Day-to-day, you will research, identify and secure meetings with prospective corporate partners and develop partnerships and relationships with community groups and local businesses that generate sustainable income. You will deliver planned partnership activity, events and communications as well as produce regular stakeholder reporting. You will also drive improvement in supporter journeys and share best practice. Important will be the ability to use insight and analysis to inform, prioritise recommendations and make evidence-based decisions.
