About the role
Macmillan has one of the largest and most successful corporate partnerships teams in the sector and we have an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic Corporate Business Development team.

In this role, you will proactively develop and secure a pipeline of high value, multifaceted commercial and strategic partnerships to deliver income and impact for people living with cancer. As a technical expert you will use your skills and experience to create compelling propositions, lead negotiations and pitch processes to secure long-term partnerships valued in excess of £100,000 per annum.  This is an exciting role that involves working with a wide range of senior stakeholders, both in our head office and across the country to identify new opportunities and win new business.

You are an experienced business development professional with proven commercial acumen in the charity or private sector, who has transferable skills and knowledge, which include:

  • Commercial understanding and cross sector business knowledge
  • Expert sales and negotiation skills
  • Experience of corporate fundraising

At Macmillan, we understand how important it is that our workforce is representative of the people we support, and who support us. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, ethnic minority and LGBTQ+ candidates.

We want to ensure roles are accessible and inclusive of everyone, which is why Macmillan offers a high degree of flexibility around ways of working. The role location is flexible and can be home based or split between home and our headquarters in Vauxhall, London, with flexible start and finish times. As an externally facing role with critical external stakeholder relationships, we would expect some flexibility in terms of travelling to see partners and prospects. 

We commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
