We are looking for an Impact Partnerships Manager who can help Simprints, a nonprofit tech company based in Cambridge, increase its reach and impact with our partners around the world - NGOs, social enterprises, and governments. You are confident, passionate, reliable, deeply collaborative, a quick learner, and thrive in a fast-paced, start-up environment. From one day to the next you might be meeting with senior officials of an NGO in Washington DC, scoping a cash transfer project for refugees across East Africa, negotiating the final terms of a partnership for a nation-wide project with a Ministry of Health, or presenting on stage in India to hundreds of ICT4D specialists.


-Conduct meetings and calls with potential impact partners to identify their pain points and challenges, and explore how Simprints can add value to their work.
-Own, continuously improve, and manage our client pipeline from start to finish: screening, qualifying, quoting, negotiating.
-Draft, test, and implement sales collaterals such as project quotes, in-person presentations, and scopes of work.
-Generate leads through outbound work at industry events, conferences, and deployment trips.
-Support in developing, testing, and implementing business models that help Simprints maximise its impact while becoming financially sustainable.
-Represent Simprints at ICT4D events globally and build strong relationships with clients, commercial partners, policy makers, and thought leaders.
-Maintain and continuously improve the Simprints customer relationship management (CRM - Salesforce) system to power and streamline our sales activities.


We are looking for full-time candidates with the right skillset to join a fast-paced start-up environment and take on significant responsibility from day one. You will have the ambition to eventually own our increasing funnel of impact partnerships - currently over 170 for-impact organisations across 45 countries and every sector of international development. Simprints is planning to go from grant funding -> 100% earned revenue driven within 3 years, something few, if any, social enterprises have achieved to date. Your work with our impact partners will lead the cutting-edge of social enterprise work globally, and grow your responsibility and leadership far faster than most roles.


-Communications. You are an outward looking, confident communicator, in writing and verbal form. You have the ability to appropriately adapt your message to your audience, listen patiently, and ask thoughtful questions.
-Client focus. You are a warm and empathetic individual who can build lasting positive relationships with people based on trust, respect, and reliability.
-Analytic mindset. You are sharp with an ability to understand, structure, analyse, and rigorously solve problems you encounter.
-Commitment. You are passionate about our cause and truly believe in its social impact. You know how to manage your time, when to ease off vs. when to go give it all and go the extra mile.
-Integrity. You have a strong moral grounding and will not compromise on values under any circumstances.
-Initiative. You can juggle several things at the same time, switch between tasks, and jump on whatever fire is burning most. You don’t mind picking up the phone to cold-call someone when needed.
-Resilience. You are persistent and don’t allow setbacks to drag you down. Instead, you extract key learnings, turn them into opportunities for growth, and move on quickly.
-Teamwork. You are independent and reliable, but also quick in asking for and extending help to others. You thoroughly enjoy working in a small, agile, fast-paced team.
