The Fairtrade Foundation is recruiting for a Senior Partnership Manager to drive forward Fairtrade’s work with our commercial partners. As a key member of the Commercial Partnerships team you will be responsible for working with businesses in the UK and globally to drive more impact for Fairtrade producers and workers. You’ll be working on a daily basis with Fairtrade’s strategic partners in the FMCG sector to develop new and exciting impact-led initiatives, helping contribute to the improved livelihoods of farmers and workers across the world. You’ll also be helping Fairtrade develop new commercial partnerships, proactively networking and prospecting to grow business support for Fairtrade in the UK.
You’ll need to be confident and tenacious, with experience of key account management/ partnership development in the FMCG sector, a good understanding of sustainability, and excellent influencing or sales skills. You will have a proven track record in project management and internal cross functional working. If you have experience of ethical trade and certification, that’s great, but it’s not essential.
