Business Development Executive 

Every day brings new challenges for our client. Every day, 618 seriously ill children from across the UK arrive for life-changing treatments. Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, our client can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Their staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you. 

Our client exists to fundraise on behalf of the hospital, and needs to raise at least £100 million every year to support the hospital’s pioneering and life-saving work. The Corporate Partnerships team plays a vital role in this, raising millions of pounds every year through the successful delivery of an impressive portfolio of corporate partnerships. The team has the benefit of a clear strategy, an inspiring cause, a fantastic charity brand, incredible networks and leverage through an active Corporate Partnerships Board and a reputation for being one of the strongest corporate teams in the sector.
