Partnership Manager

Job description
As a Partnerships Manager, you’ll have the amazing opportunity to work with the most critical partnerships we need in the fight for our world. Nature is in decline and if we don’t reverse it our world will change forever. It is not too late to act, and you can play a pivotal role by joining the Partnerships team at WWF UK.

With the scale of challenges facing our planet, we know we cannot succeed alone. The success of our mission depends on developing innovative and game-changing partnerships that will tackle the critical threats facing our world.

We have incredible award-winning, long-term partnerships with some of the world’s biggest businesses, and we need your skills and drive to maximise their potential, through delivering ambitious income, influence and advocacy objectives.

As Partnership Manager you will support one of WWF’s largest and most impactful partnerships, leading the day-to-day management of key projects to deliver excellent partnership management. We want you to ensure your partnership delivers its core objectives and that we capitalise on its strategic value through securing income, influence, communication and impact.

This will involve developing strong relationships with corporate partners across all levels and functions as well as with internal colleagues to support the delivery of the partnership objectives. Important will be the ability to develop effective monitoring, evaluation and reporting. You will also support the delivery and growth of the partnership as required.

Of graduate calibre, you will have a proven track record in account management and building a wide range of long-term partnerships in the commercial or charity sector. Naturally warm and enthusiastic, you will thrive at managing multiple projects and achieving success by engaging the commitment of others. You will possess a proven track record for driving income and delivering results alongside strong negotiation and diplomacy skills. An excellent communicator, you will be effective at networking and presenting too.

Experience in a corporate fundraising role would be an advantage. Knowledge of key issues in conservation and sustainability and business trends is highly desirable.

If you have the skills to raise our voice, enhance our profile and increase our presence to help us grow support for our mission, please visit our website via the link and complete the online registration and submit a copy of your up to date CV with supporting statement highlighting why you are interested in this role as well as why this role is for you.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. Here at WWF we’re committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection, and shared purpose. We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We’re looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
