Direct Marketing Manager
Fixed term until end December 2019
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 products, reaching people across a wide range of media including (but not limited to) Direct Mail, Email, SMS, Telephone, Door, Street, DRTV, Outdoor, and digital channels including Search, Social and Display.
As Direct Marketing Manager in the retention team, you will help to drive strategic development of one area of our retention programme – focusing on our direct debit or mobile regular giving products, or our cash programme. You will be a pivotal member of the team, supporting your direct reports in delivering campaigns, while working alongside the management team to shape and develop your strategy. 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 marketing campaign management is essential, but you’ll also understand how to develop direct marketing strategy. You’ll be adept at developing complex testing programmes and possess excellent communication skills that help you build strong relationships with colleagues, agencies and suppliers. You must also be skilled at managing multiple projects at the same time while maintaining a high level of drive and commitment.
