Based: Milton Keynes (Hybrid)

World Vision works with the most vulnerable children, so they’re empowered to overcome poverty and injustice, and experience fullness of life. Inspired by our Christian faith, we serve alongside children – of all faiths and none – through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy in almost 100 countries.

With over 70 years of experience, our work with communities, donors, partners, and governments transforms lives and creates opportunities for better futures for vulnerable children – even in the toughest places.

Work for World Vision UK and you will be part of a truly global Partnership, building brighter futures for vulnerable children.

Job Purpose

Looking for a role where you can really cut your marketing teeth and make a difference?

We have an exciting opportunity for a Marketing Co-ordinator to join the Supporter Engagement team. In the team we love the fact that each day is different - from co-creating concepts, briefing, copywriting, and design, through to project and agency management, data selection, analysis and insight.

Within this role, you'll join a team of experienced marketeers and fundraisers to support the delivery of multi-channel fundraising campaigns to World Vision supporters that demonstrate the difference that they make.

Your day could include gathering content, proof reading, copywriting, handling data and admin support, so strong attention to detail and the ability to multi-task are key. There will also be the chance to manage day-to-day relationships with stakeholders so good relationship building skills are a must, as is the ability to articulate constructive feedback to external agencies.

With strong creativity and attention to detail, we are looking for someone who is excited by the bigger picture, but not daunted by the detail of getting the job done. Someone who can manage multiple projects, has great interpersonal skills and the initiative and drive to make the most of this opportunity. We are looking for a team-player with a can-do approach, someone who is equally at home taking the lead on their own projects, as supporting team members on others.

You will need to ensure our communications truly reflect World Vision’s mission and Christian ethos to our diverse supporter base. Further, you will have access to some of the best Direct Marketing training and thinking in the sector, all the while contributing to changing the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. So, if you believe you have the above qualities as well as a positive, solution-based approach, you could be our ideal candidate.

As an active Christian*, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (MK only).
