At SportsAid we exist to encourage, enable and empower the next generation of athletes to achieve their ambitions in sport and life. Since 1976, we have been side-by-side with Britain’s greatest emerging sporting talent, from Mo Farah to Jessica Ennis-Hill, to Ade Adepitan, Paula Radcliffe and so many others, to give them vital support before they became Olympic and Paralympic stars.
The charity is already working with a number of committed corporate partners, from Aldi to Royal Bank of Canada, from Starling Bank to Strava, that provide financial support, expertise and opportunities to over 1,000 of Britain’s brightest sporting talents. But we know we could do a lot more. And that’s where you come in!
Reporting directly to, and working closely with, the charity’s Head of Fundraising, as Corporate New Business Manager you will play a crucial role in helping drive the sustainability, value and breadth of SportsAid’s partnerships by implementing and contributing to the corporate partnership strategy and income target. You will be specifically responsible for all corporate new business activities including:

Leading with the design of partnerships to ensure that expectations from both parties are met
Developing and implementing tailored cultivation plans for top prospects
Producing high quality, creative, bespoke compelling proposals and pitches
Monitoring, analysing and reviewing information on industry trends, innovations and development.

SportsAid recognises that certain sections of the community have been affected by structural inequities and may be denied the opportunity to participate equally and fully in sport at all levels. SportsAid as an organisation believes our role is to remove the barriers that our most under-served, at risk and minoritised groups of young people experience when trying to access sport and physical activities.
SportsAid therefore positively welcomes, and seeks to achieve, diversity in our workforce and that all job applicants, volunteers and employees receive equal and fair treatment. We positively encourage applications from all candidates regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, marriage and civil partnership status, gender identity, background, religion, faith, sexual orientation, maternity status, pregnancy, belief or nationality.
