Partnerships and Development Manager
Sight loss is an urgent and growing challenge that can only be tackled in partnership. Partner relationships are integral to the future of RNIB and are vital for our new service delivery model and financial sustainability.
As Partnerships and Development Manager, you will plan, target and build strong relationships with internal and external partners that will position RNIB well in its work to influence funding programmes and secure awards for projects that enhance the lives of blind and partially sighted people.
You’ll bring experience of managing the process of developing funding applications to major grant awarding bodies and represent RNIB with external partners at all levels, managing significant levels of financial and reputational risk.
If you are motivated by partnership working and would like to make a difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people we would be delighted to hear from you.
In exchange we offer a competitive salary, a stimulating and supportive working environment and a benefits package including:
- 26 days holiday per year (plus bank holidays), which increase with service.
- Excellent pension schemes
