Posted on: April 10, 2021

Job Description:

Launched in October 2018, VOW to End Child Marriage -- soon to be reintroduced as VOW for Girls -- is an innovative new social change initiative that aims to galvanize the public and socially conscious brands to raise awareness of this critical and solvable issue and unlock catalytic funding to prevent and end child marriage. Co-founded by global human rights activist Mabel van Oranje and Ford Foundation President Darren Walker, VOW seeks to create new resources to support the 12 million girls' futures a year at risk of child marriage.
VOW is seeking a Head of Partnerships and Business Development (reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer) to spearhead the creation of game-changing partnerships that will create a new source of revenue to support girls around the world to own their futures. Within a few years, we want to see a wide portfolio of brands supporting VOW and raising millions annually. You'll help us achieve that vision.

You are able to motivate individuals at various levels within an organization to take action and are an expert in crafting lucrative partnerships, developing nuanced deals, building relationships with industry leaders, and finding the right champions within organizations to make partnerships happen. You will work closely with VOW's CEO and others on outreach and in developing innovative, creative, customized activation concepts for brand partners, leading the process from initial pitch to partnership launch and beyond.
    • Innovator: You know how to design strategies for partnership positioning, demonstrating business value, and identifying opportunities for shared impact. You can see the long-term vision for the organization and are able to develop a comprehensive, innovative and actionable strategic plan for VOW's partnerships with a focus on generating millions in revenue to support girls.

                • Lead the strategy and execution for corporate service and corporate employee engagement activities such as corporate events, lunch-n-learns, experiential events, and co-creation workshops.
