Position: European Director, Corporate Alliances

Salary: £70,000 subject to experience
Closing date: 20/05/2018 (day/month/year)
The creation of Make-A-Wish was
inspired in the U.S. in 1980 by the fulfillment of a wish of a 7-year-old boy
with leukemia named Chris Greicius, who wished to be a policeman. His mother,
several friends and a group of police officers, with the cooperation of the
Arizona Department of Public Safety, granted his wish with a custom-made
uniform, helmet, badge, and helicopter ride! After the wish, those involved
were inspired and eager to bring that same hope, strength and joy they saw as a
result of Chris’ wish, to more children. Watch the amazing, true story of
Make-A-Wish's founding and how one community came together to bring a
life-changing wish to life here.
After the start of Make-A-Wish in the
United States, interest in granting the wishes of children with
life-threatening medical conditions quickly spread to other nations. In 1993, Make-A-Wish International was officially formed to serve five countries
outside the U.S. - and now helps to serve children outside the United States in
more than 50 countries on five continents through its 41 affiliates.
Make-A-Wish has collectively granted approximately nearly 450,000 wishes
worldwide since 1980.
This position is responsible for
developing new corporate partnerships across Europe and for securing cash and
donations-in-kind for Make-A-Wish. Under the direction of the Make-A-Wish
International Corporate Alliances team in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and working in

The individual will prospect and
