Since 1985 Comic Relief’s mission has always remained clear – to be the disruptor for social justice and change. We’ve successfully raised awareness for the causes that help to support this vision year on year with the support of those who also believe in what we do. In order to continue to have a positive impact on the lives of people who we want to change, we need to transform, and that means starting a new chapter.
We are becoming a creative agency for a social change. An agency that is proud to be bold, confident and even at times edgy. We want to harness creativity to better effect, value our brands, embrace talent, connect globally, engage and empower many more people in our mission.
We need the best talent to ensure that we’re continuously learning, growing and inspiring. This is a new chapter for Comic Relief – come and help create the future.
If you are a brilliant grant making professional why not join Comic Relief and help bring about real and lasting change by being part of a team tackling the root causes of poverty and social injustice?
As Partnership Manager we want you to deliver and manage initiatives (and the grants within them) co-funded by the UK Government using funds raised from the Tampon Tax, which aims to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and girls in the UK. This will involve taking the lead on grant making and management, risk and partnership management and budget control. You will also ensure compliance and provide regular stakeholder reporting. You will meet with partners, supporting them to deliver social change, champion stories of success and share key learning.
It is essential you have experience in grant making, an in-depth understanding of best practice and effective grant management. You must be comfortable building and nurturing relationships, excel at stakeholder management and relish working in a collaborative environment. Financially astute, you will also possess strong communication, presentation and interpersonal skills. You are passionate about protecting, inspiring and empowering marginalised or disadvantaged women and, ideally, have a good understanding of the UK Women and Girls sector.
We positively welcome, and seeks to ensure we achieve, diversity in our workforce and that all job applicants and employees receive equal and fair treatment, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or nationality. We encourage applications from disabled people and we will guarantee a first stage interview to all disabled applicants who sufficiently demonstrate in their application how they meet the essential criteria for the job as outlined on the person specification of the job description.
