Corporate Partnerships Officer

Closing date: Monday 24 January, 9am

About Us

We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. 

Right now, an estimated 500,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of and for which there is no known cure. Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these diseases, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But they're not alone. We're here for them. And we're not going anywhere until we've beaten Crohn's and Colitis for good.  

The role

£29,000 - £33,000 per annum depending on experience
Place of work: Flexible

In this role you will be generating new income from companies, helping to develop strategic corporate partnerships and be effective at pitching and presenting at a senior level.  You’ll work across all partnerships, including Charity of the Year, pharmaceutical partnerships, sponsorship and CRM opportunities, in order to develop and build high value relationships and increase engagement for long-term support.  You will also be responsible for managing certain existing corporate partner relationships and providing first class day-to-day account stewardship.

About you

The perfect candidate will be experienced and competent in corporate fundraising as you will be responsible for supporting the Corporate Fundraising team to diversify our current corporate portfolio. We will also consider applications from candidates with relevant transferable skills in account management and new business acquisition. You will have excellent communication and organisational and time management skills.  A driven individual, you will be tenacious, ambitious and resilient to enable you to maximise income from opportunities and your enthusiasm, motivation and networking skills to build excellent relationships will be valuable in this area.

If you like the sound of this position and think you have what we are looking for then we would love to hear from you.

The future

The charity is at a really exciting point. We are in excellent financial health and moving to a new strategy which will give you the chance to put a personal stamp on the actions we are taking to improve the quality of life for people with Crohn’s and Colitis. 

Our location

We are based in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, so we are easily accessible by road and rail. But one thing we have learned from the pandemic, is that we are able to work very effectively from home. In this role, there is plenty of scope for doing that although there will be times when you will need to be at face-to-face meetings. It is possible therefore you could live almost anywhere in the country. If you want to be considered for the role but are worried about location, talk to us – it may work!
