World Vision works with the most vulnerable children, so they’re empowered to overcome poverty and injustice, and experience fullness of life. Inspired by our Christian faith, we serve alongside children –of all faiths and none –through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy in almost 100 countries.
With over 70 years of experience, our work with communities, donors, partners, and governments transforms lives and creates opportunities for better futures for vulnerable children –even in the toughest places.
Work for World Vision UK and you will be part of a truly global Partnership, building brighter futures for vulnerable children.
Looking to take your fundraising and marketing career to another level and use your skills where they really matter?
We have an exciting opportunity for an exceptional direct marketing professional to join the Supporter Engagement team within our Fundraising group.
With strategic oversight of core fundraising campaigns, you’ll inspire our supporters and raise vital funds to change and improve the lives of millions of vulnerable children around the world. And you’ll develop a nurture journey to ensure our supporters feel valued and see the impact of their giving.
Working across a range of campaigns, each day in this role will be different – from developing testing strategies based on insight and analysis, to input on creative development, agency management, mapping supporter journeys, through to coaching team members in fundraising fundamentals.
As a senior member of the team, you'll be a strategic thinker who can shape and execute fundraising strategies and line manage marketing team members. You’ll see the bigger picture but have an eye for detail and fantastic relationship-building skills. You'll be confident working with data and carrying out rigorous testing and detailed data analysis to understand campaign results. And you’ll have an understanding of digital and multi-channel marketing to maximise fundraising income.
To perform well in this role, you’ll need:
Experience gained in a fundraising, direct marketing, or digital marketing role
Strong project management skills in order to deliver end-to-end marketing campaigns
A track record in analysing direct marketing results and using insight to drive innovation and improve campaign performance
Experience of delivering integrated marketing campaigns across a range of channels including direct mail, online, email, and social media
The ability to work independently to drive innovation, creativity and results
Experience of line-management, supervision or coaching of staff.
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.Like many organisations we’re mainly working remotely right now, and longer-term this role could be carried out in part remotely. The role will have a significant stakeholder management component to it as well as a strong emphasis on networking and relationship building internally, so the postholder would need to embrace hybrid working and being in the Milton Keynes office 1-2 times per week.
