This is a unique opportunity to join the iconic WWF where the £6.5M corporate team has a track record in long-lasting and award-winning partnerships with big name brands. The Senior Corporate Development Manager will develop a refined list of big brand companies to approach and forge relationships with, with a view to setting up mutually beneficial, long-term corporate relationships. These will have value of course in fundraising and communications, as well as enabling the company to change the way they do business to have a positive impact on the natural world. 

The Senior Corporate Development Manager will report into the Head of Corporate Development and will line manage a Corporate Development Executive (there is also a Corporate Development Manager in the team).

These will be 6-7 figure, and crucially will involve conversations with director and board-level. The team is collaborative and shares leads, strategies and encouragement. 

Due to the high calibre of the partnerships being created in this team, the role would suit a confident, proactive, bright candidate who has the experience of winning high-value partnerships and the ability to learn and interest in the strategic business-change side. 

Key responsibilities: 

  • Lead and deliver engagement strategies for different organisational projects
  • Manage a personal portfolio of major corporate prospects, making cold approaches and forging relationships
  • Engage and build relationships with c-suite and director level contacts
  • Construct and deliver compelling pitches and proposals to secure support
  • Express key environmental issues and strategic priorities confidently at a senior level in meetings
