Do you have experience of creating and building high-impact, high-value partnerships with Trusts & Foundations?

Do you have a passion for supporting international programmes that are sustainable and scalable, working alongside communities to embed long-term change?

Do you work creatively and proactively to find space where organisations align and can work together, underpinned by the right funding and the right relationship?

If so, we would like to hear from you!

The Role

We are looking for an ambitious, self-motivated, and experienced New Partnerships Manager to join our team. We are implementing a new strategy for partnering with trusts and foundations from the UK, Europe, and beyond to support transformational work around the world, and would love for you to join us in bringing new partners on board.

What we are looking for

Our next New Partnerships Manager will have at least two years Trusts & Foundations fundraising and/or partnership management experience with a strong track record of successfully securing new partnerships and significant funding. They will also be comfortable working with ambiguity and fast-paced, reactive work, have strong relationship-building skills, and have the ability to lead and drive forward initiatives in a large, complex organisation.

We offer

You will be joining a successful team at an exciting time, as we embed the insights from our recent Audience Insight research conducted with 25 trusts and foundations across the UK and Europe. We are moving towards more genuine, programme-focused partnerships based around honesty, transparency, and learning. We are excited about the potential our new ways of working offer for creating the kind of funding partnerships that more effectively serve the communities we work alongside.

You will be joining an energetic, engaging, and experienced team responsible for delivering long-term funding partnerships to help realise Oxfam’s vision of a just world without poverty. We sit within a dynamic, supportive department that has a clear focus on personal learning and development.

We place a high priority on ensuring that only those who share and demonstrate our values are recruited to work for us.

The post holder will undertake the appropriate level of training and is responsible for ensuring that they understand and work within the safeguarding policies of the organisation.
