Our client is an established Not-For-Profit organisation providing critical services to the community across Australia. They are seeking a dedicated Commercial Relationships Manager to lead the commercialisation and financial growth of the institute.

The successful candidate will be an important member of the team in fostering and maintaining new and existing partnerships in the corporate sector, as well as the government sector. They will leverage off their existing networks and also be influential in building new relationships to create sponsorship and secure financial funding. Reporting to the Marketing Lead, he/she will build the profile of the organisation through digital media and build upon their history to position the organisation as the thought leader in the field. As part of the growth strategy, they will undergo a detailed market analysis to ensure the identification of potential new relationships are forged. This will then establish themselves as an ambassador to the market.

The ideal candidate will possess a values based approach whilst bringing their strong commercial/ corporate acumen to the position. In addition, you will have a keen interest or experience in a socially responsible organisation. They will have strong interpersonal and communication skills with an emphasis on an ability to write successful proposals, tender responses, grant and other philanthropic proposals. They will be both strategic and operational in their style and have the ability to be flexible with the day to day requirements. The business prides themselves on having a less corporate environment and a 'team player' philosophy to contribute to the broader needs of the business, and therefore is seeking someone of a similar nature.

MBA qualification is mandatory.
