Our client seek a results driven partnerships manager to build lasting relationships and generate revenue with local businesses, individuals and the community to drive forward their success. This fantastic opportunity arises within a thriving Lancashire charity and is ideal for a passionate individual who thrives from working to a target and wants to benefit from the sense of well-being that comes from working within the charitable sector.

This Blackburn-based charity seek a driven, results orientated individual to join their warm, vibrant and busy team. As the Partnerships Revenue Manager you will be responsible for raising funds through the charity’s numerous funding streams including ongoing corporate sponsorship, individual donors, fundraising events, helping facilitate the securing of grants and promoting facility hire. You will take ownership for a specific revenue target and should bring both a strategic and operational approach to this role to ensure it is met. You will be working with a small team to build lasting relationships with the community, local businesses, corporate foundations and trusts.

The successful applicant will be a natural networker and will thrive from building ongoing relationships through trust, clear communication and regular contact.

If you thrive from working to shared goals and are looking for a role where you feel that you are making a difference then you should most certainly explore this opportunity.

Working hours are 37.5 per week to be worked within core office hours of 8.30am to 6pm. Due to the nature of the role, you will be required to attend a range of events and networking meetings that may fall outside of these hours. The ability to work flexibly is therefore essential.

  • Lead and co-ordinate the development and implementation of the charity’s fundraising strategy in collaboration with the Chief Executive
  • Support the management and stewardship of existing donors and corporate partners as well as developing new partnerships

  • Produce high quality written proposals and make verbal presentations and face to face requests tailored specifically to meet a donor’s personal interest
  • Develop and manage the implementation of a programme of activities to approach, request and realise donations from potential major donors, working closely with the Board and existing supporters to identify such supporters
  • Manage the production of fundraising, communications and promotional materials for private sector partners and events
  • Make best use of the charity’s team, Board and Patrons to strengthen private sector relationships and identify prospects within their networks
  • Generate written and financial reports for management and the Board as required
  • Ensure adherence to relevant charity legislation and the Institute of Fundraising’s Codes of Fundraising Practice

The ideal Community & Partnerships Revenue Manager must;

  • Have experience working in a sales or target driven environment
  • Have a strategic approach to developing and maintaining relationships (and a strategic approach to developing a long term funding strategy for BYZ)
  • Possess excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Be able to think conceptually and creatively to develop profitable fundraising products and proposals for fundraising
  • Be a natural communicator and networker
  • Be committed to upholding the charity’s ethos and their commitment to their local community
  • Possess strong computer & IT skills

Our client can offer;

  • Competitive salary including target related incentives
  • A vibrant, modern and engaging working environment
