Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries. Our Communications Unit comprises teams covering media, digital, events and brand and marketing. The expertise within the unit helps present who we are and what we do in a professional and consistent way.  We have an opportunity for a Corporate Communications Adviser to join the unit to devise and lead the delivery of integrated and impactful communications strategies for our key strategic partnerships. In the role of Corporate Partnerships Communications Adviser you will be working with some of our key strategic partnerships including Credit Suisse, the People’s Postcode Lottery and Chelsea FC. You will work with key stakeholders to create and implement strategic communications plans to promote our partnership work. You will advise the Major Partnerships Unit on how to effectively position us as a charity partner of choice and support with new business pitches as required. You will also coordinate across the communications unit to ensure partnership communications is integrated across digital media, traditional media, events and other brand activities. Extensive experience of working in a busy communications team (preferably in a fundraising environment and/or communications/PR agency) is required, along with a track record of achieving coverage, targets and key objectives. You will be able to identify and develop compelling content and communications and give confident, strategic advice to internal and external stakeholders. Knowledge of UK fundraising and communications in the not-for-profit sector is essential and ideally you will have an understanding of international development and/or child rights issues.
