Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
About the role
In 2017, we launched Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD) – a sector focused fundraising campaign with a target to raise £10million over the next five years through corporate partnerships, major gifts and events. The corporate arm of the campaign has recently taken off and we have won a number of exciting, new partnerships. We are now looking for a talented corporate fundraiser to manage and develop these accounts to help us reach our ambitious campaign target.
This role will be integral to the success of the campaign and is a fantastic opportunity to build on your account management experience by taking ownership of a new and growing portfolio. You will also gain exposure to a board of senior volunteers and a unique sector led fundraising campaign.
You will lead on a variety of partnerships including charity of the year, strategic partnerships, employee fundraising, cause related marketing and sector wide corporate fundraising events. You will look to maximise fundraising, volunteering and pro bono opportunities and develop long term, sustainable relationships. You will also line manage a Corporate Account Executive.
We are looking for a highly dynamic and professional fundraiser, with demonstrable experience of corporate account management and line management. With an ambitious attitude you will be a natural and confident communicator, adept at building relationships with contacts from graduates to senior directors, both internally and externally. You will be a strong negotiator with good business acumen, and will bring your creative thinking to each partnership to help maximise success.
This is an exciting time to join Alzheimer’s Society as we continue our most ambitious 5 year organisational strategy and we need exceptional people to help achieve our fundraising goals.
Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely, all contributing to a strong work life balance. We also have various learning programmes to support you in your development and help you grow to realise your potential and shape a career with Alzheimer's Society.
