  • Working with the NCF team, lead the evaluation of the current NCF business offer through interviewing existing and prospective partners to understand opportunities and aspirations of business engagement, helping to develop and refine the NCF corporate giving offer

About you

We are looking for someone who is an articulate and inspiring communicator able to make the complex idea accessible to all, and is quick to learn and naturally inquisitive to find out more.

You will be able to work at pace both within a team and when operating alone, as well as have experience in translating a vision into an operational plan.

Being happy to lead from the front but able to actively listen and ‘hear’ potential opportunities and challenges and respond with appropriate opportunities is a key part of this role, as is the ability to follow policy and procedure. Knowledge of community groups and charities or a keen interest and willingness to learn is important.
