Virgin Unite is the charitable foundation of the Virgin Group and the Branson family. Virgin Unite was started with the aim of bringing people together to encourage them never to accept the unacceptable, to turn challenges into opportunities and to always push boundaries that make both business and the world better. Virgin Unite’s goal is to unite people and entrepreneurial ideas to create opportunities for a better world. There are so many challenges facing the world today, but by bringing the right people together and taking an entrepreneurial approach, we can create positive change. We know we can’t change the world on our own, so we bring together entrepreneurs, philanthropists and inspirational leaders – then we collaborate for good. We want to form a powerful global community able to drive change.
We are now seeking a Director of Community and Partnerships who will continue to build upon the thriving community of donors and partners for Virgin Unite. The successful candidate will be driven by impact and thrive in entrepreneurial and fast-moving environments. The Director of Community and Partnerships will report to Virgin Unite’s President and collaborate with a dynamic and engaged Board of Trustees to nurture close relationships with existing partners as well as create and implement a strategy to grow the engagement and impact of the Constellation social enterprise.
The Director of Community and Partnerships serves as a key leadership team member and an active participant in making strategic decisions affecting Virgin Unite’s Community. In partnership with the President, this position is responsible for creating and overseeing the annual calendar of “experiences that matter” and engaging new and existing member’s participation in these events. The successful candidate will help steward current partners, and forge new relationships to build Virgin Unite’s membership base. Supervising the Membership and Events team, the Director will have primary responsibility for establishing and implementing a new communications and relationship building strategy and develop and launch a portfolio of engagement services for the Constellation; including mentoring opportunities, funding opportunities, business innovation services, and local fundraising events.
If you are a creative, strategic and entrepreneurial leader with demonstrable experience and success in relationship building as well as a clear alignment with the vision, mission and values of Virgin Unite, then we look forward to hearing from you.
