The Role: 

The Senior Partnerships Executive will be responsible for leading on and significantly growing our corporate partnerships across our diverse portfolio, exploring and maximising opportunities to raise funds for, and awareness, of our vital work supporting and championing hospice care across the UK.  

As an experienced Account Manager, you will be able to spot opportunities across all of Hospice UK’s work to maximise these partnerships, whether that’s adding strategic value to our fundraising with Aspire Pharma, diversifying our work with Co-op Bank, supporting our longest partnership with the National Garden Scheme, helping Dignity Funerals to grow our Dying Matters Community Grants programme, or helping to launch our new partnership with People’s Postcode Lottery. You will be responsible for a portfolio of corporate partnerships to the value of £1.2m.

We are looking for someone who is an expert in relationship management, has experience of managing high-value partnerships, can evidence partnership and client growth, understands how to engage employees, can write propositions and is experienced in project management. Our corporate partnerships are diverse, requiring bespoke management across the portfolio. 

We are a growing team in Corporate Development, with ambitious plans to grow quickly, diversify our corporate income and develop new revenue streams and programmes. Having recently remodelled our New Business function, this is your chance to lead and go on to grow our Partnership Management team. We’d like you to be an ambitious and strategic-thinking individual with strong partnership management experience, and the ideas and appetite to diversify and grow our existing high profile relationships.

The Team: 

There are currently eight members of the Corporate Development team, and 20 in total across our Income Generation and Grants Directorate. Our knowledge is rich and our experience is diverse; from third sector to private sector, from sales to events and from wellbeing to sustainability. The team are based all over the UK, including London, Bristol and Peterborough. 

“It’s an absolute pleasure working for Hospice UK. I particularly like the size of the charity with it being big enough to make a huge difference whilst being small enough to be heard as individuals. Our team often looks for fun and creative ways to collaborate in work and bond outside of the office too.” Mike, Senior New Business Executive 

Hospice UK: 

Hospice UK is the national charity for hospice and palliative care. We provide support, leadership, expertise and advocacy for over 200 member hospices across the UK. 

Our membership offer for hospices and their staff teams includes online resources, newsletters, conferences, networks, clinical and advocacy programmes. We bring hospices and sector partners together to discuss new ideas and collaborate in new ways, sharing good practice and celebrating the brilliant and innovative work that happens every day in hospices around the country.
