We can think of no better way to use your account management skills than in saving the planet. Earth’s nature is in decline and if we don’t reverse it our world will change forever. It is not too late to act, and you can play a pivotal by joining the Corporate Partnerships team as the Partnerships Manager at WWF UK.
With the scale of challenges facing our planet, we know we cannot succeed alone. Our success depends on effective partnerships with the game-changers, bold thinkers, innovators and disruptors who will join us in tackling the pressing threats facing our world. This is where your passion and talents come in.
As the Partnerships Manager, we want you to build partnerships to affect the policies and actions of business and governments alike to secure the best protection for nature. This will involve leading the day to day management and growth of our existing partnerships, ensuring that each one delivers to its objectives and maximising their strategic value. You will proactively develop strong relationships with partners across all levels and functions as well as network within WWF to make sure the delivery of partnerships is fully supported. You will also make sure we meet partner requirements by monitoring and evaluating activities and providing stakeholder reporting. You will help the team to take on new partnerships as required too.
Of graduate calibre, you will have a proven track record in account management and building lucrative long-term partnerships in the commercial or charity sector. Naturally warm and enthusiastic, you will thrive managing multiple projects and achieving success by engaging the commitment of others. You will possess a proven track record for driving income and delivering results alongside strong negotiation and diplomacy skills. An excellent communicator, you will be effective at networking and presenting too.
Knowledge of key issues in conservation and sustainability is highly desirable.
