The opportunity

Do you have a keen interest in corporate partnerships, stewardship and account management?

Can you develop and build new partnerships for one of the UK's largest health charities?

If so, you could be the Partnership Executive we are looking for! 

About the role 

In this role, you will be a key member of the Retail Partnerships team, playing an integral role in shaping and delivering our partnerships.

You will be responsible for managing a portfolio, as well as supporting the wider team to deliver pipeline aspirations for several strategic partnerships. You’ll make a real difference to the Retail Growth Strategy through the development of partnerships with a wide range of channels including Companies, Universities and Local Authorities to source donated stock.

Working with other team members, you will identify and develop opportunities, evaluate existing activities, project manage campaigns and provide day-to-day account management to ensure an excellent and engaging experience for our partners.

This is a 12-month fixed term contract covering family leave. 

Working arrangements

This is a dual location role, your working week will be split between home-working and one to two days per week in the office. We would be open to applications from candidates looking to be based at our London, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, Northampton or Edinburgh office. This will allow us to unlock our best work for our cause, blending the best of home and office working.

Here at the BHF we understand that you might need a little help balancing your work and home life. Many of our people work flexibly in many different ways. Please feel free to talk to us about the flexibility you may need; we are happy to explore what is possible for you and the role.

About you 

As our ideal candidate, you will have excellent communication and relationship building skills, able to influence and create buy in. Preferably with B2B or B2C experience, you are outcome-focused, with project management skills and great attention to detail.

A collaborative team player, you'll bring experience of working with clients to achieve outcomes, managing donor relationships and using databases for recording and reporting.

You’ll be able to keep our partners at the heart of everything we do by providing outstanding stewardship as well as having strong organisation skills to manage a varied and dynamic workload.

Fundraising experience in Corporate and/or Retail is desirable but not essential.
