Hey there, come join our team and help us build a better world.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone looking to play a leading role in a small but influential national charity building a positive legacy for the late Jo Cox MP. We are looking for someone with a track record of winning and managing mutually beneficial corporate partnerships. You’ll help us grow our income from this stream, and help play a key role in continuing Jo Cox’s legacy over the years to come.


As Corporate Partnerships Manager at the Jo Cox Foundation you'll lead on building mutually-beneficial corporate partnerships, providing much-needed income to support our work on areas that Jo Cox was passionate about. 

Traditionally, the Jo Cox Foundation has been largely funded by grants from trusts and foundations. As part of our work to diversify our income, we have identified corporate partnerships as an area with particular growth potential. As our first ever Corporate Partnerships Manager, you will be expected to hit the ground running, taking our existing packages and prospect lists to secure quick wins.

On top of this, you’ll develop our plans and strategy to secure sustainable corporate partnerships, so that in the medium term we can establish this as a secure and lucrative income stream for the Foundation.

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to develop this area of work at the Foundation, funding the work that we do, and making an increased impact to build a positive legacy for Jo. 


We’re looking for someone who is engaged, positive, and happy to work both as part of a team, but also on their own initiative. Ability to communicate at all levels, verbally and in writing, is essential. You’ll need to be able to prioritise your workload and make effective, timely decisions.

You’ll have experience of new business/sales and account management, ideally within the charity sector, though we are open to considering other experience. You’ll be proficient in building mutually-beneficial relationships with funders or clients. You’ll also understand the corporate fundraising environment in the UK and the different options available for charities to secure funds from corporates.

In addition, you will have strongly held personal values which align with The Jo Cox Foundation’s vision and Jo’s ‘more in common’ ethos. These will be reflected in your respect for others and the desire to make a truly positive contribution through your work.


The Jo Cox Foundation was established in 2016 by the friends and family of the late Jo Cox MP. The Foundation exists to make positive change on issues that Jo was passionate about. Just as she did, we believe in working together effectively with individuals and organisations that share the belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.

We build stronger communities, encourage more respectful politics and advocate for a fairer world in Jo’s name. To date, our campaigns and initiatives have addressed a broad range of issues including tackling loneliness, reducing abuse and intimidation in public life and preventing atrocities in conflict-affected countries. No one day is ever the same as the next! 

Too often our politics and society emphasises our differences rather than our commonality. We believe that helping people to recognise that commonality allows us to feel more connected, build empathy and increase trust. It also builds understanding of the stark inequalities that many groups face within our society and strengthens the collective will to take action. Though we cannot address the root cause of all inequalities, we commit to championing change and advocating for action. 


One of our core values at The Jo Cox Foundation is empathy, and we work hard to apply this to our relationships with our staff as well within the work that we do.

We provide a flexible workplace with office space in Batley, West Yorkshire and London, and we also offer options for hybrid and remote working. We recognise the challenges that this brings, so we carefully consider how we can build a team culture where everyone feels accepted and included. We do this through monthly team days (with a mixture of remote and in-person days) and through regular and ongoing ways for the team to connect, both for work and to socialise.
