Do you love dogs? Are you a corporate fundraiser looking for a new challenge?
Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK and last year we cared for over 9,000 dogs in our network of 21 rehoming centres across the UK and Ireland. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. At Dogs Trust no healthy dog is ever destroyed.
We are reliant on voluntary donations to continue our work. To support this, we are seeking a fundraiser with experience of new business development to help increase our income from corporates partnerships. We’re looking for someone who relishes the excitement of new business and has exceptional commercial acumen, as this role has a heavy emphasis on bringing on board new cause related marketing and strategic partnerships in line with the current corporate fundraising strategy.
Reporting to the Corporate Development Team Manager and working alongside our existing team, you will be responsible for identifying, cultivating, and acquiring new partnerships with national businesses. You will also support the development of Dogs Trust’s partnership strategy across a range of income streams and prepare creative pitches and proposals.
If you have: (1) a proven success in securing six figure revenue (sales, marketing or partnerships), (2) excellent communication and relationship building skills, (3) an ability to think laterally and creatively, (4) a love for dogs and drive to make a real difference, we’d love to hear from you!
