Do you want to play a key role in an organisation which stands up for children? Then join us as Creative Development Manager. In our newly formed agile marketing model, you are pivotal in shaping the creative direction of our mass marketing and alongside the Director of Brand and Creative, maintaining the highest level of creative excellence through innovative and brand inspiring assets.

Save the Children exists to help every child reach their full potential. In more than 100 countries including the UK, we make sure children stay safe, healthy and keep learning. We find new ways to reach children who need us most, no matter where they're growing up. For a century, we've stood up for children's rights and made sure their voices are heard. Together with children, supporters and partners, we're determined to help every child become who they want to be.

The role sits in the Brand and Creative team in the Fundraising and Marketing Division, and our purpose is to inspire, motivate and mobilise both existing and new supporters, to create positive change for children. Day to day you will be responsible for the overall creative output of our new marketing squads, both as generating and developing ideas and shaping creative output from agencies and our internal Creative team.

• Define emerging trends both at home and abroad and test fresh approaches to ensure our brand remains culturally relevant

• Proactively seek new creative partners, build and maintain relationships with prospective agencies, new artists and freelance talent

• Foster a culture of creativity and innovation within the team

To be successful you will have demonstrable success delivering creative concepts to a client brief with a sound understanding of how audience profiles influence communications products. Strong presentation skills and the ability to ‘pitch' creative ideas are also essential, as is demonstrable knowledge of offline and digital platforms. In addition, you will have:

• Experience of creating content that can be successfully used for purposes of Fundraising, PR or news media exposure

• Exceptional communications skills both written and verbal with the ability to work collaboratively and inspire a team behind an idea or campaign.

• An understanding of customer experience mapping and experience creating content across a broad range of audience touchpoints

• Experience art directing photography and video shoots 

• Excellent stakeholder management skills, including the ability to inspire and mobilise people from diverse business areas, to deliver a coherent strategy meeting multiple objectives
