Young Epilepsy is the children and young people’s epilepsy charity. What sets us apart is our focus on giving a voice and a platform to people who have the condition, so that we are able to learn from them and support changes in societal understanding, attitudes and responsiveness - providing higher quality health, education and family support services as a result. Increasingly, we are developing our digital platforms and on-line offers to children and families.
We fund pioneering research into epilepsy in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital and the UCL Institute of Child Health. We run a special education school and college in Lingfield, Surrey and also provide health and residential care services.
About the Role
The Corporate Partnerships Manager will be a key member of the fundraising team responsible for developing and implementing a successful programme of corporate fundraising to reach an agreed annual target. This will include managing our current corporate supporters, maximising their potential and securing new corporate support for projects and events in FY 20/21.
You will work closely with the Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships and colleagues across Fundraising and Communications to promote and fund Young Epilepsy’s national youth support programmes and research projects.
With significant experience of working in a target-driven environment and proven success of fundraising from companies within a third sector organisation, you will be able to work independently, have first class communication skills and a proven ability to develop good working relationships with external funders, trustees and colleagues.
We offer an attractive range of benefits including generous annual leave, occupational pension scheme, subsidised dining room (in Lingfield), eyecare vouchers, gym membership options (on and off-site) and Perkbox, giving you access to nationwide benefits
