Are you our new Corporate Partnerships Officer?
- Could you be a passionate advocate for charitable foundations and the role they play in supporting civil society?
- Do you want to use your expertise to help ACF enhance the way it works with commercial organisations for the benefit of its members?
- Do you have the vision to build our partnership programme and make it increasingly productive and successful?
- Are you an excellent team player, able to work with others to deliver a range of ideas and projects for our sponsors?
If so then you might well be the right person to join ACF at what is a crucial time for the organisation.
ACF is the membership body for UK foundations and grant-making charities. Our 370 members collectively hold assets of around £50bn and give over £2.5bn annually.
Their missions vary hugely and include: arts and heritage, social justice, human rights, criminal justice, conservation and the environment, vulnerable adults and children, health, housing and poverty. Driven by a belief that foundations are a vital source for social good, ACF’s mission is to support them to be ambitious and effective in the way that they use their resources.
As part of a new strategy, ACF has developed a Partnership Programme which will bring in a new source of income and sponsorship. It also provides a framework for our partners to share their professional expertise with our members, helping members to achieve more with their resources and be more effective. The official partners are Cazenove Charities, CCLA, Mercer and Ruffer LLP, four leading companies with expertise in investing and a track record of engagement with the sector.
About the role
This is a unique opportunity to help shape this programme and work with our partners and members to develop and deliver opportunities for meaningful and mutually beneficial exchanges. The Corporate Partnerships Officer will thrive on working across a team to deliver high quality projects and events that deliver for all parties.
The Corporate Partnerships Officer will need to be an excellent listener and relationship builder, as well as an organised project manager and sometimes a problem solver. They will also be able to demonstrate commercial acumen and entrepreneurial flair and be able to develop relationships, so they will need to be outgoing and confident but also diplomatic and able to negotiate win-win situations.
