Fundraising Product Manager
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.
Direct Marketing at Unicef UK is responsible for recruiting and developing support for Unicef’s work for children from individual members of the public. We do this using a range of fundraising products, reaching people across a wide range of media channels including (but not limited to) Direct Mail, DRTV, Email, Telephone, Paid Search, Social and Display. In 2018 we launched two new fundraising products. Both pilots were successful, and now we are looking to grow these products in 2019.
We are recruiting for a Fundraising Product Manager to lead exploration, development and marketing of these existing fundraising products: Paddington’s Parcels (a virtual giving families product brought to life by Paddington the Bear https://market.unicef.org.uk/paddington-bear-parcels/) and Water Walk (a mass participation virtual walking challenge https://waterwalk.unicef.org.uk/). Products must be delivered to time and within budget and meet Unicef UK’s strategic objectives and you’ll be critical in helping us achieve our ambitious goals and growth targets.
To succeed in this role, you’ll be passionate about delivering outstanding supporter experience, while maximising our opportunities to earn even more income for children. Solid experience of fundraising products is essential. You’ll be an enthusiastic, dynamic and resilient team player, willing to get stuck in and take two products that have shown promise at pilot stage onto the next stage of the product lifecycle.
You will need to be adept at stakeholder management and possess excellent communication skills that help you build strong relationships with colleagues and external agencies. You must also be skilled at managing multiple projects at the same time while maintaining a high level of drive and commitment.
This is a fixed term role until end December 2019.
Closing date: 5pm, Tuesday 7 May 2019
Interview date: Friday 17 May 2019
