Region: London  

Directorate: Fundraising 

Contract: Permanent, Full Time, 35 hours per week 

Salary: £37,452 to £39,452 gross per annum including London Weighting 

The Role 

At the Royal British Legion, we believe in building on potential. As a Campaign Manager your ability to manage and develop RBL’s In Memory programme could have a real impact on people’s lives. 

At its heart, RBL is a people organisation. People who want to do the very best for others, while at the same time making the most of the opportunities and experiences we offer them. 

We are the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 210,000 members, 50,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities; helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed. 

As a Campaign Manager, you will be responsible for the implementation of supporter strategy and supporter journeys, marketing and managing the In Memory programme, including the delivery of the annual RBL Fields of Remembrance campaign and events, to deliver significant net income to the charity.

You will oversee stewardship activity to RBL supporters, ensuring an excellent supporter experience, and maximising retention. You will also oversee all marketing activity aimed growing the number of In Memory donations given from within the existing RBL supporter database.  

If successful, the main duties of your role will be: 

  • Plan and manage campaigns to RBL supporters end to end. Marketing channels include direct mail, email, telephone, SMS and supporter stewardship events 

  • Work with the Product Manager – Cash Giving to draft annual and campaign budgets for In Memory programme administration, development and supporter marketing 

  • Provide campaign briefings to supporter care teams and other supporter facing representatives as required. Be responsible for briefing data selections for direct marketing activity, including all segmentation and prompting strategies 

  • Responsible for the line management of a Campaign Co-ordinator, overseeing their day to-day tasks and ensuring that all allocated duties are carried out in an organised and timely manner 

  • Build effective relationships with partner/supplier organisations, managing service delivery to agreed standards and contributing to supplier performance reviews, and contract management as required 

  • To ensure that all activities conform to the Fundraising Regulator’s code of practice, data protection regulations and all other relevant industry regulations 

The successful candidate will have significant experience of delivering marketing strategies and supporter journeys. Significant direct marketing technical experience and skills are essential, consisting of both offline and online communications. Experience of leading, managing, motivating and inspiring a team with a focus on delivering performance excellence is also essential. Knowledge of In Memory products is ideal but not essential. Experience of planning and organising events would also be ideal but not essential. 

This role will involve hybrid working, travelling on some days each week to our Head Office in Borough, London SE1 1AA, and working from home on other days.
