The Fairtrade Foundation’s vision is of a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood and develop their full potential. This is a pivotal time to be joining the Foundation as we continue to push for even greater impact bringing the benefits of trade for marginalised farmers and workers.
We are recruiting for a Partnerships Manager to lead on the relationship management of some of our key commercial partners. This is a crucial role as building successful partnerships with commercial organisations is an essential part of achieving our goal.
The main focus of the role will be to build relationships with current Fairtrade partners and to seek out prospective new partnership with the fundamental aim of growing the market. You will need to maximise the marketing and communication of Fairtrade values through brand relationships and ensure Fairtrade’s position as a leader in sustainability is demonstrated through our commercial partnerships.
You’ll need to be able to work autonomously and flexibly, with demonstrable success in independently managing key accounts in the FMCG, OOH or related sector. You will also have a proven history of consistently meeting challenging targets and proven selling, influencing and negotiation skills.
