Living Planet Centre Woking, Surrey, GU21 4LL with some flexibility
With the scale of the challenge facing nature there are few roles as important as this. Our mission to halt and reverse nature's decline is a big ask. We know we cannot succeed alone, which is why we will need game-changing, sector-leading, partnerships. This is where your expertise comes in as Director of Partnerships. We want you to work with businesses to deliver amazing partnerships that will deliver change on the ground, shift government policies and engage with the public. This is your chance to join a charity with ambitious growth plans to achieve our mission.
As our Director of Partnerships, you will come with an entrepreneurial mindset and a clear vision to head up the implementation of an overarching partnerships strategy and plan. This will involve leading and inspiring your team to develop our approach to corporate engagement and partnership as well as secure and build partnerships to deliver ambitious income targets. You will develop a high performing team, set direction as well as manage budgets and deliver financial reporting. You will also help establish a strong pipeline and portfolio of partnership and engagement opportunities as well as build relationships at senior level with new and existing partners. You will form strong links across WWF UK and the global WWF network to ensure we maximise all openings to deliver against our mission too.
Of graduate calibre you will have a track record in visionary strategy development, corporate engagement and partnerships. You will have extensive expertise in developing and overseeing corporate sustainability strategies as well as securing and growing partnerships. Critically you will be experienced at achieving six-figure financial targets and delivering wider value for an organisation.
Comfortable managing budgets and building high performing teams, you will be effective at managing relationships at senior level. You will favour a collaborative working style and possess outstanding interpersonal, influencing and communication skills. Of course, you will be able to demonstrate a commitment to the natural world and WWF’s core mission too.
