IRC-UK is part of the IRC global network, which has its headquarters in New York and London. The IRC is on the ground in more than 40 countries, providing emergency relief, relocating refugees and rebuilding lives in the wake of disaster. Through 22 regional offices in cities across the United States, the IRC also helps refugees resettle in the US and become self-sufficient.
Their European headquarters, IRC-UK, were established in London in 1997 to support the organisation’s global activities and particularly to diversify its donor base and be able to better advocate with European policy-makers on behalf of the people they serve. Since its establishment IRC-UK has grown rapidly and is now acknowledged for its high quality project management, technical expertise in governance and rights and economic recovery, and innovative thinking on early recovery and gender based violence.
IRC-UK’s fundraising capability and income has grown significantly over the past three years. There are ambitious plans to continue this trend and significantly increase income over the next three years.
Reporting to the Corporate Partnerships Manager, the Corporate Partnerships Executive will support the scale-up and delivery of IRC UK’s leading corporate partnership with Citi and the partnership programme more broadly. The flagship partnership currently supports building livelihoods for refugees and displaced people in Greece, Nigeria and Jordan. The extension of the grant means that the programme will also launch in Lebanon, Cameroon and Germany in 2020 and the Corporate Partnerships Executive will be pivotal to the success of this expansion.
The position is newly created in recognition of the team’s quickly growing portfolio of partners and their ambitious goals to raise more funds and reach even more people whose lives have been affected by conflict across the world in 2020.
As part of this, the Corporate Partnerships Executive will also work closely with the Head of Corporate and the wider team in delivering high-class cultivation, stewardship and communication to the IRC’s partners and prospects. This role will be pivotal in executing the corporate strategy to secure and deliver world-class, pioneering partnerships for the IRC.
