Head of Business Development, Corporate Partnerships
Unicef is an organisation with unparalleled reach and impact working to create a better world for children. We are seeking a Head of New Business to play a key role in securing and developing high-value, strategic and long-term partnerships.
Our vision is to be the partner of choice for the UK’s leading companies, and our Corporate Partnerships team has built a significant track record of sustainable income growth, managing partnerships with major UK companies, including Manchester United, ARM, EasyJet, and Unilever. In 2017 the team raised just under £14m.
We need a tenacious, resilient and creative leader to unlock the full value from our partnerships and effectively manage a team of experienced senior business managers, ensuring we meet our ambitious goals. You will bring a proven track record of developing and maintaining key strategic partnerships and commercial opportunities which incorporate co-creation, collaborative programmatic design and collective resource planning.
The ability to develop and secure new partnerships at the £1 million per year level is more important than your sector background, and we are open to applications from credible candidates from both the charity and private sectors. A strategic thinker, you will have high emotional intelligence and strong influencing skills, and will be adept at operating in complex and challenging organisations.
