About Us:
Together for Short Lives is the UK children’s palliative care charity. We work to make sure the 99,000 seriously ill children and their families can make the most of every moment they have together – whether that’s for years, months or only hours.
We work with families and the brilliant people and services that support them – in hospitals, in children’s hospices and in the community – to ensure that children and families get the support they need.

About the Role:

We are seeking a Corporate Partnerships Manager to join our Fundraising team, managing and delivering partnerships with high-profile companies that raise vital funds for our work. The portfolio is a mix of long-term, established partnerships; and a new 7-figure 3-year partnership that the postholder will be instrumental in setting up. This role is a great opportunity for someone with experience of account management in corporate fundraising to work with household name brands on award winning accounts, and to be responsible for shaping and delivering our next multi-year partnership.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide exceptional account management to a select group of strategically important corporate partners.
  • Maximise planned income from these partners, exploiting their full fundraising potential and retaining accounts.
  • Generate new income streams within partnerships, working proactively to grow these key relationships.
  • Support the Fundraising Executive to develop implement a focused calendar of fundraising events specifically for corporate partners.

About You:

  • Proven experience in corporate partnerships, CSR, or related fields.
  • Exceptional communication, negotiation, and relationship management skills.
  • Tenacious, creative and innovative, experience of leading projects across complex organisations and teams.
  • Willingness to travel across the UK as needed.
