We help anyone, anywhere in the UK and around the world, get the support they need if crisis strikes: connecting human kindness with human crisis. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. From hiring a wheelchair or dealing with loneliness, to adjusting to life in a new country - we’re there when people need us. We enable vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them to recover and move on with their lives. Within the UK, the British Red Cross operates through about 3500 staff and over 20,000 volunteers.
Partners of the British Red Cross don’t just help raise money for charity. They can change the lives of people in crisis forever. We already work with some of the country’s best known brands and these partnerships help more than a million people in the UK every year. This includes support in emergencies, help for refugees, first aid training and more. Each partnership is unique, and we take pride in the depth and quality of these relationships.
We are now seeking an outstanding leader to join our ambitious team to lead and grow our work in this important area. We believe there is enormous potential, driving forward innovative ways of engaging new and existing partners to deliver our lifesaving work and to build our profile as the partner of choice for organisations looking to strengthen their own impact. As our Director of Partnerships, you will be integral in developing our partnerships strategy and, with your team, promoting this across the organisation to inspire and motivate everyone to embed partnerships in their own work.
