The Major Partnerships Unit is part of the Public Engagement (PE) Directorate, which also includes Communications, Individual Giving, Business Improvement and Innovation and Girls Rights and Youth (Campaigns).
The Major Partnerships Unit brings together key players to deliver income, increase influence and impact, and raise our profile. Working across trusts, major donors and corporates, the unit has seen remarkable growth in recent years – from £5m in 2012 to an expected total in excess of £10m next year. We have flagship corporate partnerships including AstraZeneca, Credit Suisse and Chelsea Football Club, together with a growing family of committed trusts and major donor supporters who generously support our work. The unit incorporates a Programme Team, which means we can offer an enviable range of high-impact programmes that meet donor interests whilst ensuring that outcomes for children remain at the very heart of our approach.
We have a fantastic opportunity for a talented leader to join the team as Head of Major Partnerships and build on our success to date, helping us do even more for the world’s poorest children. You will provide overall leadership to the unit, and build from our existing track record to position us as a leader in effective private sector and philanthropy partnerships, and forge new opportunities for the organisation.
You will have a wealth of experience in securing, developing and maximising private sector or philanthropic partnerships at a high level. You will have the communication skills, and credibility to grow Plan International UK’s network, persuading and negotiating to build our successful partnerships and track record. A confident leader, with substantial team management experience, you will be able to guide a large team to excel and achieve even greater impact for children.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Tuesday 23 May 2017
First round interviews will take place during week commencing 19 June, with second round interviews during week commencing 26 June 2017
