Job description

Since YGAM was founded five years ago, we have quickly established ourselves as a leading educational charity which builds digital resilience in young and vulnerable people, by training professionals to raise awareness of the potential of gaming and gambling-related harm; making resources available for parents and delivering impactful student campaigns with partner universities. Last year alone, we have reached approximately 364,918 young people, students and parents and we have collaborated with almost 2,488 educational organisations (schools, colleges, universities and charities) to deliver our programmes.

YGAM are incredibly proud to be working with all stakeholders in this space, from the gambling & gaming operators who make products available to the public; education professionals who support young people & students learning; the criminal justice sector; partner universities; public health; third sector organisations; sports clubs; Local Authorities and young people, students and parents themselves.

It is a very busy time in YGAM currently and we have a unique opportunity for an experienced, hands-on Head of Corporate Partnerships fundraiser to join the YGAM team to foster new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnerships and income from the gaming, tech & mobile sectors. This post is being offered as a full-time position with a salary of £38,000 - £40,000 (plus London Weighting if applicable).  It is a home-based role and you will be required to travel on a regular basis as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

The principal purpose of the post is to devise and implement a successful programme of corporate fundraising securing at least £50,000 and one high-profile CSR partnership in your first six-months.  As a member of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) you will assume overall responsibility of income generation for the charity as your knowledge of YGAM and our social purpose increases. The role will be demanding, highly rewarding and best suited to an experienced corporate fundraiser who wants to grow and develop their career within corporate fundraising, taking their experience to a national level. Being highly organised, having an absolute eye for detail and the drive and ambition to make this opportunity a success are critical qualities.

will be invited to attend a face-to-face interview which is planned to take place on
Tuesday 11 August 2020 in London. Depending on Covid-19 restrictions this might be a video conference
interview instead and there will be a pre-interview task for you to complete if shortlisted. Please ensure you can attend on this date before applying. YGAM are proud to be recognised as an Investors in People organisation, guaranteeing you a purposeful job with plenty of training and career opportunities for the right person.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you
