Harris Hill are delighted to be supporting FareShare in their search for a Corporate Partnerships Manager (New Business).
Hunger is a growing issue in the UK and while there is surplus food that is otherwise going to waste, FareShare believe that this food should be used to feed people first. The UK's national network of charitable food redistributors, they take good quality food surplus and get it to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups. During 2020, they redistributed 113 million meals, reaching over 1 million people.
With the COVID19 pandemic shining a light on the issue of food insecurity in the UK the organisations work has never been more vital. The increase in awareness and significance has seen FareShare benefit from the support of major retailers, the media, sports ambassadors and a groundswell of public engagement. Its fundraising team has also seen incredible growth in support over the past 12 months across Corporate Fundraising, Individual Giving, and Trusts & Foundations. As a result there has never been a more exciting time to join an organisation at the heart of public consciousness!
Working closely with the Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager and Head of Fundraising, you will work to secure new innovative collaborations including charity of the year partnerships, commercial brand licensing deals and multifaceted sponsorships/partnerships to support the important work of the charity. This includes pitching to potential partners and leading on the negotiation of bespoke deals and benefits packages.
A proven track record of securing income, ideally gained within a fundraising environment, as well as experience of working with a broad range of stakeholders to create high-quality fundraising proposals is vital. You must be self-motivated with strong organisational skills and an ability to set priorities, manage a prospect pipeline and meet deadlines. Leadership qualities are also key as you will line manage a Corporate Partnerships Officer, supporting their learning and development.
If you're a creative relationship builder with strong commercial awareness and an eye for spotting income generating potential then please do get in touch!
Please note, only successful candidates will be contacted with more information.
