Appointed Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager

Lord's Taverners

The Lord’s Taverners are a community of people and organisations that collaborate to provide innovative, inclusive, and impactful cricket programmes, empowering young people with disabilities and from disadvantaged communities to develop the knowledge, skills, capabilities, and confidence required to overcome the challenges of inequality, raise their aspirations and reach their potential.

This is a brand new role, designed to maximise the charity’s focused growth area, corporate partnerships.

You will be responsible for growing and maintaining the existing portfolio of Corporate Partnerships, as well as developing pipeline of new prospects to find the next set of partners to work with the charity. By finding new and building on the existing pipeline of contacts with corporate foundations, to commercial partners and sponsorship opportunities linked to their charitable programmes and events programme, you will drive the corporate proposition forward and build on the success they have already had in this area of the income portfolio.

A recent hard-hitting ICEC (Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket) report namechecked the Lord’s Taverners as a charity to support in order to fight inequality in cricket – this is a huge opportunity to build on for corporate support.

With the portfolio already including the Berkeley Foundation, People’s Postcode Lottery and the England and Wales Cricket Board, there is a great foundation to build on. There is no pressure on unrestricted income, meaning corporate foundations funding specific projects is a significant opportunity for this post. This role will manage key partnerships, but primarily look to focus on developing new business.
