Are you a forward-thinking, ambitious and self-motivated individual with a grounded understanding of corporate partnerships in the charity sector? Do you have the ability to generate new businesses and build excellent relationships that will add long term value to the organisation? Search no more!
We are looking for an Interim New Business Corporate Partnerships Manager to join us initially for 3 months. You will join our team at a pivotal point in our 100-year history as we embark on a new strategy with big ambitions.
As a national organisation with a growing public profile, we will be doubling our efforts to drive increased investment and support to local youth services who are supporting some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in the UK. This work has never been more needed in the wake of a global pandemic.
To ensure we can deliver on these ambitions, new income generation and partnership development are critical. Are you ready to join us and take on the challenge? If so, keep reading.
This is an exciting time to join our amazing team in a role that offers you the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of thousands of young people.
Founded over 100 years ago, UK Youth is a national charity that exists to ensure all young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. We provide infrastructure support to more than 5,500 local youth organisations, collectively reaching 1.6 million young people and we deliver high quality skills development programmes, ranging from employability to STEM and the Arts. We are lucky to have the support of well-known and highly respected corporate brands including Microsoft, Google, LinkedIn and Oliver Bonas.
Young people with complex needs and those from disadvantaged backgrounds are being hardest hit by rising inequality and cuts to local services. Never has there been a more crucial time for organisations to work with young people.
91% of young people supported by UK Youth face at least one barrier to progression; from being in care, experiencing homelessness to having a disability or poor mental health. We work in partnership with local youth clubs and organisations to deliver high-quality services, grow good practice and campaign to increase nationwide investment and support for young people and youth work.
For many young people, their youth worker can be one of the only people they can openly talk to, and their club is the only space they have to develop their voice, explore their character and realise their full potential.
We stand with youth to ensure their voices are heard as we continue to campaign with them to have access to life-changing opportunities. To find more about us and how we make an impact, please click here.
