Appointing a Partnership Broker



Partnership brokers often emerge when needed. Partnership brokers often emerge when needed. Indeed, many take on a brokering function without identifying it as such and with little recognition for the work that is being done. However, the importance of the brokering role is becoming increasingly recognised and it is more common now for organisations or partnerships to formally appoint people to the role.

This has implications in terms of:

  • Getting agreement from the partners to the appointment of a broker
  • Outlining the tasks in the form of a role description
  • Advertising the post
  • Interviewing potential candidates
  • Drawing up a contract
  • Reviewing the role
  • Making adjustments as necessary
  • Ensuring the partners are engaged in the process
