SENIOR MARKETING OFFICER – Sponsorship Experience

Salary: £30,763 per annum + good range of benefits

Contract: Permanent – 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.

Job Purpose

Looking to take your marketing career to another level and utilise your skills where they really matter?

We have an exciting opportunity for an exceptional direct marketing professional to join the Sponsorship Experience team within our Fundraising Group. Child sponsorship is the team's core product, and in this role, you’ll take an active lead in delivering a high value sponsorship experience through multi-channel marketing campaigns. These will drive supporter loyalty and satisfaction, helping bring to life the change supporters are making in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.

In the team we love that each day is different - from creating concepts, briefing, copywriting, and design, through to project and agency management, data selection, analysis and insight. As a senior member of the team, you'll be a strategic thinker who can shape and execute innovative product experience strategies, and line manage two mid-level marketing team members. You see the bigger picture but have an eye for detail and fantastic relationship-building skills. You'll be confident working with data and carrying out rigorous testing to prove the impact of campaigns and innovations through detailed data analysis to understand supporter behaviour, measure results and capitalise on future activities and campaigns.

To perform well in this role, you’ll need:

  • Experience gained in a product, digital or direct marketing role
  • Strong project management skills to deliver end-to-end marketing campaigns
  • A track record in analysing direct marketing results and using insight to drive innovation and improve campaign performance
  • Experience of delivering integrated marketing campaigns across a range of channels including direct mail, video, email, online and social media
  • The ability to work independently to drive innovation, creativity and results
  • Experience of line-management, supervision or coaching of staff.

Our Christian identity underpins everything we do, so 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.

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: Wednesday 27th November

Interview Dates: Week commencing 2nd December
