This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. With nearly half a million members we are the largest charity dedicated to girls and young women in the UK, and one of the largest and leading youth charities. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our 100,000 amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.

This role will specifically take the lead in securing new business to help us to deliver our corporate fundraising strategy, by growing Girlguiding’s portfolio of exciting corporate partnerships with well-known brands and companies.

We are looking for an individual who has a real hunger for, and avid interest in developing new business pitches and ideas. The individual will need to be dynamic, tenacious and creative with excellent communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills, and of course, wanting to join a friendly, ambitious and fun team! This is a fantastic opportunity for the right individual to bring their skills, experience and passion for corporate fundraising to make a significant difference to the lives of girls and young women.
