Commercial Campaigns Fundraiser

The Corporate Partnerships team here at the NSPCC have had an exciting year. We exceeded our target in 2021-2022. And now have a fantastic opportunity to recruit a new team member to join our New Business team. We are looking for candidates who wish to learn and grow their experience in corporate fundraising or business development in a dynamic team who lead the way in supporting children.

the ideal candidate will be someone who:

  • Understands the huge value of brand partnerships (especially around amplifying the cause of a charity)
  • Regularly looks at commercial campaigns and think ‘I could add something to that’...
  • Likes the challenge of building relationships with brand/marketing teams, in the commercial world
  • Has a passion for making children safe 

Over the last few years, the NSPCC has been developing our flagship moments - Childhood Day (June) and our ‘Here for Children’ campaign at Christmas. We’ve been successful in engaging individuals, communities (including schools) and current partners to support these moments. But this role offers an amazing opportunity, for the right person, to develop brand new commercial partnerships to generate even more income and raise vital awareness of our flagship moments. 

Alongside our flagship fundraising moments there is also the opportunity for this person to develop exciting fundraising propositions to engage commercial partners around other key moments for children and families in the year such as Back to school and Pride.

Whilst support to fund our services and campaigns are vital, the person who undertakes this role will also understand the added value that commercial partnerships can mean for the work of the NSPCC in keeping children safe.  Commercial brands have a reach into millions of families and homes in the UK (through their direct customer base, brand campaigns, marketing channels and sales platforms). So, this person will find ways to maximise the opportunity to amplify the work of the NSPCC whilst raising generating vital funds.
