JOB OPPORTUNITY: 

DIRECTOR OF PARTNERSHIPS

The RE:ACT team is on a mission to provide humanitarian assistance, in the fastest time, to the most vulnerable and hardest to reach communities on the surface of our planet. 

Since 2017, we’ve responded to numerous national and international disasters and helped over 640,000 people in need, including operations in the Caribbean, Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa.  In the past year, we have pivoted to focus on supporting the UK’s response to Covid-19 as well as refugees from Afghanistan.

We are a small, lean, agile charity that is growing at pace, and punching well above our weight in terms of impact and recognition.  Building on our growing UK and international reputation, we are now in the exciting position of recruiting this strategic partnership role that offers substantial scope to deliver true impact at an exciting time for the organisation as we craft our new strategy under the leadership of our new CEO.  

We are looking for an outstanding leader to shape and drive our partnerships and fundraising approach to support the work of RE:ACT.  This new role will work closely with the CEO, Senior Leadership Team, Board of Trustees and other senior stakeholders to maximise potential, driving forward innovative ways of engaging new and existing partners.  The role will also be responsible for building a small partnerships team. You’ll be joining our Senior Leadership team, with every day bringing new challenges.  At RE:ACT, you’ll be proud to see your individual and team contributions making a massive difference.

We are looking to grow our fundraising income stream and to match and increase on the income from our for-profit subsidiary, RE:SILIENT.  A key focus for the role is to build on the success to-date; growing RE:ACT’s profile as a partner of choice and introducing our work to new partners.

If you are part partnerships guru, part fundraising guerrilla and ready to take us to the next level, we would love to hear from you.

ABOUT YOU

You are an exceptional relationship manager with a strong track record of delivering high value, long-standing, meaningful partnerships.

You have extensive experience of working with senior volunteer fundraisers, stakeholders and trustees to solicit donations and demonstrable experience of developing team/departmental strategies and managing significant budgets and operating plans, setting and achieving fundraising targets for a team.

You are highly skilled at planning and managing complex projects and relationships, working collaboratively across a variety of internal and external stakeholders.
