About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn new skills.

In October 2015 we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest sustained global efforts to help young people learn about computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

The role

The work of the Raspberry Pi Foundation is supported by a wide range of individuals and organisations who donate their time and expertise as well as providing funds to support our mission. We are now looking for an experienced Senior Partnerships Manager to contribute at a senior level to the development and delivery of the Foundation's partnerships and fundraising strategy.

You will work closely with our Head of Fundraising and Partnerships and the leadership team to nurture existing partnerships and develop new ones. You will also help us expand and scale our partnerships internationally, including in India and North America.

The ideal candidate will have at least five years’ experience of developing and maintaining partnerships in a relevant context, with specific expertise in grant management, impact measurement, and relationship management. You will need to be highly organised and have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment and to manage relationships with multiple partners.

While we expect you to come with an impressive track record, you will be joining a fast-growing non-profit organisation that offers unparalleled opportunities for development and growth.
