About the role

The Alzheimer’s Society New Business team is coming back stronger than ever following the pandemic and a period where the market for new partnerships really stalled. In the last financial year the team secured around £2m in income, and this figure is set to grow over the coming years.

This role co-leads the New Business team, ensuring that we are building strong relationships with prospects, presenting compelling propositions and prioritising the biggest and best partnership opportunities. We seek to secure partnerships that deliver big on income and impact, working with companies from a whole host of sectors; retail, banking, insurance and many more.

You will personally lead on our highest value and most complex prospects whilst also setting the direction and co-leading the New Business team. This is an opportunity to stay in the action as a fundraising practitioner, and build on your skills as a team leader.

This role will work from home, with some travel required (mostly to London) depending on location of partners and team meetings.

Dementia is the greatest challenge of our time, and our partners are helping to make life better for people affected by dementia and give hope for the future.
