Job description

Do you want to play a key role in an organisation which stands up for children? Join us as Partnerships Manager and devise and implement creative strategies in order to strengthen and grow our corporate partnerships.

In our Partnerships and Philanthropy department we support Save the Children's ambitious vision for 2030 to ensure every last child grows up healthy, educated and protected. We aim to deliver income and brand value to support organisational priorities as well as securing investment, influence and wider transformational value through strategic long term partnerships on a national and global scale.

We are seeking an ambitious Partnerships Manager to manage key workstreams with two of our largest partners, GlaxoSmithKline and Unilever. As Partnerships Manager you will be responsible for managing key business partnerships, maximising all potential income streams and opportunities to maximise value and impact. You will devise creative and innovative strategies including fundraising campaigns with partners, liaising with corporate contacts and building and developing relationships with key stakeholders. You will monitor income, expenditure and resources, making sure that each partnership meets and exceeds income and non-financial targets. In addition you will:

  • Steward key external and internal stakeholders and build strong relationships across teams to ensure programmes are managed efficiently and well-coordinated
  • Develop detailed, tailored plans that maximise income in the short term and secure long term growth
  • Prepare presentations, proposals, plans and reports as necessary
  • Effectively solve problems and manage risk to ensure achievement of targets

The successful candidate will bring excellent communication, project management, organisational and relationship-building skills, as well as a strong commercial outlook and understanding of the private sector to help grow our partnerships, with a track record of personally delivering to defined goals. You may have gained this through experience of working on corporate partnerships within a charity/NGO, or through transferrable experience of working in the private sector.

  • Excellent project management, planning and prioritising skills to manage a varied and pressurised workload while focusing on the "big picture"
  • A good understanding of commercial and financial principles to improve performance
  • A good working knowledge of MS Word, Excel and ability to use databases for recording and reporting
  • Knowledge and understanding of international development and programming

At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change. Because every child should be able to make their mark on their world, and help to build a better future. We look forward to hearing from you.

Please note - whilst this role is advertised as office based, Save The Children UK will remain a remote-working organisation until at least 30 June 2021.


We particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, LGBT+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds, as these are underrepresented at Save the Children UK.

Closing date: 24th January 2021
