Senior Direct Marketing Coordinator (Acquisition)
Amnesty International is renowned and respected the world over for promoting and protecting human rights. Our staff’s dedication and talent has changed and saved countless lives so, as part of our Fundraising department, your work will change lives too.
About the role
In this key role working closely with the Direct Marketing Manager, you’ll help to devise and deliver an effective direct marketing strategy for Amnesty’s Acquisition fundraising programme in the UK. That means managing specific marketing projects through areas such as direct mail, telemarketing, prize led, press, F2F and online channels, forecasting the expected costs and setting income targets, as well as liaising with external suppliers to ensure everything runs smoothly. It also means staying on top of external fundraising opportunities and making recommendations for new and exciting marketing options. Succeed, and you’ll not only help us to invigorate the interest of our existing supporters, you’ll reach out to more people than ever before.
To rise to the challenge, you’ll need experience of managing Acquisition fundraising projects, backed up by a broad understanding of the principles around these. Strong planning and scheduling skills mean you’ll have no problem handling multiple projects, while the ability to analyse and interpret numerical/statistical data will stand you in good stead. And since you'll be building relationships with external agencies as well as other Amnesty UK staff, excellent communication skills are vital.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they are denied. Already our network of over seven million people is making a difference in almost every country in the world. Whether we are applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we are all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are enjoyed by all.
