We’re hiring a Partnerships Manager

Are you a capable strategic relationship manager who gets fantastic results with partners? Do you want to lead on the delivery of education programmes and shape a growing organisation with ambitious goals?

Young Citizens is one of the UK’s largest charities providing citizenship education – whether it be teaching about the law, digital citizenship, or youth-led social action. The partnerships manager is an essential member of the team, leading our network of major national and multi-national employers as stakeholders and investors in our social impact work.

You will be inheriting a rich portfolio of flagship programmes, like Experts in Schools, and corporate relationships with global organisations such as Allen & Overy and Disney. You will also have the chance to work with the department director on expanding our network both in programme offers and new partnerships, as well as drive strategic growth of the overall charity with the leadership team.


Who are we looking for?

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, conscientious partnerships manager who understands how to link corporate goodwill with a programme of engagement and growing partnerships. The successful candidate would:

  • Work with the senior leadership team to set the Partnership development plans for the organisation and play a central role in delivering against them
  • Maintain existing off-the-shelf corporate partnerships programmes (Experts in Schools), as well as bespoke consultancy projects and ensure annual income targets are met
  • Drive the strategic development of our partnerships with corporates within existing and new sectors
  • Oversee the development of new and existing corporate-facing resources, trainings and workshops in line with our quality control criteria
  • Work with the Education and Programmes teams to develop and implement plans to build strategic networks that might lead to the creation of new initiatives
