Head of Strategic Partnerships

An innovative, not-for-profit environmental consultancy, utilising satellites, big data, AI and machine learning in its global service provision, seeks an intellectually curious, ambitious and experienced business development professional to lead its Strategic Partnerships team.

Candidates should have demonstrable experience of managing key relationships across any or all of the following sectors: government, NGOs, IGO’s, philanthropic foundations or B2B.  Of primary importance is a track record of delivering successful bids of varying sizes from simple RFPs to larger formal tenders.  In parallel, an ability to manage complexity in a calm and focused manner, simultaneously handling multiple relationships, RFPs and tenders, will be important.  We’d also be keen to understand your ability to “close” in a timely manner.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate good written and presentational skills.  Applications should include a CV, ideally no longer than 2 sides of A4 and a covering letter; not just telling us why they’d like to join us, but if they’ve not previously worked in a similar organisation, articulating how their skills and experience can be transferred.

Applications should be sent to join@oceanmind.global and applicants are encouraged to apply without delay, as interviews and the appointment will be driven by finding the right person, not a calendar schedule.

About Us

The ocean is essential for human wellbeing. Three billion people rely on the ocean for food, one in eight of us depend on the sea for jobs, and we all rely on the ocean’s natural cycles to survive.

Using satellites, big data, and artificial intelligence, OceanMind’s advanced technology sifts through the swarm of human activity on the ocean every second, understands who is working legally, and who is violating the rules of ocean use, so we can help provide enforcement agencies with actionable intelligence.

OceanMind changes the game, making the invisible, visible, and the unknown, known.  So, if you come and work with us, you will be joining an exciting organization experiencing year on year double digit growth.  If you’re of an ambitious nature, with a social and environmental conscience, there is incredible opportunity to develop your professional career, helping us to deliver “good,” by addressing some of the major environmental issues currently facing humanity across the globe.

“Come and help us change lives and protect the Ocean”

Note – We support flexible, remote working, but once COVID restrictions allow, there will be some requirement to attend the organisation’s offices in Harwell, Oxfordshire and in due course the role will involve some international travel in order to foster relationships with key partners.
