About us

Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. We are a global movement of people, churches and local organisations who passionately champion dignity, equality and justice worldwide. We are the changemakers, the peacemakers, the mighty of heart.

About the role

This role delivers direct marketing and digital fundraising campaigns to recruit new individual supporters. This includes a focus on Christian Aid Week, our most significant moment in the year for generating new leads and donors. The role holder will contribute to the development of the right products, channels and messaging to attract new donors as the first step in building a long-term supporter relationship.

The post holder will work on key projects across Lead Gen, Social, Value Exchange and a range of campaigns focusing on both Christian Aid's Campaigning and Humanitarian work.

About you

You will be a positive, hardworking and friendly professional. Several years experience working in an Individual Giving function in a charity or a similar Direct Marketing role in an organisation or company that has worked with the charity sector. You will have experience of running campaigns which are already in place and also starting new pilots from briefs you are issued with.

Experience on Acquisition campaigns is useful but not essential. Experience of briefing and feeding back to agencies is very useful. You should be flexible with working in a team and be happy to support colleagues on their projects where needed. You should be organised and have attention to detail with tasks like invoicing, results recording and so on. You should also be able to understand KPIs and trends and make recommendations for improving campaigns.

Further information

This role requires applicants to have the right to work in the country where this position is based.

From 1 July 2021, the process for completing right to work checks has changed and we can no longer accept EU passports or ID cards as valid proof of right to work, with the exception of Irish citizens.

There are now two types of right to work checks: a manual check and an online check. A manual check can be completed against relevant documentation as outlined by the Home Office. An online check can be completed if you hold digital proof of your immigration status in the UK. We will require your share code and date of birth to carry out this check. Please see for more information on acceptable documents.

All successful candidates will require either a Basic or Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service certificate (DBS) and a Counter Terrorism Sanction check as part of your clearance for commencing your role with us. Information will be forwarded to you by the HR team with your offer.

We value diversity and aspire to reflect this in its workforce. We welcome applications from people from all sections of the community, irrespective of race, colour, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.

Christian Aid is committed to providing a safe and trusted environment for every person connected to the work we do; and to preventing any type of unwanted behaviour including sexual harassment and exploitation, abuse, and financial misconduct. Any candidate offered a job with Christian Aid is expected to share and demonstrate our values and adhere to Christian Aid's Safeguarding policy and sign Christian Aid's Code of Conduct.

You can expect a wide range of rewards and benefits, including a generous holiday allowance, a season ticket loan, and flexibility that will ensure you enjoy a good work/life balance.

Interviews will be held on 6th & 7th September 2021
