Corporate Relationship Manager

Sell a product you are passionate about. Save the Children impact the lives of children in Australia, the Pacific and beyond on a daily basis. But we can’t do it alone; the engagement of our commercial partners is critical to our advancement. Blend your experience in the corporate sector with a highly regarded international NGO to market our work to corporate stakeholders. Driven by success you will turn a ‘no’ into a ‘maybe’ and a ‘maybe’ into a ‘yes’. We want more than good communications skills; your patience, tenacity and focus on long lasting partnerships will create demonstrated results for those who rely on us.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there’s a disaster – like an earthquake, drought or conflict – we are there on the ground.

Where you come in:

In this full-time permanent position, based in Carlton, you will be responsible for the effective management and growth of the Save the Children Australia portfolio of corporate partnerships. You will be part of our Supporter Engagement team and report to our Head of Partnerships.

You will make an impact by:

Managing an existing portfolio of partners to drive income growth
Overseeing the new business development initiatives towards the acquisition of new partners
Representing the Corporate Partnerships team as a key point of contact
Strategically formulating CSR partnership plans that are best in-class
Galvanising the wider organisation to maximise the broader fundraising potential
Manage and monitor relevant budgets to operate within defined financial parameters and targets

If we could compose the perfect you…

…You excel at building and nurturing relationships and are motivated by having significant social impact. You have a strong business acumen, strategic selling expertise, and exceptional communication skills that make it easy for you to work with a vast range of people.

This role requires:

Appropriate tertiary qualifications or equivalent experience
5+ years successful experience in managing corporate clients and/or developing new business
High level communication skills – particularly in strategic or conceptual pitching, negotiation or persuasion
High competency with the MS Office suite of programs, including PowerPoint and CRM management
Demonstrated experience in budget/financial management
Prior NGO/NFP experience, desirable, but not necessary

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same.

In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

Opportunity to work on additional projects alongside business as usual
Internal employment and development opportunities
Agile work environment including working from home
Pet and child friendly work environment
Full salary packaging benefits
Additional annual leave options available
