnerships then this is an opportunity for you to join an award winning, ambitious, and supportive team.

About the role:

The corporate partnerships team is riding high on the success of our award-winning partnership with Cadbury and some recent six & seven-figure partnership wins.

The successful candidate will be responsible for creating compelling propositions that generate income across a range of income streams, from strategic to commercial and brand partnership as well as charity of the year. You'll manage a portfolio of prospects from a range of sectors to secure high value corporate partnerships that deliver across a range of objectives enabling us to help more older people who need us the most.

This is an opportunity for ambitious and tenacious relationship builders to join our creative and energetic team and create sector leading award-winning partnerships.

All applications are managed by our Recruitment team. However, if you have any questions or would like an informal chat with the hiring manager we'd love to hear from you. Our Recruitment team can help to set this up, please call the Recruitment Hotline.

* Experience of being in a similar role or environment, ideally corporate partnerships (or sales or marketing professional)
* Tenacity, the ability to build strong relationships, spot opportunities and run with them.
* Excellent communication skills, and the ability to write great proposals, lead productive meetings and build strong relationships with senior stakeholders.
* A strong grasp of what it takes to build mutually beneficial, long-lasting, genuinely profitable charity-corporate partnerships.
* You are passionate about making life better for older people. And crucially you can see how corporate partnerships can help Age UK do this.
