Corporate Partnerships Manager

WWF-New Zealand is looking for an optimistic and determined Corporate Partnerships Manager. You’ll have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, and previous experience building strong external relationships. You’ll be excited by the opportunity to make a difference with an international environmental organisation and an iconic brand.

Your primary responsibility will be to support the Strategic Partnerships Manager to develop, secure and manage corporate partnership opportunities which provide funding and strategic value to WWF-New Zealand. You will be tasked with conducting due diligence on prospective corporate sponsors, working closely with sponsors to ensure long profitable relationships and overseeing corporate sponsorship initiatives.

This role would suit someone with a warm, approachable personality, the ability to build rapport and trust quickly, and a proven track-record in corporate partnerships, who wants to play a key role in working towards a New Zealand where people thrive in harmony with nature.

An ability to clearly communicate our organisation’s mission is key. You will be excited about getting out there and talking to the wonderful people who care about our cause. You’ll use your high level of emotional intelligence to make sponsors feel listened to and valued, negotiate great outcomes and build relationships.

Self-motivated and focused, you’ll have good initiative and enjoy working within small, cross-organisational teams to achieve results together. You are comfortable in discussions with high level influencers, but also happy to get stuck in organising the nuts and bolts of the programme.

The Corporate Partnerships Manager position is a full-time (37.5 hours a week) fixed-term role for 12 months, but it may be extended or established as a full-time permanent role at the end of that 12 month period. The position is based in Auckland.
