2 x New Corporate Partnerships Managers

£45,000-£50,000 dependent on experience

Home-based with weekly / biweekly virtual meetings with the Chief Executive

Role description

The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation is seeking two creative, ambitious new business specialists to build on the momentum of recent, high profile corporate partnerships.

You’ll be securing corporate funding for peerless food allergy research that will ultimately enable food retailers to better label their produce and sell more products to an ever more allergen-aware customer base.

You’ll be targeting people at senior level with a unique proposition that combines long-term business opportunity with changing the lives of people living with life-threatening allergies.

This is a pioneering opportunity to raise money for essential, underfunded research into severe allergies that impact the lives of millions of people.

We’re looking for candidates with a strong track record in influencing, networking and negotiating at senior level and securing significant corporate income via strategic, mutually beneficial partnerships.

If you’re a creative new business superstar who enjoys identifying prospects, crafting cases for support, working with senior internal stakeholders to open doors and pitching for strategic income at senior level, we’d love to hear from you.

Existing corporate partnerships

Natasha’s Foundation believes that the problem of food allergy can be solved by food businesses. By supporting research to understand the causes, preventions and treatment of food allergies, food businesses will reduce the risk of individuals unknowingly eating an allergen that could kill them. They also increase the number of individuals able to safely eat their products. This is the foundation for forming strategic partnerships.

Natasha’s Foundation has already established national strategic partnerships with Tesco and Co-op to raise funds for allergy research.

In June 2020 Tesco agreed to give 10p from each sale of Tesco ‘Free From’ products for one week. This was thanks to the promotion of Natasha’s Foundation and through the Foundation’s supporter, Martin Lewis, of moneysavingexpert.com, who shared the promotion with his millions of subscribers. Tesco is running the promotion again in June 2021 and Natasha’s Foundation will also feature in the Clubcard magazine, the most widely read food magazine in the UK.

From 26 April to 2 May 2021 Co-op started the first of a three-year partnership donating 10% from the sale of every single Co-op ‘Free From’ product, sold in all its stores.

These partnerships were established at the highest level with buy in from UK CEOs and match the need to fund allergy research with the increasing demand for ‘Free From’ products.

The New Corporate Partnership Manager roles will build on the established foundation of these strategic partnerships, reaching other companies and especially food business organisations. The food industry is enormous and there are thousands of food producers and retailers of every type. Similarly there are hundreds of restaurant chains and other eateries.

This position is a home-based role with weekly / biweekly virtual meetings (as needed) with the Chief Executive.

Future travel to meetings into London and other places across the UK will be required from time to time.  Expenses will be paid in line with the charity’s Expenses Policy.

Closing date: Monday 21 June 2021
