Do you have corporate fundraising or business development experience, the ability to think strategically and bring ideas to life via written proposals and pitches? Then join Shelter in this key role as New Partnerships Manager and help to deliver our Corporate Partnerships Fundraising strategy by securing high value, long-term support from the private sector to tackle the housing emergency.
About the team
Part of a thriving Income Generation Directorate, our New Partnerships team contributes to the growth of Shelter’s voluntary income by securing new corporate relationships that support our mission. Over the last two years, we’ve been successful in building long term partnerships with corporate organisations such as Société Générale, Bank of England and Network Rail, who join our award-winning partnership portfolio that already include committed partners like Nationwide, B&Q and M&S.
About the role
Join us, and you could soon be using your creativity and expertise in relationship building to identify and secure new five and six-figure partnerships that will help us achieve our ambitious goals. You will do this through excellent prospect stewardship, creating tailored pitches and proposals and shaping, testing and bringing ideas to market. We’ll also rely on you to work closely with the Head of New Partnerships to contribute to a culture of high performance and the delivery and development of the team strategy.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
You’re a natural ‘go getter’ who is ambitious and determined in your pursuit of new partnerships and happy to go that extra mile to secure the win. You’ll be comfortable working in a fast-paced, ambitious team, creating, growing and managing a healthy pipeline of prospects and you’re confident creating and delivering succinct, persuasive and engaging pitches and proposals to corporate audiences. The ability to work independently, managing your workload and making informed decisions is also essential, as is responding to feedback/challenges in the moment and the ability to influence a range of internal and external stakeholders.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
