Full Time

At Farewill, we’re out to change the way the world deals with death, helping people to take control, personally and financially, of what matters to them after they’re gone.

Partnerships have been a huge part of our success as we’ve grown to UK market leadership in only 18 months, working with organisations like Macmillan Cancer Support, Save the Children, WaterAid, Legal & General, MoneySavingExpert, and The Daily Mail to name a few. And what’s more, we’ve raised over £50 million for UK charities along the way!

To support our growth, we're looking for an enthusiastic Partnerships Executive to join our team and support our growing number of partners. You'll be an integral part to the success of the business, and at the heart of a growing team.

*Who You Are*

You’re a people person, with the confidence to deal with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and sectors.

You’ll be enthusiastic, organised and quick to learn, and you’ll genuinely enjoy helping our partners get the most from their relationships with us.

And crucially you’ll champion what we do as a company and want to play a key role in shaping the future of the death industry around the world.

*What You’ll Do*

As a Partnerships Executive you’ll be an integral member of our partnerships team. You’ll help to grow the number of organisations we work with, manage our ongoing relationships and build our reputation across charity, consumer and financial sectors.

In the next 12 months:

* You’ll be responsible for onboarding new partners - ensuring they have everything they need and be their first port of call for support
* You’ll help partners with their contract due diligence, ensuring they get all the information they need
* You’ll develop presentation and event materials to help raise awareness of our brand and help win new partners
* You'll develop training and best practice guides to help our partners make the most out of the services we provide
* You’ll support charities to run effective digital campaigns using Facebook, email and other channels
* You’ll run monthly reporting and invoicing for partners
* You'll research like-minded organisations we can work with
* You'll help manage social media and partner communications
* You’ll work closely with the wider product team to help define and develop new tools to add value to our partnerships
* And you’ll learn tons from our experienced and friendly partnership leads


*What You’ll Have*

1+ years experience in partnerships or account management
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Very good interpersonal skills and the ability to engage with people from different sectors and levels of seniority
An ability to confidently handle data and draw insights to share with partners
A willingness to get involved in the wider work of the business
We Hope You’ll Have

An understanding of the types of partners we work with. Knowledge of the charity sector would be particularly valuable, as much of the work at the outset will be focused in this area.
1+ years experience of running digital marketing campaigns and confidence using tools like Facebook, Twitter and Mailchimp
Experience of using a CRM
If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you.
