Job Purpose

Looking for a role where you can really cut your marketing teeth and make a difference?

We have an exciting opportunity for a Marketing Co-ordinator to join the Supporter Engagement team. In the team we love the fact that each day is different - from co-creating concepts, briefing, copywriting, and design, through to project and agency management, data selection, analysis and insight.

Within this role, you'll join a team of experienced marketeers and fundraisers to support the delivery of multi-channel fundraising campaigns to World Vision supporters that demonstrate the difference that they make.

Your day could include gathering content, proof reading, copywriting, handling data and admin support, so strong attention to detail and the ability to multi-task are key. There will also be the chance to manage day-to-day relationships with stakeholders so good relationship building skills are a must, as is the ability to articulate constructive feedback to external agencies.

With strong creativity and attention to detail, we are looking for someone who is excited by the bigger picture, but not daunted by the detail of getting the job done. Someone who can manage multiple projects, has great interpersonal skills and the initiative and drive to make the most of this opportunity. We are looking for a team-player with a can-do approach, someone who is equally at home taking the lead on their own projects, as supporting team members on others.

You will need to ensure our communications truly reflect World Visions mission and Christian ethos to our diverse supporter base. Further, you will have access to some of the best Direct Marketing training and thinking in the sector, all the while contributing to changing the lives of some of the worlds most vulnerable children. So, if you believe you have the above qualities as well as a positive, solution-based approach, you could be our ideal candidate.

As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (MK only).
