Head of Partnerships & Development
We are looking for a passionate and experienced person to join our senior team, to lead on developing and cultivating productive partnerships and collaborations with employers, trusts, and other third sector organisations.
Future First’s portfolio of existing employer partnerships generates a significant proportion of our income, which this role will be responsible for maintaining.
Further to this, the Head of Partnerships & Development will be responsible for seeking to extend our existing portfolio, building meaningful partnerships and initiatives with new employers and professional networks, who can enable the charity to expand its already successful work through financial support, gifts in kind or other means.
In addition, this role is responsible for managing our fundraising pipeline, ensuring sufficient income is being generated to enable the organisation’s continued operations by identifying funding opportunities and responding to these by working closely with Future First colleagues on the development of compelling funding applications.
This is a key role in Future First’s operations team, working closely with the Director of Operations & Finance and the wider team to ensure the smooth running of the organisation’s day to day operations. The role encompasses finance, HR and technology.
The successful candidate may not have experience in all three areas, but will be able and willing to learn systems and processes quickly. The role is busy so the successful candidate will need to be happy working at pace, with the ability to work to tight deadlines while prioritising workload.
The Operations Officer will need to have some presence in our London office, but we are very open to agreeing a flexible working pattern to best suit the right candidate.
