SSAFA – Corporate Partnerships Officer


Up to £28,000 per annum

37.5 hours per week 

Central Office, London EC3R 

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a full time Corporate Partnerships Officer in the Corporate & Events fundraising team at SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, supports the person behind the uniform; any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us. Every year, SSAFA helps more than 82,000 people from the Forces family to get back on their feet; those currently serving, reserves, veterans and their families. Support is there for people at any stage in their military career; from the youngest recruit to the oldest veteran – no one’s service is ever forgotten. We give hope, help and personal support for as long as it takes to get that person’s life back to where they want it to be. 

About the role 

We are seeking an experienced individual to fulfil the day to day management of existing corporate partnerships, with a particular aim to maximise the fundraising element involved.

The role includes management of 5 existing corporate partnerships, including those with Amey plc and Boeing UK. The Corporate Partnership Officer will motivate and inspire employees at corporate partner companies to raise funds for SSAFA across all opportunities and will also work with partners on raising awareness of the charity, on In-Kind donations and volunteering support.

This is a strategically important role for the charity. The post holder will work very closely with other members of the Corporate and Events team, as well as liaising with the Commercial partnerships and Marketing Communications teams to ensure that we are maximising opportunities across the charity. You will also work with appropriate service delivery colleagues to identify SSAFA funding and project requirements.


To carry out this role successfully you will have some experience in account managing corporate partnerships, with a track record in maximising income. An ideal candidate has some experience in organising overseas treks for corporate partners. Proficient financial forecasting and reporting skills are essential, and you must be a ‘team player’. You will be required from time to time to attend events on behalf of the charity.

The successful applicant will work closely with a Corporate Fundraising Manager, who is tasked with attracting new corporate partnerships and income streams.

SSAFA is an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
