We are looking for a new Head of Employer Relations & Business Development, a key leadership role at the Social Mobility Foundation.
The pandemic has been disastrous for the young people SMF supports, but it has also inspired businesses to respond and invest in social mobility. The Head of Employer Relations & Business Development will primarily be responsible for managing an impressive range of corporate relationships with companies partnering with the SMF to fund and support their work. Reporting to the CEO, the postholder will be responsible for delivering on the SMF’s strategic priorities and will shape and deliver the offer to corporate partners, stewarding those relationships to the highest level wherever possible.
The ideal candidate for this position will have proven, demonstrable experience of building, maintaining and developing mutually beneficial corporate funding relationships and partnerships. You will be a creative, resourceful individual who will enjoy developing a healthy pipeline of activity and will be a natural, approachable, supportive leader of teams. You will be passionate about providing access and opportunity for young people across the UK and will be capable of working at the very highest level with corporate partners, and at the same time be excited by the personal professional growth this role and our organisation could offer you.
