Use your marketing skills where they really matter
World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We're also proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2015’.
Looking for a new marketing role, but one where you can also really make a difference?
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Marketing Officer to join the Sponsorship Experience team. In the team we love the fact that each day is different - from creating concepts, briefing, copywriting, and design, through to project and agency management, data selection, analysis and insight. Within this role, you'll deliver exceptional experiences for our World Vision child sponsors through the development and delivery of timely, high-value and inspiring multi-channel marketing campaigns that demonstrate the difference their sponsorship is making. This in turn increases sponsor loyalty and retention, and deepens engagement between the sponsor and child.
This role will give you the opportunity to develop new and innovative ways of communicating the impact our donors are making. It will be your job to ensure our sponsor communications truly reflect World Vision’s mission and Christian ethos to our diverse supporter base.
Working alongside our data team, you'll have the chance to understand supporter behaviour, as well as measure results and capitalise on future activities and campaigns. You will plan, build and extract data using our CRM system and work with other data stakeholders in the organisation.
You will create compelling copy content, as well as manage relationships with our design, print, digital and film agencies, so that you work collaboratively to produce emotive communications that ‘reach’ our supporters and bring to life the change they are making.
With a relevant degree in direct and/or digital marketing, and a good level of direct marketing, statistics and data analysis/insights experience, you will be an excellent communicator with a creative outlook, have an eye for detail and fantastic relationship-building skills. You relish the opportunity to deliver multi-channel campaigns, and use data and customer insights to help develop new ideas.
As a Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith within World Vision UK and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.
This is a truly rewarding role within a place where your skills really matter. In addition to the salary indicated, you will enjoy a good range of benefits, including a pension, subsidised gym membership, generous holiday entitlement and free parking.
Interested in joining the team? Along with your CV, please write a covering letter explaining why you want the role and how your experience meets the requirements set out in the job description.
