Fundraising Manager – Corporate Partnerships
Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership is a leading East London-based charity that bridges the gap between education and the world of work.
For almost 30 years, we have worked in partnership with schools and businesses to provide fair and equal opportunities that enable young people to broaden their horizons and help them achieve their aspirations.
Our corporate partnership model is now in its third year of success. We’ve traditionally worked closely with corporate business partners from City industries such as law, banking and insurance, but we are eager to attract partners from new industry sectors, grow our partnership numbers and increase the income our charity receives from these partnerships.
As such, we’re looking for a Fundraising Manager to join us in early March 2020 on a 12 month fixed-term contract, which has the potential to extend based on performance.
- Salary of up to £40,000 per annum DOE
- 25 days’ holiday plus Christmas shutdown and Bank Holidays
- Great office location
- Friendly and inclusive environment
- Early finish on Fridays
If you have experience of growing the client base of charitable organisations, this is a superb opportunity to drive the success of a charity that is addressing inequality and improving social mobility for young people.
We want all young people to learn more, do more and become more – because it is our firm belief that educated communities will become thriving communities. If you want to help us achieve our vision, this is the role for you.
As the Fundraising Manager, you will attract and secure long-term corporate partnerships for our charity.
In this important role, you’ll generate new corporate leads, secure work experience placements for our students through these leads and increase the conversion success rate of our current corporate approaches.
During your contract, the partnerships you secure should amount to new income of over £150,000 for our charity.
Your duties will include:
- Researching companies and approaching them to join our partnerships
- Targeting companies from the media, tech, digital, hospitality, medical and construction/housing sectors
- Helping to secure work experience placements that will most benefit a student’s future
- Ensuring consistent and coherent branding and messaging across all business engagement
To join us as our Fundraising Manager, you will need:
- At least three years’ experience of working in charitable partnerships, sales or recruitment, expanding their client base
- Previous fundraising experience, including dealing with corporate clients
- The ability to generate placements from newly sourced leads
Ideally, you will have an understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility and why volunteers are key for business, but this is not essential.
Other organisations may call this role Corporate Partnerships Manager, Business Development Manager, BDM, Client Relationship Manager, Key Account Manager, Charity Partnerships Manager, Corporate Fundraising Manager, or Corporate Fundraiser.
As part of the application, you will be asked to submit a CV and covering letter to Megan Hunter, our Deputy Director. The covering letter will be the last question of the application process. Your covering letter must address how you have the ability to perform the main tasks of this role.
The initial interview process will consist of a panel interview lasting approximately one hour. This will include a task which will be explained to candidates who are invited to interview.
