Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
The Gifts in Wills fundraising team promotes the opportunity of leaving a gift in a will to Unicef to the public, creating engaging supporter journeys for those considering leaving a gift in their will and building relationships with supporters who have committed to doing this.
As Supporter Engagement Officer, you will work on a wide range of channels, including direct mail, telemarketing, digital and face to face. You will be responsible for promoting gifts in wills messaging among existing Unicef supporters and providing high quality stewardship for those who express and interest in this way of supporting children.
It is an exciting time to join the Gifts in Wills team at Unicef, as we build on our new creative expression and strategy and work on innovative, exciting engagement projects for 2021. We are looking for a candidate with a supporter-centric attitude, the flexibility to work across multiple channels and strong analytical skills.
Closing date: 5pm, Thursday 28 January 2021.
Interview date: Thursday 11 February 2021 via MS Teams.
