With the focus on building relationships to raise funds and awareness for Equation, you should have an ability to build long-term relationships that will benefit the business.
Through networking and researching you will be able to identify corporates who will be interested in Equation’s cause and approach them in the most appropriate way. You will work strategically to attract and secure new corporate partnerships, delivering income targets through activities including sponsorship, corporate donations, cause-related marketing, staff engagement and fundraising. You will also be working with the training department to increase Equation’s training income by making contact with private and public organisations who will benefit from Equation’s training portfolio.
