Are you an inspirational leader who is passionate about securing high-value new corporate partnerships that make the world a happier, safer place for dogs and the people who love them! Yes? Well, we’d love to hear from you!

At Dogs Trust, we’re on a mission to significantly increase income, influence and awareness for our work in the UK and overseas through corporate partnerships. That’s why we’re recruiting for an experienced Deputy Head of Corporate Development who will be responsible for leading the Corporate Development team, and developing and delivering an ambitious income growth strategy that meets and exceeds income targets through securing new corporate partnerships.

About You:

We’re looking for someone with fantastic leadership skills to build a robust and diverse pipeline that secures new six-seven figure partnerships that deliver both money and mission for Dogs Trust in the UK and our global work through Mission Rabies and the Worldwide Veterinary Service. You will have extensive experience in corporate partnerships, and a proven track record in identifying and winning high-value partnerships that have a commercial and a strategic focus. You will be responsible for identifying and managing a high-value prospect portfolio of your own, as well as overseeing team income generation activities.

About Dogs Trust:

We’ve got big growth ambitions as a team, and as an organisation. And we’ve been helping dogs and their owners for a long time – over 130 years in fact! We’ve found forever homes for hundreds of thousands of our faithful friends, dramatically reduced numbers being put to sleep, and helped to all but eliminate strays from the UK’s streets. We've also established universal microchipping, campaigned tirelessly on important issues such as puppy smuggling and grown influence and impact on the international stage. But we know there’s so much more to do. There are still millions of dogs - and people who love dogs - around the world who need support.

When you join our team, you’ll have access to a comprehensive benefits package, which includes excellent annual leave, Perkbox and pension allowances, and you will you join a team of highly professional and driven colleagues in a brilliant upbeat and collaborative environment, all with a genuine passion for dog welfare.
