City Year is seeking a Boston-based National Corporate Partnerships Manager, a strong and thoughtful relationship-builder leading growth of City Year’s emerging corporate funders and existing national partners to support our mission to enable students succeed. You will have the opportunity to lead on an initial portfolio of partnerships that will focus on workforce development and college & career readiness. This role will have a direct impact on our ability to support our mission to prepare students with the skills and mindsets to thrive in school and in life.
In this role, you will ensure that we meet our strategic objective of engaging companies in the education and national service agenda by building and maintaining integrated partnerships that advance the goals of both City Year and the partnering company. As an engaging communicator and project manager, you’ll serve as the main relationship lead for a portfolio of national corporate partnerships by proactively assessing stakeholder needs and going above and beyond to ensure partnership satisfaction. You’ll hold regular check-ins, deliver reports and guide the strategic growth of those partnerships.
You will be responsible for collaborating with various City Year departments (e.g., Communications, Marketing, Program Design, etc.), senior leadership and staff at our 29 City Year sites across the country to manage, activate partnership elements and grow our corporate partnerships – an excellent opportunity to learn about all facets of the organization and build strong working and collaborative relationships. You’ll coach our sites on key corporate partner initiatives and provide information and resources to assist their work locally. In addition, you will gather data and impact stories and collaborate with our Marketing and Communications team to support the communications strategies (e.g., social media, blogs, etc.) to showcase the impact of our partnership and demonstrate a return on investment to our partners.
A life-long learner, you will be curious and eager to understand all you can about the corporate partners you work with. You’ll be a passionate advocate for the responsibility and opportunity that companies have to positively impact the communities in which they operate. And as you quickly build rapport with your portfolio of corporate partners, you’ll identify opportunities to inspire and grow those relationships into larger, multi-year commitments that invest in the success of our City Year AmeriCorps Members and the students, schools and communities that they serve.
Your outcomes will include:
1) Successfully managing a portfolio of corporate partnerships for this current fiscal year, delivering on all elements of our agreements with them and reporting back to the companies about the return on their partnership investment.
2) Generating renewed and increased commitments from current and potential corporate partners for the following fiscal year.
3) Providing ongoing communication and effective coaching to engage and support site development teams in driving corporate partnership success.
4) Supporting corporate revenue strategies and tactics that enable continued growth of corporate partner investment in City Year’s long-term impact
