Variety - the childrens charity
Corporate Partnerships Officer
£25,000 - £28,000 per annum
Full-time, 35 hours per week
12 month initial contract
In the UK there are more than 1.3 million children and young people living with a disability and nearly four million children living in poverty.
We exist to improve the lives of these children and since 1949 Variety in the UK has raised more than £270m in pursuit of this objective.
Variety provides practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference, which includes grants for specialist equipment as well as accessible transport used by schools and other non-profit organisations across the UK. Our Great Days Out are legendary.
As with many organisations we are re-calibrating to adjust to the changes that have been brought by the Coronavirus pandemic, which has only increased the demand for what we do.
Our 75th anniversary in 2024 is fast approaching, which gives us a huge opportunity to put 2020 firmly behind us, and to re-double our efforts in generating funds, raising our profile, and most importantly increasing the impact and reach to those children and young people who most need our support. The Corporate Partnerships Team plays an integral role in the organisations growth.
The new role of Corporate Support Officer provides the exciting opportunity to work on fantastic partnerships with engaged businesses. Our ideal candidate will have experience in a similar role, must have exceptional standards of supporter care and strong attention to detail, along with the ability to be proactive, spot new opportunities and innovate.
You will create dynamic, targeted, and engaging partnerships using your excellent relationship management skills to deliver on the strategic objectives of the charity and our corporate partners.
While the initial contract is for an initial 12 months but there is every hope and expectation that this will be extended, and that the position will convert to become permanent. You will have our full support in making this a reality.
