In House Digital Marketing Manager for charity!
I am very excited to advertise this position that I am hoping will have the same effect on you once you have read the full details!
My client is a brand new charity – though they don’t see themselves as a ‘normal’ charity, upon meeting them, I believe they might be right! They are two brothers that have been running this charity in the US and now bringing to the UK through their thoroughly well connected contacts! Launching in April online, the campaign will be to highlight the need and awareness to check a certain area of the body for cancer! The target audience is 15-35 year olds, and it’s all done through good old fashioned humour and comedy!
The campaign has of course an extremely important message behind it, but done with some fun and humour, in addition it has some extremely high profile people involved to help make it a huge success that I have no doubt it will be. The online campaign is being launched late April, with CH4 commissioning it for a show in October this year. The show will have a target to drive awareness as much as possible online, which will determine which global artists will be playing at a huge concert. The depth and breadth of this campaign throughout the year is brilliant, they have a London based social agency on board to do pro-bono work with them and also a tier 1 PR agency. The campaign is about raising awareness not £!
This Digital Marketing Manager is needed to help keep the varying agencies and people on the same pages, to ensure the delivery of the digital campaigns throughout the year are on time, delivered as they should be, and on brand! The main skills needed for this role are project management and digital marketing experience to understand the different platforms the content can and should be used with. This role is a pivotal hire to the business, you will sit 50% in the pro-bono’s agencies offices and 50% in the HQ of the charity. This digital marketing role is initially budgeted for 2 days a week only, possibly 3, but with a view to go full time when a brand partner is secured. This will happen, not if, when. So, it would suit someone that wants security of a 2 or 3 day week position, who maybe has their own clients in addition to these, or someone that is looking to reduce their permanent hours currently to 2 or 3 days a week – but open to increasing these when needed.
This is such an exciting opportunity for the right person, it deserves enthusiasm and energy and passion. Personality and a good sense of humour a must, with strong skills of project management and gravitas to manage different teams simultaneously. This role could fit a freelancer in the interim, though you would need to commit to a 6 month contract.
