Corporate Manager

Canary Wharf, London. £50-55k p/a + share options

We’re looking for a Corporate Manager to implement our corporate business development strategy, building and activating partnerships that will transform thousands of communities across the UK.

Spacehive is an exciting venture-backed social start-up that’s bringing the crowdfunding revolution to the civic world.

Working closely with the CEO you’ll be required to source, execute and manage innovative, high-value partnerships with a wide range of companies, designed to scale up the impact we make.

For example you might build a partnership with a major bank to match-fund hundreds of playgrounds, or you could get a TV programme commissioned that would see viewers crowdfund epic regeneration projects live on air.

Brand marketing and sponsorship experience is key. We’re looking for a savvy operator who knows how to navigate their field and has a proven track record of delivering impactful partnerships linking brands, social campaigns and the political world.

This is a fabulous opportunity for a passionate marketer looking for an opportunity to make your mark by bringing a big idea to scale.


  • Develop and articulate our value proposition for corporates.
  • Deliver our corporate engagement strategy to secure high value partnerships that both help our users deliver amazing projects and yield significant revenues for Spacehive.
  • Build a high level of awareness of Spacehive in the corporate community – from blue chips with CSR budgets to property developers looking for a new way of engaging local communities to broadcasters keen to discover exciting new trends.


  • Experience of structuring major sponsorship deals
  • Experience of working on projects that straddle branding, social causes, and ideally a bit of politics
  • Project management and budget management ability
  • Consummate networker with enviable knowledge of corporate responsibility marketplace, competitor activity, technical developments and commercial opportunities to aid development of new client relationships.
