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.

This fantastic opportunity offers hybrid and flexible working between home and a central London co-working hub.

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.

Due to an internal promotion, and to meet our plans for growth, we're recruiting for two Partnership Fundraising Executives to join the team. The Executives will:

* help organise and deliver fundraising events,
* create fundraising materials and communications,
* lead on cross team projects,
* thank partners and fundraisers for their support,
* bring to life the impact that our partnerships allow us to have on the lives of older people,
* help the team to research and identify new partnership opportunities,
* support the team with pitches and high value proposals,
* manage all inbound enquiries for companies looking to support Age UK,
* and manage their own portfolio of partnerships.
These roles will be integral to supporting the Corporate Partnerships team to meet our ambitious plans for growth and to help the older people who need us the most.
This is an opportunity for excellent relationship builders with attention to detail, to join our creative and energetic team and work on sector leading and award-winning partnerships.

You will have:

* Experience in a fundraising, marketing or sales role is preferable, but not essential
* The ability to use your own initiative and seek advice where needed.
* Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. You're able to build strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
* Great administration skills with an attention to detail - identifying ways we can work more efficiently
* A passion for making life better for older people, and crucially you can see how corporate partnerships can help Age UK do this.

What we offer in return

* Competitive salary, 26 days annual leave + bank holidays + annual leave purchase scheme.
* Excellent pension scheme, life assurance, Simply Health cashback plan and EAP.
* Car Benefit Scheme, Cycle to Work Scheme and Season Ticket Loan.
* Techscheme - buy any tech from Apple or Currys, up to £1000, and spread the cost over 12 months, interest free
* Heka Fitness & Wellbeing Benefit.
* You Did It Awards - recognition awards from £100-250.
