35 hours per week

Permanent

In 2017/18 the National Deaf Children’s Society aims to raise £22 million to fund our range of services and campaigning work, around 90% of which will be generated through the activities of the Supporter Marketing team. We have ambitious plans to continue the growth that has seen us increase fundraising income by over half over the last five years and allowed us to extend the reach of our services.

This position is an opportunity to be a key member of a crucial team, and to be involved in testing new ideas and propositions for both National Deaf Children’s Society and Deaf Child Worldwide (the international arm of National Deaf Children’s Society).

As the direct marketing executive you will be responsible for delivering supporter retention campaigns for our 160,000 National Deaf Children’s Society and Deaf Child Worldwide regular supporters and 35,000 cash and raffle donors. You will ensure our campaigns are delivered in time and on budget, including: direct marketing appeals, raffles, telephone reactivation and upgrade campaigns, supporter magazines, and online communication channels.

Working as part of the Supporter Marketing team you will contribute to planning and implementing our supporter retention communications. You will have experience of marketing campaigns either within a charity or other environment. You will be an effective communicator with strong project management skills and good creative/copywriting skills. Previous experience of telephone fundraising is an advantage.
