Marketing Coordinator, Sponsorship Experience

Salary: £21,985 per annum + good range of benefits

Contract: 12 months – 36.5 hours per week

Based: Milton Keynes

World Vision is an international children’s charity working with children, their communities, and with supporters and partners, in almost 100 countries.

Through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy we’ve helped bring lasting change to millions of children, over more than 60 years. And as a Christian organisation, everything we do is motivated by our faith as we strive to reflect God’s unconditional love.

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

Use your marketing skills where they really matter

Looking for a new marketing role, but one where you can also make a difference? We have an exciting opportunity for a Marketing Coordinator to join the Sponsorship Experience team. In the team we love the fact that each day is different - from creating concepts, briefing, copywriting, and design, through to project and agency management, data selection, analysis and insight.

Within this role, you'll support the delivery of key multi-channel marketing campaigns and field communications to give sponsors a high value experience that increases sponsor loyalty and retention and deepens engagement between the sponsor and child. You'll have the opportunity to truly immerse yourself within a busy marketing environment, providing support on our flagship marketing campaigns.

Your day could include gathering content, proof reading, copywriting, storyboarding videos, handling data, or updating online content on our sponsor portal - My Sponsorship, 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 designers, copywriters and colleagues overseas.

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 sponsor 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 indicated, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (MK only).

Please upload your CV of full employment history explaining any gaps of employment and reasons for leaving your previous employer. This must be accompanied with a covering letter stating how you meet the essential criteria given in the Job Description.

Closing Date for applications: Monday 28th October

Interview Dates: w.c. Monday 28th October
