One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. Millions more are at risk. The British Lung Foundation (BLF) is here for every one of them. We support people affected by lung disease, so that no one has to face it alone. We promote greater understanding of lung disease and campaign for change in the nation’s lung health. We fund vital research so that new treatments and cures can help to save lives.

We are now looking for a Corporate Partnerships Executive to join our Partnerships Team. The objective of this role is the generation of new funds for the BLF from companies, through the acquisition of new and the cultivation of existing corporate partners. The focus of the role is 75% on new business and 25% on account management.

You will be joining a small dynamic team with ambitions for growth, in a well-established Fundraising department. You will have an opportunity to make a considerable impact through new business opportunities and the growth of existing partnerships. Ideally you will have significant experience of hitting targets, pitching for new business and managing relationships with existing partners. Your experience will have been gained through either corporate fundraising or within a sales/business development environment.

Not only are we the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs but also a fantastic employer. We have recently been nationally recognised as a fantastic place to work after earning a place at no.35 in The Sunday Times Best 100 Not for Profit Organisations. This is a great achievement as only the organisations with the highest level of employee engagements qualify for the list.

As well as a competitive salary you can enjoy a range of benefits including our cycle-to-work scheme, interest-free annual season Travelcard loan, 30 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays (pro-rata for part-time employees), pension scheme and much more.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to an organisation committed to supporting everyone whose lives are changed by lung disease. If you are inspired to learn more about our work or the role further details are available on our website www.blf.org.uk .
