Corporate Partnerships Manager – Midlands


The NSPCC’s mission is to end cruelty to children. This is what drives their income generation team to get out there and bring in the funds needed to protect children and prevent abuse.

This largely home-based role is based in the Regional Corporate Partnerships team, which is one of the longest established, regionally based corporate teams in the third sector, with a track record of working with some of the largest and most dynamic businesses in the country.

NSPCC believe that partnerships with companies are one of the best ways to raise money, reach millions of people, and engage the UK public with their work. They want to develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships that put companies at the heart of what the organisation does and simultaneously meet commercial needs.

As Corporate Partnerships Manager – Midlands, you’ll be supported by the Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager (your line manager) and work alongside two Corporate Partnership Managers overseen by Head of Regional Corporate Partnerships. You will manage a varied and exciting portfolio of new and long-standing partners across the Midlands, including supporting on a 7-figure partnership (focused primarily on Midlands region). You will also focus on identifying, developing and winning new corporate support through Charity of the Year, commercial and strategic opportunities.
