Supporter Acquisition Officer
Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.
The Public Engagement department strategically combines fundraising, major partnerships, campaigns, and communications to raise funds and create a shift in public opinion on international children’s development and rights issues by mobilising the income, resources and forces that are needed to support our work. Our Individual Giving Unit recruits, retains and develops the support of individuals and households in the UK. We have an opportunity for a talented Supporter Acquisition Officer to help recruit regular givers.
You will manage supporter recruitment campaigns across a range of media and channels, including Direct Dialogue (Face to Face), DRTV, telephone and inserts. This will include briefing and managing relationships with account teams at media, creative, fundraising and call-handling agencies, and seeking continuous improvement of campaigns though research, testing and evaluation. You will also maximise income of supporters through optimising response and minimising campaign costs, and will work with colleagues to ensure new supporters and enquirers receive the best possible experience.
You will have experience of working in a fundraising/marketing environment, specifically in direct marketing and of managing campaigns for acquisition direct marketing appeals across different channels. You will be able to evaluate and amend copy and creative to ensure best possible results, applying your in-depth understanding of the fundraising environment and your knowledge of international development issues.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 26 November 2018
Interviews will take place on Monday 3 December 2018
