Job description

Our recent projects include undertaking emergency evacuations near the front line in Ukraine, humanitarian aid deliveries in hard-to-reach areas in Ukraine, Syria, Turkey, Greece and France and supporting an education centre for Syrian refugee children in Jordan. All of which represent hundreds of interesting and important stories which we’d like your help in sharing with our audience. 

 

Our unique way of operating via an online shop, allows the public to purchase aid directly for refugees in need, reducing costs, timescales and supporting local economies.

 

We’re looking for a creative and self-motivated individual with a diverse skill set to join our small but mighty team. The individual will be responsible for planning and designing engaging content for our social channels and running end-to-end campaigns in order to grow our following and engagement and increase donations. As a charity, free marketing channels such as social media, press and email are some of our main focuses and revenue drivers. We’re looking for someone who lives, eats and breathes social media, has an eye for design, can edit videos and is passionate about educating the public about the refugee crisis. 

 

This is a dynamic role which will involve working with a close knit team and gaining exposure to all areas of the charity’s operations and may involve occasional international travel to our project locations.

 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Managing our social channels, growing our digital audience and visibility and retaining and reengaging our existing following.

  • Using new and existing marketing channels to reach a greater audience and encourage more donations.

  • Marketing our online aid shop to increase awareness and revenue and encourage repeat purchases/subscriptions.

  • Exploring new content channels on new and existing platforms such as TikTok and Instagram reels.

  • Obtaining and/or writing engaging stories for our blog which can also be shared via email and social media.

  • Developing and executing fundraising campaigns.

  • Generating income for the charity via a variety of income streams such as grants, sponsorships, partnerships, fundraisers etc.

  • Crafting press releases and liaising with local, national and international press to give quotes and gain coverage.

  • Designing marketing materials for use on and offline including social media posts, campaign material, signage, posters, leaflets etc.

  • Update, analyse and optimise our website.

  • Collaborate with other team members to ensure smooth running of campaigns.

 

Experience:

  • 1-3 years experience of planning and producing a schedule of engaging content for use on a variety of different social media platforms.

  • Proven record in growing social media following and engagement.

  • Designing clear and attention-grabbing imagery for use on a variety of different marketing channels.

  • 1-3 years experience running marketing campaigns in order to generate revenue - ideally for a charity or non-profit organisation. 

  • Experience writing compelling press releases and working with local, national and international press to gain coverage - desirable.

  • A previous role within the non-profit sector and/or knowledge of the refugee crisis - desirable.

  • Experience working with partners from different countries and cultures and dealing with sensitive personal stories or information - desirable.

 

Skills:

  • Crafting engaging, written content in the form of blog entries, emails, website content and social media captions.

  • An eye for design - the ability to identify captivating photography with good composition and use online design programmes to produce imagery to accompany our campaigns.

  • A self-starter and motivated person who is able to proactively identify new opportunities and has the confidence to pursue them.

  • An interest in geopolitics and learning more about the complex factors and nuances which play into the refugee crisis as well as an empathetic approach and genuine desire to help others.

  • Flexible and collaborative in your working approach.

 

In return, you’ll work as part of a fun, flexible team of people with shared motivations and interests. You’ll gain exposure to the workings of a charitable organisation and have ownership over your own campaigns - directly seeing your impact first hand.

 

You’ll be entitled to 28 days annual leave per year, which increases one day with each year of service. The position is on a remote basis but with the opportunity for some travel to both our head office in Tonbridge, Kent and internationally to the location of our projects.
