With the demands for our welfare services rising due to the pandemic, our corporate partnerships are more important than ever, helping us raise money and awareness nationally. During this year’s lockdowns, our corporate partners have helped us reach new audiences and find new ways for the public to support our vital work. Next year, the Legion celebrates its 100th anniversary as a charity and a century of support for the Armed Forces community. With lots of exciting activities planned already, our partnerships will be exceptionally busy, so we will need a proficient corporate fundraiser to help us bring these plans to life.
With a tailored and creative approach, the Legion’s Corporate Partnerships team builds and develops mutually beneficial relationships with some of the UK’s most successful companies. Through a growing portfolio of partnerships, we secure a huge range of benefits for the Armed Forces community, whilst delivering tangible commercial results for our business partners.
As Corporate Partnerships Officer, you will need to balance three key priorities: supporting an account manager with the daily delivery of a number of major partnerships; helping the wider team with its administrative tasks and working on critical collaborative projects; and taking on direct management responsibility for one or more of our mid value partnerships.
You will need to have an eye for detail and an organised approach to deal effectively with complex organisations. You should have excellent communication skills and be able to build strong relationships with partners and colleagues alike and be keen to learn from them. You should be
motivated and self-sufficient, though equally committed to working collaboratively as part of a busy team.
The role is primarily office based in London, however, due to COVID 19, you will start working from home. This role would likely begin remotely and then follow government and organisational guidelines on returning to the office.
