Job description

Share ideas & passion for Experiential marketing while helping change children's lives for the better.

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 were proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2014 and 2015 and we’re absolutely delighted to be ranked in 9th place in the same Top 100 Not-for-Profit Category for 2016.

Rarely does an exciting leadership role of this nature become available at World Vision UK. Capitalising on our existing success, we’re keen to attract a resourceful and creative Experiential Marketing Manager to join our Supporter Growth, Marketing & Communications team and take our experiences schedule to another level. Ultimately we want to engage, inspire and attract a new generation of supporters to join us via a range of channels, so if you have a talent for leading the successful development and implementation of events and programmes (however zany, novel or unique) to provide fantastic, high-level experiences in the best locations, then this could be the perfect role for you.

You’ll be leading Experiential team members as well as agency / location partners to ensure World Vision UK delivers innovative experiences in the retail, private site and event space and on a day-to-day basis, you will:
• Oversee marketing, promotions & testing schedules to ensure experiences are always fresh and stimulating
• Lead, develop and oversee a locations strategy that is aligned to World Vision’s target audience and vision
• Build/secure relationships with key stakeholders and negotiate the best and most viable commercial contracts
• Encourage strategic alliances and provide opportunities to become a valued and long-term CSR partner.
Ensuring World Vision’s Christian identity is upheld and affirmed throughout the Experiential process is key and, as a Christian yourself, you will have the opportunity to integrate your faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.
Degree qualified or equivalent, you’ll need suitable Experiential marketing experience, possibly gained within an Experiential agency or in the fundraising / charity sector. A results-driven, inspiring and strategic leader, you’ll need excellent people and budget management experience. Exceptional communication, relationship-building and networking skills are vital for this exciting role.

As well as the salary indicated, you can expect benefits including pension, subsidised gym membership, generous holiday entitlement and free parking.
