We're the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and we're here for everyone affected by sight loss. Working for us means working for one of the UK's biggest charities, supporting almost two million people living with sight loss in the UK.
RNIB is leading the creation of a world where there are no barriers for people with sight loss. One of our key priorities is to ask people to see sight loss differently, reversing inaccurate perceptions and changing public behaviours so everyone expects equal participation from people with sight loss and the creation of a fully accessible society.
Purpose of job
Sight loss is an urgent and growing challenge that can only be tackled in partnership. Partner relationships are integral to the future of RNIB in corporate, statutory and charity sectors as well as the sight loss sector and are vital for our service delivery model and financial sustainability.
Our Senior New Partnerships Manager - Corporate Partnerships, will raise vital funds for RNIB's work to support blind and partially sighted people. The post holder will play a key role in the Corporate Partnerships management team by shaping and driving new business growth to achieve or exceed annual income targets.
In this role, you and your direct reports team will identify and secure income by developing new partnerships. You will attend meetings, networking events and deliver face to face presentations, and will represent RNIB at events and functions.
As a member of the Strategic Stakeholder Engagement Management Team, it will be essential that you promote a positive organisation wide culture and contribute to RNIB's corporate strategy which puts customers at its heart.
The ideal candidate will have senior level experience in developing strategic propositions fundraising and prospect stewardship, as well as writing tailored and innovative fundraising and new business proposals and partnership reports.
In exchange we offer a competitive salary, a stimulating and supportive working environment and a benefits package as detailed in the attached 'What We Offer' document.
