Lightful is a high-impact, award winning B-Corp whose vision is a future where non-profits have the power to create more equitable communities and a healthier planet. Lightful’s BRIDGE programme equips charities and civil society organisations with the digital tools and capabilities to become more resilient organisations who can deliver greater impact. They are on a mission to help non-profits become better storytellers, build trust and raise more money. They achieve their ambitions by working within, and for, the ecosystem of international funders in the global south and global north, foundations, philanthropists, donors and corporations. They are at a key growth point in their journey and are seeking a new Chief Partnerships Officer to accelerate their growth and impact across the globe. Prospectus is excited to lead the search for Lightful, who we have worked with for many years.

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will use your passion for enabling impact locally and across the globe to be the leading voice and relationship-builder with new and existing funder partners. You will get to work with organisations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Comic Relief, UBS Optimus Foundation and many other leading UK, US and international funders. You will also utilise your existing network to identify and win new business and strategic partnerships, by finding leads, nurturing relationships and closing contracts.

As Lightful expands their reach and impact, you will have ultimate responsibility to identify, develop and steward strategic relationships with a wide array of philanthropic funders, which will enable small charities and non-profits to become more resilient through digital skills, tools and training. Lightful’s approach is to build strong, long-lasting and impactful partnerships, which can be bilaterally or in cohorts of collaborative funding partners within specific geographies or around impact cause/theme areas. There is no limit to how partnerships can flourish at Lightful.

You will inspire the Partnerships team, be a collaborative member of Lightful’s senior leadership team and work closely with a highly passionate and engaged board of directors and colleagues across the Programme, Impact, Engineering, Design, Finance and People teams.

The successful candidate will have a varied set of skills and experiences, with strong commercial acumen and a deep knowledge of the philanthropic sector and a proven track record of developing plans and executing those plans to reach large revenue targets, ideally from an existing network within the sector.
