Engage for Success is a growing, dynamic, voluntary movement promoting employee engagement as a better way to work that benefits individual employees, teams, and whole organisations. We want everyone working in the UK to want, and be able, to give their best each day, so that each day is a great day at work, and that workplaces in the UK are thriving, growing and developing through the commitment, energy, and creativity of the people that work in them. Engage for Success is part of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

Overall purpose: To build upon existing relationships between EfS and external partners and organisations; and identify, instigate, nurture and develop new relationships where none currently exist.

EfS currently works with a range of organisations including the Cabinet Office, Royal Society of Arts, Be the Business, Ashridge Hult Executive Education, Bristol Business School, Nottingham Trent University, HM Revenue & Customs, Home Office, Federation of Small Businesses, CBI and a huge range of private sector organisations large and small.

This is a new role as in the current dynamic work environment, people frequently move forward and so organisational links with EfS can easily be lost. The Partner Relationship Manager will keep EfS sighted on activities and developments in external organisations where we can work together, along with keeping EfS's profile high, so that it retains its position as the 'go-to' people for anything employee engagement-related.
