We are excited to be working with Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking to find a new Corporate Partnerships Manager. This posts sits within their dynamic Development Department of 9 staff. You will be part of the Commercial Development team, but you will also work closely with the Institutional Development team.  

The charity has embarked on an ambitious income diversification programme to 2020, and increasing corporate income from a range of sources is an important part of their plans. They have been particularly working on three sources of income (strategic partnerships, local sponsorships, and joint bidding with ‘built environment sector’ consultancies), and expect these areas will be a core focus for you in the first instance, towards achieving their diversification goals. 

You will be the lead for corporate income and will have opportunities to design campaigns,  projects and brand partnerships for national events and programmes such as the consumer-focused National Walking Month <https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/what-you-can-do/campaigns/national-walking-month-2018> (£multi-million media value), the Walk to School programme <https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/what-we-do/walk-to-school> (which reaches 1m children), and a new corporate volunteering concept ‘’Walking Friends <https://www.livingstreets.org.uk/what-we-do/stories/wythall-walking-friends> which tackles social isolation amongst older people. You will also be a key relationship manager for flagship corporate partnerships and consultancies that wish to partner and bid with Living Streets for contracts and grants that will increase walking across the UK. 

You will be an experienced, confident fundraiser and relationship manager who can manage projects from conception to execution; including prospect research, outreach and negotiation.  You’ll be someone that accepts that part of the role will require graft, tenacity, and a readiness to pick up the phone to a list of prospects - but once you spark some interest you’ll be able to harness effective story-telling to present emotive narratives to brands and corporates that share Living Streets’ vision of a walking nation. 

Living Streets are a flexible employer- their Head office is in London, but this role can be based there or any of the other offices in Edinburgh, Cardiff or Newcastle.
