Head of Philanthropy and Corporate Partnerships – £32,320

The Head of Philanthropy & Corporate Partnerships, is a new position that has been created to establish and lead growth from this as yet untapped income stream, in the exciting context of Asylum Aid’s merger with the Migrants Resource Centre. The merger allows us to provide a much wider range of services, and enables us to help greater numbers of refugees, as well as other immigrants. The goal of the Head of Philanthropy & Corporate Partnerships role therefore, will be to develop and implement a strategy which delivers restricted and unrestricted income to ensure the merger’s long-term success.

The role will suit a highly motivated and ambitious fundraiser with a track record of meeting or exceeding targets. You’ll be a strategic thinker, able to develop a creative long-term fundraising strategy. You’ll be a great communicator and will develop and initiate new relationships to motivate and influence people at all levels to support our work as a growing organisation.
