Job description

Based in any UK office (Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London or Manchester)

Do you want to play a key role in an organisation which stands up for children? Join us as a Campaign Manager and be responsible for designing and delivering our public campaigning initially in our mission focusing on delivering change for children in conflict.

Our Policy, Advocacy, and Campaigns department is where we drive political agendas at national and global levels. We've integrated lobbying, policy, research and campaigning into one agile, powerful engine for change. Together, we save children's lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfil their potential.

As Campaign Manager you will lead Save the Children UK's public campaign strategy on one of our priority areas in our SCUK organisational strategy – ensuring that as an organization we're responding to conflicts, emergencies, and child rights abuses around the world.

You will lead on developing and delivering our public campaign strategy, working with colleagues from across the organisation to help us to engage our supporters in our work – the role could see you leading reactive campaigns moments or developing strategies, tactics and approaches that will see you working across our network of shops, developing digital marketing campaigns, or working with our network of campaign volunteers and schools.

Additionally you will:

• Support the development of strong relationships with key campaigning partners and coalitions, actively maintain positive working relationships outside of your role.

• Represent the campaign internally and externally – working closely with public affairs, media, marketing and policy colleagues to deliver change for children.

• Monitor and evaluate campaign activity and contribute to organisational and team evaluations, including commissioning, interpreting and sharing campaigns insight work.

To be successful you will be an experienced campaigner with experience of leading the development and delivery of impactful campaign strategies, and a track record of success. You will have good knowledge of a range of campaigning and organising tactics, as well as significant experience of engaging public audiences to affect policy change. In addition you will:

• Significant experience working with a wide range of campaigning and organising techniques and tactics and across diverse digital platforms

• An understanding and experience of using a theory of change approach to shape campaign strategies

• Be curious about how change happens, willing to experiment with new approaches and explore new approaches,

• Knowledge of international development and / or conflict and humanitarian issues are desirable

• Experience in monitoring and evaluating campaigns and providing reports which track progress.

At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change. Because every child should be able to make their mark on their world, and help to build a better future. We look forward to hearing from you.

Closing date: 15th November 2020

Please note - whilst this role is advertised as office based, Save The Children UK will remain a remote-working organisation until at least 30 June 2021.

We particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, LGBT+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds, as these are underrepresented at Save the Children UK.
