More Partnership is a remarkable group of fundraising and development professionals, who have chosen to work together in order to advance the great ambitions of our client organisations. Our consulting partners bring a rich and complementary mix of experience, perspectives, and passions, but our single-minded commitment to being the best at what we do is shared by all. We’re an employee-owned company, with an inclusive, respectful, and high-trust culture, and we are proud of our part in changing the world – and making it better.
We are much more than simply a fundraising consultancy. The rare combination of experience, insight, and practical advice that we bring allows us to support organisations of every size, on five continents, and across a wide range of sectors. We help organisations to understand their opportunity, fundraise more effectively, and make change happen. In practice, this can mean working to a range of outcomes: from helping clients to set direction, to training teams, making progress with projects, or evaluating performance.
Having recently moved to being employee-owned, we want to appoint a Non-Executive Director to work with our Board and partners, helping us to ensure we’re always making strong decisions and developing a complete understanding of our operating environment as we draft our new strategy (scheduled for April 2022). A skilled communicator and facilitator, you’ll ensure that we hear all views in complex discussions, and that we make considered and collective judgements as a result. We’ll value your deft ‘sense-checking’ lines of questioning: discursive rather than prescriptive, you’ll ensure that the quality of our governance always attains the high level to which we aspire. An early and important contribution will be supporting us as we respond to the emerging opportunities of employee ownership.
It’s likely that you will have an extensive professional track record in one or more of finance, HR/OD, law, or diversity & inclusion, and a nuanced grasp of leadership coaching would also be an asset. You’ll find us to be optimistic people, with high levels of tenacity, intellectual curiosity, rigour, and humility; we’re always learning, and always able to bring our full selves to the work we do. In return we can guarantee you’ll be stretched in ways you won’t expect, shape outcomes that will be deeply rewarding, and will have a sizeable amount of fun along the way. Most important of all, you will make a decisive contribution to advancing great ambitions as we support our clients to make the world a better place.
We are consciously engaging with improving our diversity, and we want to integrate a range of world-views, life experience, and habits of thought and action that enrich and strengthen our team. Applications are strongly encouraged from women and those who are Black, Asian, or from a minority ethnic community, as well as people with a range of socio-economic backgrounds or experience of disability.
