Digital Marketing Officer, Fundraising

Salary: Circa £25,000 per annum

Start Date: As soon as possible thereafter

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK

Digital fundraising is transforming the way charities fundraise and connect with their supporters. More and more people are donating online, more platforms are available from whence to give and the methods for reaching people in the online space are constantly evolving; but most of all it’s now becoming the only way many people choose to support charities.

FFI is experiencing rapid exponential growth in the number of online supporters, online donations and opportunities to fundraise digitally. Over the last three years the increase in online income has been unprecedented. This has been managed and maintained via a small fundraising team, and to take this to the next level, we need to grow the digital marketing team.

This new role of Digital Marketing Officer will take us to that next level.  You will be instrumental in realising the true potential of FFI’s supporter marketing programme and, working with the Digital Marketing Executive, will grow digital fundraising so it becomes one of the largest sources of unrestricted income.

You will have an understanding of digital marketing, knowledge of effective social media techniques and web design and development.  You will have experience with email broadcast software and/or CRM databases, and with either Google Analytics or Google & Facebook Adverts. Experience with CSS & HTML and experience with online lead generation platforms, such as Care2 would be an advantage.

Your excellent written communication skills will enable you to produce compelling direct response copy and your excellent interpersonal skills will ensure you build effective relationships with key stakeholders. You will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment with the ability to respond to competing demands and you will have a keen desire and ability to learn new systems and acquire new skills.

You will either have previous experience as a digital marketer or have relevant qualifications and transferable skills and experience. In return, the role offers an opportunity to learn and to develop your career in an exciting and rewarding environment. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
