Interviewing Corporate fundraising roles with Tommy’s

Tommy’s believes that pregnancy complications and baby loss should not be seen as ‘bad luck’. Through their four research centres, specialist antenatal care clinics, pregnancy information services and campaigning work, they support people who refuse to accept that a baby’s death is ‘just one of those things’.

We are delighted to be partnering with Tommy’s on two key appointments: Head of Corporate Partnerships (£50,000 to £53,500) and Corporate Partnerships Manager (£38,500 to £41,500).

Introduction from the Deputy Director of Partnerships and Philanthropy

Tommy’s has an incredible track record of funding life-changing research that is truly making pregnancy and birth safer and saving babies’ lives. Backed by a new strategy that provides our focus for the next ten years, we’ve also been clear on our commitment to tackling healthcare disparities and inequities for those most at risk.

For me this combination of clear direction and commitment to tackling inequality was the motivation to join Tommy’s last year to ensure that our fundraising continues to power our ability to meet these goals. We have exciting opportunities ahead and I’m looking for a new Head of Corporate Partnerships and a Partnerships Manager to help us supercharge our reach, income and impact with businesses.

The Head of Corporate Partnerships is a hands-on role that will allow you to keep fundraising, whilst also leading the corporate partnerships strategy. Leading a team of four, you’ll be ambitious about strengthening team capacity and supporting your team to develop in role. You’ll be comfortable moving things forward at pace and bringing others together to turn ideas into action.

The Partnerships Manager will lead on the majority of our portfolio, managing partnerships up to £70k pa. There are a number of upcoming renewal opportunities, and a new business pipeline of exciting new potential partnerships.

At Tommy’s, you’ll be supported with the freedom and flexibility to bring your ideas to life in a partnerships programme that will truly help our mission to make pregnancy and birth safer.

Thank you for your interest in our team and I am looking forward to receiving your application!

Deputy Director of Partnerships and Philanthropy


Tommy’s is here for every baby, parent and parent-to-be. Whoever you are or wherever you live, everyone should be able to have a healthy pregnancy and baby and we want to bring about change so fewer babies die during pregnancy and birth.

Black women, Asian women and women from other diverse ethnic groups are currently the most vulnerable and high-risk when it comes to pregnancy outcomes. Workplaces that welcome parents and pregnant people and are diverse in age, ethnicity, gender identity, marital or civil partnership status, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation, physical or mental abilities are better and more innovative organisations and more representative of those we seek to help.

Tommy’s embraces and harnesses the talents, skills and experiences of everyone who wants to help us in our mission to make pregnancy and birth safer for all. We are determined to be an organisation that truly values what all people can contribute to our cause and passionate about helping everyone who needs our advice and support.

Apply for a role

Please note, Head of Corporate Partnerships applications close on Friday 10 May and Corporate Partnerships Manager applications close on Thursday 16 May.

QuarterFive and our clients know fundraising could better reflect the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the people the charity sector supports. We encourage individuals with relevant skills and experience to apply for roles regardless of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief. If you think you meet some of the criteria for a role and would like to discuss how your other experience might transfer, please ask us for a chat. We’re here to support you. Appointments will be made on merit alone and we will gladly make reasonable adjustments to always ensure a fair process.
