Head of Partnerships

onHand is a marketplace app that allows people to give and get help, whenever and wherever they are. We’re a start-up that’s enabling “on-demand volunteering”. With over 3000 app downloads and our first 1000+ hours of help now delivered, this is an exciting moment to join us. 

Our focus is using the app to match volunteers with older adults who need help with basic tasks. Things like shopping, tech lessons, help around the house or simply sharing a cup of tea and a chat. In doing so, we believe onHand can help address the growing care crisis facing our ageing population and maybe just leave the world a better place too.

You will be at the heart of everything we do to engage and grow traction with the multiple charity and health service partners now sending customers to onHand. If we are successful, we expect to grow very quickly, expanding across the UK and internationally. The scope for personal and professional growth for any team member joining us at this stage should be tremendous.

What we’re looking for

In a nutshell, we’re interested in your attitude above anything else. Like solving problems, getting things done and not afraid to take on responsibility? Love engaging with new people and have a healthy dose of common sense? Want to help solve one of the greatest problems facing society and leave the world a better place? 

It’s likely you have been working in Partnerships or Account Management roles for the last 2-5 years and have developed views on the approach to engaging and significantly growing relationships for mutual benefit. You’ll be planning, implementing and managing campaigns to drive partner engagement, focusing on supercharging the growth of older adults and their relatives joining and using onHand.

If this sounds exciting to you, get in touch. We’d be excited to hear from you.
