Job description

Starlight is recruiting for a talented Head of Business Development to lead their relationships with corporate partners, and grow their commercial income derived from delivering services in healthcare settings.

Salary: £60,000 - £65,000

Location: Hybrid / Hammersmith, London

About Starlight Children’s Foundation

Starlight is the national charity for children’s play in healthcare, supporting children to experience the power of play during treatment, care and recovery from illness in more than six hundred healthcare settings across the UK.

Play is integral to the well-being of children and can make hospitals and hospices feel more welcoming, safe and a good place to thrive, ensuring children live every day even when they are sick.

We aim to enable all children in the UK to have their right to play protected and provided for when they are receiving healthcare – in or out of hospital.

About the role

The purpose of the Head of New Business Development role is to relentlessly seek new opportunities for Starlight to develop high return on investment partnership opportunities.

A key focus will be to increase the variety and volume of corporate partnerships, seeking strong alignment of purpose and culture to establish long-term relationships, providing partners with the value they seek and delivering a reliable pipeline of income and gifts in kind for Starlight.

The scope of the corporate income opportunity is huge, but there is also the opportunity to build an initiative-taking culture of growth across a number of different fundraising activities, giving the opportunity to create relationships through many touch points.

Starlight already receives significant income from partner events like CarFest, the TRIC Awards and The Story of Christmas. The tangible nature of our purpose and the appeal of our brand, makes us an attractive partner for these third-party events.

An important part of this role will be to identify new event partner opportunities that deliver income, as well as the opportunity to extend our reach, engagement and build new relationships.

Who we are looking for

Our ideal candidate will be fearless in identifying and seizing opportunity, making connections, overcoming barriers and developing new income streams.

You will have:

·         Significant experience in a senior fundraising role with clear evidence of strategy development, implementation and income results.

·         Significant experience of understanding and developing partnership opportunities, able to listen, respond and adapt, creating aligned partnership proposals.

·         Credibility and gravitas to build relationships and influence people at all levels, with evidence of own networks.

·         Commitment to personal development and able to manage your own environment and make appropriate, balanced decisions for yourself, others, and Starlight.
