Appointed Corporate Partnerships Manager – Key Account Manager


Centrepoint is the leading charity for homeless young people aged 16-25. The charity aims to give homeless young people a future and want to end youth homelessness by 2037.

Centrepoint operate nationally, with bases in London, Manchester, the North East and Yorkshire, and support nearly 13,000 vulnerable young people a year by providing accommodation, teaching valuable life skills, tackling their physical and mental health issues and working with them to get them into education or employment.

The Partnerships Manager will be responsible for managing Centrepoint’s new multi-year strategic partnership with Coventry Building Society – the largest multi-year partnership in their corporate portfolio to date, and a transformational partnership for Centrepoint and the young people they work with.
