The Corporate Partnerships team manage award-winning, long-term, strategic partnerships that raise more than £5m for the charity. Partnerships with household names, such as Asda, M&S and ghd, deliver both commercial results for our partners and benefit women and their families affected by breast cancer.
You will take the lead in designing and securing the next wave of strategic, long-term, high profile and high value (6 figure+) partnerships. You will take ownership over sectors, research and identify top prospects, and proactively approach and build relationships with Director level contacts of key companies.
You will work in a supportive, creative, and ambitious environment, managed by an experienced Head of Corporate Engagement and alongside a passionate and talented team.
Corporate Engagement is of huge importance to the charity and it is important to harness all available expertise, so we would expect you to liaise across the whole charity and to act as a role model for collaboration across our team and the charity.
We need someone with a proven track record of securing 5 figure+ corporate partnerships. You will be ambitious, proactive, tenacious, and a commercially driven corporate fundraiser.
You will demonstrate experience of securing a variety of partnerships, including Charity of the Year, strategic, sponsorship or cause-related marketing campaigns - by establishing strong working relationships with all stakeholders.
You will need to be a great relationship builder with excellent public speaking and presentation skills. You will be results driven and highly organised, with an ability to monitor and prioritise potential opportunities in a fast-paced environment. An eye for spotting how a business can help a charity, or its beneficiaries, is key. A natural empathy for women and their families affected by breast cancer is essential.
