Overview of this role

The King’s Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England. We help to shape policy and practice through research and analysis; develop individuals, teams and organisations; promote understanding of the health and social care system; and bring people together to learn, share knowledge and debate. Our vision is that the best possible care is available to all.

The King’s Fund’s Corporate Partnerships team has grown over the past three years, generating nearly 30 per cent extra income in 2016 compared to 2014. With the launch of a third membership programme in 2017, the team requires an enthusiastic and capable assistant to support the team in continuing to drive this growth to support the vision of The King’s Fund.

This is an ideal role for those looking to develop skills and experience across both corporate partnerships and events.

Working as part of the Corporate Partnerships team you will:

  • Support the planning, marketing and delivery of jointly-held events with the Fund’s corporate partners and supporters and as part of the Digital health SME programme.
  • Support the Corporate Partnerships Manager and Account Manager in ensuring high standards of relationship management are maintained with existing partner companies.
  • Assist the development of the Corporate Partnership team’s business development plan, through the identification and research of potential new partner companies as well as the undertaking of other administrative tasks as required.

You’ll have excellent organisation skills, and ideally experience of working in an events, corporate partnerships or sales team, in a paid or voluntary capacity.

The role will include working at occasional early morning and evening events.

In addition to a competitive salary, The King’s Fund offers generous holiday entitlements, a £3 daily discount in our café and an on-site gym.
