Charity Partnerships Manager

Posted 29 Jan 2020 | Opportunities | Jobs

A unique role in a unique organisation.

Pilotlight is a dynamic, award-winning social enterprise with established bases in Central London and Edinburgh, which transforms the lives of disadvantaged people in the UK. We do this by offering charities and social enterprises access to the strategic business support they need to become more efficient, effective and sustainable. Through a managed process of coaching and mentoring by teams of our business members (Pilotlighters), we help the charities and social enterprises we work with to develop their strategic knowhow, strengthen their organisations and, ultimately, increase their impact. In London we are currently supporting over 150 charities and social enterprises – working on a diverse set of issues such as homelessness, domestic violence, mental health, education and youth work and support services for the elderly - using the skills of over 500 Pilotlighters.

The Charity Partnerships Manager is an exciting new opportunity that has been created within the team to further Pilotlight’s strategic objectives of increasing our reach and innovating our offer to charities and social enterprises. You will lead the recruitment and selection of Pilotlight partner charities, ensuring that the impact our support has is optimal, and that we are achieving our targets across all Pilotlight programmes.

This is a new role within the Operations Team, to ensure that we have the correct systems and processes in place, particularly to support the expansion and successful delivery of the programmes run with our corporate partners. As such, you will have a keen eye for detail, be highly organised and be proactive in identifying and implementing improvements needed.

We are looking for someone who is familiar with the not-for-profit sector and the issues faced by charities and social enterprises. Alongside excellent communication skills, you will be IT confident and enjoy the challenge of managing data and implementing new systems.

You will be working as part of a talented, dedicated, friendly team and will have the opportunity to be involved across all aspects of our work.
