I am working on behalf of the Princes Trust who is hoping to appoint a Head of Public Sector Partnerships on a permanent basis. This role is covering Central England so the ideal candidate will be based in or around- Nottingham, Birmingham or Leicester.

The funding streams are a mix of private and public sector and this role will deliver and grow public sector income in the region in line with business plan needs. The Trust needs to raise 50m+ each year of which around 18m is currently derived from the public sector/government.

You will be required to manage a high-performance public-sector income generation team in the region focused on maximising The Trust's income from contracted/government funders. In addition, you will support the implementation of the Public Sector Strategy, maximising income from local, regional and cross-regional initiatives and other intermediaries handling government funding such as prime contractors.

You will have a good understanding of government funding priorities at local, regional and national level and a strong negotiator with the ability to close complex deals. Demonstrable experience of generating income through partnerships in funding (public and private) and strong account management experience, able to increase support from key relationships and designated accounts to achieve defined income targets.

This is a quick turnaround , please contact Natalie Lawford at Harris Hill on 020 7820 7336 or Natalie.lawford@harrishill.co.uk

Only suitable candidates will be contacted.
