Direct Marketing Executive – Acquisition (Quality and Engagement)
Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
The Direct Marketing team is responsible for recruiting and retaining support for Unicef’s work from individual members of the public. We do this using a wide range of media including face-to-face, print, DRTV, Outdoor, Radio and digital. We’re a fast-paced, friendly and supportive team where attention to detail and teamwork deliver award winning results.
We are currently recruiting for a Direct Marketing Executive to join our Acquisition team. In particular, you will manage fundraising quality and engagement across a range of media in order to engage and recruit new supporters. You will work with direct marketing suppliers and the inhouse face-to-face team to deliver campaigns and you will provide assistance to colleagues managing direct marketing appeals in response to humanitarian emergencies.
If you already have experience of managing direct marketing-based fundraising campaigns across a range of different media (particularly face-to-face) and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, this role will offer you a great opportunity to learn and develop your existing skills.
To succeed, you should be skilled at managing multiple projects at the same time, and you should have experience of working with income and expenditure budgets. You will possess excellent communication skills to help you to build effective relationships with internal and external contacts in order to deliver campaigns that deliver results for children.
