Job Introduction

BBC Children in Need are currently looking for a Programmes and Funding Partnerships Manager on a 6 Month Fixed-Term Contract, location flexible.

BBC Children in Need's Funding Partnerships team supports a number of strategic and thematic grant programmes and looks beyond grant funding to consider additional partnerships and approaches such as storytelling that contribute to wider impacts for children and young people across the UK.

BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK Charity, and exists to make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Our refreshed objectives and activities will ensure the impact we have on children's lives is front and centre of the work the charity undertakes over and above the projects and services we fund.

Our focus is on finding and funding the inspiring ideas that change children's lives.

And whilst we know that every child deserves a childhood that is safe, happy and secure, we know too that a growing number of children are experiencing ever increasing and more complex levels of disadvantage. In order to find and fund the inspiring ideas, we will build on our commitment across the organisation to work collaboratively with all those who share our aspirations for children and young people.

Role Responsibility

The Programmes and Funding Partnerships Manager will play a leading role across the design, development, management and delivery of a portfolio of partnership programmes. The role will both lead on key portfolios of work and support the delivery of cross team priorities including grant programmes and team infrastructure development.

As well as colleagues in our Impact Directorate, the role will work closely with colleagues within BBC Children in Need, the wider BBC and external stakeholders.

The Ideal Candidate

You will have good knowledge of the voluntary sector and the children / young people's field as well as excellent communication, interpersonal and project management skills.

A strategic and creative thinker, you will be able to problem solve effectively and influence people at all levels.

The location of the role is flexible and the position will involve some travel, including but not limited to London and Salford.

The role will be line managed by the Head of Funding Partnerships.

Please contact if you would like to discuss any aspect of the role.
