Job Description

Location: Haywards Heath, UK

Salary: £35,000 - £42,000

Closing Date: 25 November 2018

We are on the brink of achieving an historic moment. A disease that has been around since the ancient Egyptians is about to be eliminated and Sightsavers will play a leading role. Trachoma, an eye infection that causes excruciating pain and eventual blindness, has been around for millennia. With the help of partners we are hoping to eliminate the disease by 2025. The plan is to use this opportunity to launch and run a global public facing fundraising and marketing campaign, to capitalise on this unique experience to galvanise public support and raise awareness of Sightsavers and its overall aims.

The ‘End is in Sight' campaign will be a 3 year appeal to take us to the point of Trachoma elimination and this role is a unique opportunity to play your part in achieving history.

The Global Appeals Marketing Manager will be crucial in the development of the campaign and will be responsible for co-ordinating and delivering the campaign across multiple countries. Utilising excellent project management skills, the role will pull together many strands and stakeholders to make the whole greater than the sum of its parts.

With a combination of business as usual fundraising and comms activity, capitalising on external events and partner activity, the post holder will deliver a successful and powerful global campaign for Sightsavers. They will co-ordinate and project manage the ‘End is in Sight’ global fundraising and marketing campaign launching in November 2018 and develop an overarching campaign plan.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience of marketing/ communications or fundraising. Experience of developing major campaigns and bringing together different teams and working with stakeholders is vital, as is previously managing suppliers and creative and PR agencies.

The successful candidate will be a strategic thinker and be able to translate concepts into effective plans, have excellent interpersonal, communication and negotiation skills, and have a proven record of strategy development, project management and planning skills.
