Play an important role within our child sponsorship activity

World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We were proud to be voted one of the Top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2014 and 2015 and we are absolutely delighted to be ranked in 9th place in the same category for 2016. 

Operating within our Marketing/Communications Group, this is an excellent chance for you to use your customer relationship, marketing and analytical skills to create and deliver high value face to face fundraising experiences through a range of channels – Retail, Face to Face, Experiential, Private Sites, Door to Door and Festivals. Working closely with our external agencies, the purpose of this role is to maximise the acquisition of high quality child sponsors that World Vision relies upon.

You will manage external agency commercial agreements and build solid relationships with the agency account management team to ensure that processes run smoothly and in line with agreed service levels. Using your creative ability, you will devise and implement solutions that both drive results and improve overall performance. Highly organised and good at problem solving, you will be proficient in Excel and producing reports showing trends with large volumes of data. Managing the sponsorship results provided by the external agency, you will consolidate these into reports for internal and external use, identifying any key trends, causes and possible solutions.

This is a wide-ranging role and we are looking for a Graduate-calibre professional with a track record in delivering against targets. You should be a strong account manager with solid influencing and negotiating skills, not to mention a strategic thinker who is able to tackle any challenges faced. It goes without saying that you will have first class communication skills and are able to deal with a variety of people at different levels, building strong relationships both internally and externally.
