Dear Applicant,

Thank you so much for your interest in working at NHS Charities Together as a Corporate Partnerships Manager.

Our charity is on an incredible journey. After a transformational two years, we have recently developed an exciting new brand proposition and identity, to better reflect the organisation we have become and our strategic vision.

The recruitment of this post is part of a commitment to raise awareness of our new brand and the important role of NHS charities, as well as engaging our key supporters.

We are very proud of what we achieve. We are a small, but growing staff team and as a Fundraising Executive you will have a key role to play as we work hard to grow our engagement, support our members, and raise the profile of NHS charities.

If you are passionate about helping the NHS tackle today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities and believe that through supporting NHS charities, we can significantly increase the vital support given to our hospitals, community, mental health, and ambulance services, we would love to hear from you.

About NHS Charities

There are 240 NHS charities across the UK and most of them focus on helping our hospitals do more. Collectively these charities give over £1million every day to the NHS so that people can stay well for longer and get better faster. In recent years NHS charities have funded major capital projects, pioneering research and medical equipment at our hospitals, helping patients access the best possible care when they need it most.

There is so much love for the NHS and this was evident following the launch our Covid-19 Appeal in March 2020, to support staff, volunteers, and patients through the immediate and long-term effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

To date, we have allocated £140 million in a range of projects supporting the NHS. These include counselling services, helplines, and intensive psychological support for staff; patient-focused initiatives like training for emergency responders, research into long COVID, and specialist equipment; and projects designed to make access to healthcare more equal – so the best of NHS care is available to everyone, now and in the future.

NHS charities also play a key role in mobilising volunteers to support NHS staff, brightening wards and waiting areas with colourful and engaging art and building an important link between our hospitals and our communities. Other NHS charities support mental health trusts, community health trusts and ambulance trusts.

These vital funds and services are above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, touching lives and making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.

The Association of NHS Charities & NHS Charities Together

Founded in 2000, the Association of NHS Charities started as an informal group of the largest NHS Charities which came together to provide mutual support and a forum for discussion. Since then, we have changed our name to NHS Charities Together (to better reflect what we do and who we support) and grown steadily, welcoming charities both large and small from across England and Wales, as well as Scotland and Northern Ireland.  Today NHS Charities Together represents 100% of the NHS charity sector in the UK as members.

NHS Charities Together provides a forum for nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaigns, provides advice and guidance to its members, bespoke conferences and training days covering issues and development opportunities for NHS Charities, as well as access to online resources and support through exclusive member pages on the website.
