Prospectus is excited to be supporting the team at Autistica in their search for a Corporate Partnerships Manager. This is a new role; part of a wider team expansion. Autistica is proud to be in the top five of the Third Sector Best Charities to Work for 2020 list.
Autistica's mission is to create breakthroughs enabling autistic people to live happier, healthier, longer lives. Their objectives are simple; they want to close the autism life expectancy gap; end health inequality, and ensure autistic people have an equal access to a high quality of life. Later in 2021, Autistica will launch a major campaign to dramatically improve the lives of autistic people. To ensure success, they are expanding their team, which will enable them to reach new audiences and maximise relationships with existing stakeholders.
As the new Corporate Partnerships Manager you will lead on two existing partnerships as well as take responsibility for new business pipeline and approaches.

To be successful, you will be able to demonstrate experience of securing corporate partnerships (£50,000+) from lead identification and pitching to deal closure, and meeting and exceeding financial targets. You will also have excellent writing skills and the ability to turn complex information into impactful, compelling corporate proposals. You will need to have an interest in autism and neurodiversity research, as well as the ability to take a proactive and creative approach to fundraising..
