Does your proven corporate fundraising or business development experience include identifying, developing and securing lucrative corporate partnerships and working proactively to create, grow and manage a healthy pipeline of corporate prospects? Then join Shelter as Senior Corporate New Partnerships Managers and you could soon be putting your enviable skills and experience to excellent use at one of the UK’s leading charities.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
About the team
Part of a thriving Income Generation Directorate, our New Partnerships team contributes to the growth of Shelter’s voluntary income by securing new corporate relationships that support our mission. Over the last two years, we’ve been successful in building long term partnerships with corporate organisations such as Société Générale, Bank of England and Network Rail, who join our award-winning partnership portfolio that already include committed partners like Nationwide, B&Q and M&S.
About the role
The priority here will be to deliver new, high-value and long-term financial support from the private sector to help tackle the housing and homelessness emergency. Indeed, you’ll need to focus on securing six and seven figure partnerships via your excellent prospect stewardship. We’ll also rely on you to create tailored pitches and proposals that range from ‘charity of the year’, to commercial and policy-driven relationships, not to mention manage a New Partnerships Manager. And, you'll need do all this while at the same time demonstrating a huge drive and passion for our cause.
A natural ‘go getter’ who’s ambitious and determined in their pursuit of new partners, you have the interpersonal and influencing skills it takes to engage a range of stakeholders, both internally and externally, and are happy to ‘go the extra mile’ to secure the win. You’re also comfortable being part of a fast-paced, ambitious team where there are high expectations of work quality and output. Working independently, managing your own workload and making informed decisions regarding prospects and projects comes naturally to you too. What’s more, you’re used to producing and delivering engaging pitches and proposals that tailor ideas and messages to a corporate audience and great at managing the day-to-day delivery of complex relationships, projects and programmes.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
