The Role

This is an exciting newly created role at SPEAR, to maximise the corporate fundraising potential that SPEAR is already experiencing. This is a varied role for someone who has already worked in a corporate partnerships position and is looking to move into a lead role in developing a corporate partnerships strategy and programme with the support of the Director of Fundraising and Engagement. Over the next 2-3 years we have ambitions to double our corporate income and we are predicting a minimum of 20% growth next year, with the potential to grow more as part of a focused programme.

You will be working as part of the Fundraising and Engagement team, reporting to and working closely with the Director of Fundraising and Engagement. We are a collaborative, innovative, agile, and friendly team and we are looking for someone to join us to lead Corporate Partnerships.

We already have a handful of loyal partners, who also have the potential to grow their support and to introduce their networks. Being a local London organisation, we also have great community links and presence, and we wish to maximise on our networks and presence to create a focussed corporate partnerships programme.
