Shelter is looking for a commercially aware Deputy Head of Business Development with an impressive corporate fundraising background to join us in this new role.

Over the past year, we’ve been busy developing a fundraising strategy for the five years ahead. We have attracted considerable interest from corporate partners and have been successful in building long-term partnerships with British Gas, Fujitsu, Nationwide and KPMG. As a result, we’ve increased investment in our fundraising division and are expanding the Corporate Partnerships team to make sure we offer excellent support to and make the most of these partnerships. With the creation of these roles, our aim is simple – to work together with our partners to help more people. We are looking for energetic individuals who share our passion and vision to make this a reality.

Benefits include 30 days annual leave, flexible working and significant opportunities for learning and development.

Your key responsibilities:

  • Securing strategic long term corporate partnerships
  • Working with the Head of Business Development to assess synergies and the commercial advantage of organisations aligning with Shelter
  • Proactively networking, sourcing senior contacts and identifying income opportunities
  • Working cross-divisionally with research, policy and service colleagues to optimise our portfolio
  • Developing and presenting creative propositions to a wide range of audiences

And what you’ll need:

  • Significant corporate fundraising/commercial sales and marketing experience
  • A proven track record of negotiating at a high income level
  • Experience of building a pipeline of income generating opportunities
  • Evidence of strategic thinking and developing constructive networks that lead to opportunities for the organisation
  • A demonstrable ability to plan multi-year partnerships and cross-team projects
