Does your corporate fundraising/commercial business development and marketing experience include delivering presentations, pitches or public speaking and achieving six figure income targets? Then join Shelter as a Senior Partnership Manager and you could soon be managing one of our Corporate team's largest partnerships to engage employees and customers alike.

 

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.

 

Our mature fundraising programme has enjoyed continuous year-on-year diversity and growth. Currently, the directorate generates over £35m gross income, of which a high percentage is unrestricted, giving us an exceptional level of investment flexibility. High Value Partnerships covers Major Donors, Trusts & Foundations, Legacies and Corporate fundraising, while our Corporate Partnerships team is split between New Partnerships and Partnership Management. The latter is responsible for managing and developing long term corporate partnerships. It's here that we need your fundraising expertise.

 

About the Role
As Senior Partnership Manager, you'll be a key player in delivering on our Corporate Partnerships fundraising strategy, retaining long term support from the private sector and growing your portfolio to help tackle the housing emergency. You'll also have a lead role in the management and development of our high-profile, multi-faceted partnerships and help drive the team's strategic priorities. Finding innovative ways to engage businesses and identifying opportunities to maximise income from the private sector will be important aspects of the role too, as will line managing two direct reports and supporting the growth of smaller partnerships within our portfolio.

 

About you
A great opportunity to make a real impact for the UK's leading housing and homelessness organisation, you'll need relevant fundraising or commercial business development experience that includes identifying and developing new income-generating opportunities. You'll also need a strong understanding of commercial and financial principles and a proven ability to apply them to improve business performance. Adept at setting objectives and managing performance, you have excellent interpersonal skills too. Indeed, engaging a range of stakeholders and conveying your ideas to them succinctly and persuasively comes naturally to you, as does achieving your targets.

 

Benefits
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.

 

Safeguarding is everyone's business. Shelter is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.

 

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.

 

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.

 

We will be sharing the interview questions with candidates shortlisted for an interview 3 days before the interview.

 

Shelter does not accept unsolicited CVs from external recruitment agencies nor accept the fees associated with them.
