Job description
Hope and Homes for Children is looking for a Direct Marketing Officer to join us and make families, never orphanages the new narrative. As the world recovers from the impact of Covid, there is increased risk of families experiencing the poverty, lack of support and desperation that drives children into orphanages. There is vital work to be done in ensuring this does not happen. This is a deeply rewarding role and an exciting time to join us.

Stepping into the new role of Direct Marketing Officer and part of our Supporters, Legacies & Data team within the Marketing, Communications and Fundraising Directorate (MCF) you’ll be pivotal in ensuring we can drive forward the most sustainable and reliable of our income streams.

You’ll be joining a brave, can-do organisation, and an ambitious, collaborative and multi-skilled team. You’ll be encouraged to think and act big, and you’ll be mandated and supported to do what’s needed to achieve our mission. You’ll work with dedicated, passionate champions who are ready to take bold steps to inspire change - advocating for our cause, engaging individuals and organisations across the globe in the foundational importance of family love for children.

This is a deeply rewarding role and an exciting time to join us. You will join a brave, can-do organisation and do work that matters day in, day out. In the wake of the devastating crisis in Ukraine, our profile as an organisation has been raised and our work is seen by our supporters as more relevant and more important than ever before. You will be encouraged to think and act big and you will be mandated and supported to make things happen. You will work with dedicated, passionate champions who take bold steps to inspire change.

Direct Marketing Officer Requirements:

You will have proven experience of working in a Direct Marketing team or environment, particularly with direct mail as the focus but with good experience in email and SMS marketing. Good experience of using a database to underpin Direct Marketing activity both in planning and analysis is vital as well as experience of briefing and working closely with creative teams and external suppliers.

About Hope and Homes for Children:

Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. Put simply: the last thing an orphanage can provide is the first thing a child needs - someone to love them.

Science shows what we all know, that the bond between a child and their family is vital for their development. Decades of evidence proves that orphanages harm children, subjecting them to high levels of sexual and physical abuse, as well as extreme neglect.

Children always belong in families. They need protection, encouragement, play, laughter and love. They need somewhere to call home and someone to love them. You can help us make this a reality for children.

If you believe every child belongs in a family then join us, as we consign orphanages to history.

To apply, please upload your CV and in place of a covering letter, in no more than 500 words in total, summarise a specific direct marketing campaign you have worked on, outlining the process, output and outcomes (results and learning) and why you believe this best represents your skills and abilities to be successful in this role.

Location: Flexible. We are operating a hybrid working approach and you will need to be able to work from either our head office near Salisbury (East Clyffe, Salisbury, SP3 4LZ) or our London office facilities for part of the week. You will also need to be able to travel to the other location occasionally.

Contract Type: Permanent

Hours: 37.5 with flexibility, as we have generous flexible and home working practises (with the option to consider 4 days a week)

Salary: £27,000 to £34,000 pro-rata, including London Weighting, if located in London, depending on experience.

Closing date for applications is 10th June 2022.

You may have experience of the following: Direct Marketing Officer, Marketing Executive, Marketing Officer, Marketing Manager, Direct Marketing, Charity, Third Sector, NFP, Not For Profit etc.
