Prospectus is delighted to be partnering exclusively with National Numeracy to support their search for a new Partnerships Director. This is a major new appointment for the charity, which will play an instrumental role in its strategic development over the coming years. The charity is looking for a corporate fundraising and strategic partnerships specialist to join their creative, proactive and passionate team.
National Numeracy is an independent charity established in 2012 that aims to enable everyone across the UK to be confident and competent in using numbers and data in order to make good decisions in their daily life. The organisation has three key areas of focus; raising awareness, improving numeracy and improving communication of numbers and data.
As the Partnerships Director, you will manage the organisation's existing strategic corporate partners including designing cultivation plans and will also identify and negotiate future partnerships that align with the charity's strategic aims and long-term sustainability.
