We are seeking a dynamic and collaborative marketing Senior Campaign Manager to lead our flagship perception change campaign This is Engineering, and in doing so to help us tackle the longstanding skills and diversity shortfall in engineering by attracting more young people, from all backgrounds, into the profession.
This is Engineering is a long-term marketing campaign, launched in 2018, that has already had a measurable impact on young people; at its most successful it has increased teens’ likelihood to consider a career in engineering by 85%. A finalist in Third Sector’s Communications Campaign of the Year, This is Engineering is recognised as a genuinely pioneering campaign in the profession and has drawn widespread support from organisations including Rolls-Royce, Amazon, and Google.
As Senior Campaign Manager, you will use your digital marketing expertise to lead This is Engineering into its next phase, helping us to keep the campaign creative fresh, maintain its relevance to teenagers, and grow its reach through increasingly effective channel choice and targeting. You will also help shape the development of a community of This is Engineering champions – young engineers who co-create content with us to share on their own channels as well as ours to reach new audiences. You will work with colleagues and partners to make sure that This is Engineering is changing perceptions well beyond digital channels too: in schools, through STEM ambassadors, at events, and through other marketing and partner channels.
Working alongside the Academy’s media and digital communications teams, you will play a critical role in shaping and delivering National Engineering Day, a national awareness day spun out of This is Engineering to celebrate the impact that engineers have on our lives and broaden public perceptions of engineering. Now in its fourth year, National Engineering Day, formerly known as This is Engineering Day, has consistently mobilised engineers, engineering organisations and influencers across social media to spread the word about engineering, and gained widespread media coverage across broadcast, print and online titles.
Who are we looking for?
You will be an experienced marketing campaign manager with specific expertise in digital marketing and - ideally - experience in running campaigns that have successfully engaged teenagers. You will balance creativity and energy with strong project management skills and a talent for engaging with senior stakeholders. You will be passionate about helping young people shape their futures, and about the opportunities, engineering can offer them.
While marketing is your core expertise area, you will be comfortable working across and alongside a range of communications disciplines and drawing on expertise from these disciplines to develop integrated campaigns. And you'll be a natural collaborator - keen not only to collaborate with colleagues, but also to build networks beyond the Academy in order to increase the reach of the campaign through partnership, keep up to date with best practice and the needs of our community and audiences.
Who are we?

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to dramatically increase income generation from individual giving through supporter attraction and retention, an exceptional donor experience and fostering well-established long-term relationships with UK-Med. Achievement of individual fundraising targets will be underpinned by high quality engagement (digital and print) and proactive use of data analytics.
UK-Med has an ambitious five-year strategy and a goal to generate £1 million per year from voluntary sources by 2026 to fund emergency responses and training for health staff. UK-Med’s income is currently primarily statutory, and the charity is relatively new to fundraising, however voluntary income has quadrupled year on year for the last three years. Earlier this year the board invested in the team to support the delivery of the 2021-2026 Fundraising and Communications strategy. The new Senior Digital Fundraiser will help build on the promising foundations laid to deliver an exciting chapter in the charity’s development.
You will be building on significant work already undertaken in all these areas. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, determined and passionate individual to make a real difference to people who have their lives impacted by disease outbreaks, disasters and war. Experience in the humanitarian or international development sector is desirable, however a keen interest in global affairs and a commitment to UK-Med’s humanitarian mandate are essential.
