Corporate Partnership Manager

We believe that no horticulturist should be denied help simply because they are not aware of Perennial. We are committed to a future in which every horticulturist in the UK is aware of us, understands what help they can receive from us, and is confident to get in touch should they need our help. To help us achieve our vision we need more people to know about Perennial so forging links and partnerships with horticulture industry companies is a focus area of growth for us in 2019.

We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic corporate fundraiser or sales person to join our passionate team. In this role you will develop and grow the number of companies who become corporate partners who will support us through donations, fundraising events and ensuring their staff and others in the area know about us so they can benefit from the services we offer.
