Help change vulnerable children’s lives for the better by building strong agency partnerships

World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We were proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2014 and 2015 and we are absolutely delighted to be ranked in 9th place in the same category for 2016.  

Are you an experienced and talented Key Account or Contract Manager? Are you able to build strong partnerships with agencies in a fast-moving consumer-focused environment? Can you help us acquire the sponsors we need to address the needs of the most vulnerable children across the world?

If you are, this exciting and varied role will give you scope to make a massive difference in five key areas of responsibility:

Account Management – Building relationships at all levels of agencies, using a wide range of problem-solving, negotiation and influencing skills

Internal stakeholder management – Ensuring the smooth operation of face to face fundraising services delivered by agencies on behalf of World Vision

Monitoring and reporting – Able to analyse and drive performance, accurately representing the achievements of the partnerships you are responsible for

Financial Management – Making sure clear and simple processes and administration characterise our relationships with agencies to make the most of supporters’ funds

Training and Development – Oversee and plan the programme to enable agencies to authentically represent World Vision

 You should be:

  • Confident in negotiating with agencies at the highest level
  • Expert at building lasting partnerships with agencies
  • A natural problem-solver
  • Have a strong eye for detail, particularly in administration and processes

Our Christian identity underpins everything we do, so as an active and committed Christian, this role will give you the opportunity to integrate your faith with your management experience and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

 In addition to the salary offered, you can expect a range of benefits including pension, subsidised gym membership, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (Milton Keynes only).

If you have you got the passion, determination and drive to make a powerful impact in this exciting role, we would love to hear from you!
