Job description

We're looking for a creative and proactive corporate partnerships manager to join the friendly and dynamic team at Social Bite in our groundbreaking work breaking the cycle of homelessness.

About us: we are a charity and social enterprise working to end homelessness in Scotland and beyond.  Our vision is for everyone to have a safe place to call home.   Our pioneering initiatives (including an employment Academy, The Social Bite Village residential community and the UK's largest Housing First project) enable people to transform their own lives.  We also give out over 140,000 items of free food each year and connect 550 vulnerable people each week with good meals, support and opportunities.   Our profile soared when George Clooney visited one of our sandwich shops in 2015, since followed by the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio, Harry and Meghan and The Duchess of Cambridge.

About the role: we are looking for an experienced partnership manager to deliver and develop Social Bite’s existing portfolio of corporate partnerships, and lead on seeking out and securing valuable new ones.  The ideal candidate will be:

  • a motivated self-starter with initiative
  • excellent at building relationships
  • proactive in spotting new opportunities and following them through
  • commercially astute with an understanding of the world of social enterprise and charity

This is an established role but with a lot of potential for growth.  We have a proud track record of collaboration with Scotland’s most loved businesses, from event sponsorship to Charity of The Year and employee volunteering.  We are one of Deloitte’s One Million Futures partners and other well-known UK-wide or global supporters include RBS, Benugo, Schuh, Jacobs and Unilever.  You will get to work with a friendly, creative, dynamic and agile team, and be part of exciting, innovative and a rewarding campaigns - reporting into the Head of Partnerships and working closely with the Head of Fundraising, Head of Retail and talented colleagues across event and project management.

As a reflection of our full commitment to our values of inclusivity, equality and diversity, we will be operating a blind recruitment process whereby there are no names or ages of candidates given to the application review panel nor prior to the interview process, to remove the potential for unconscious bias.
