BBC Children in Need are currently looking for a Campaign Assistant to support the Marketing and Fundraising team during the busy Appeal period. This is a four month fixed-term contract based in Salford.
The team sits at the heart of BBC Children in Need's external and internal communications network, supporting work across a range of campaigns and communications initiatives, but primarily ensuring the success of the annual Appeal. The team works across a range of disciplines to manage relationships and messages with various target audiences.
BBC Children in Need exists to make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. This role supports our mission by ensuring our fundraisers feel valued and supported.
As a Campaign Assistant, you will support the Marketing Campaign Manager in the run up to, and during, this year's Children in Need appeal in November and help with administrative duties as required.
You will facilitate the tracking, sharing and flow of the charity's fundraising and campaign content to maximise and monitor reach across partners and teams. Importantly, you will support artwork and creative briefings to create tools and resources for fundraisers.
The Campaign Assistant will also support the maintenance and development of a network of contacts to maximise channel plans while coordinating and tracking assets to ensure the campaign runs on time and plans are delivered in full.
Are you the right candidate?
The Children in Need Campaign Assistant must have brilliant organisational skills coupled with exceptional people skills - you will have a natural flare for getting the best out of your colleagues.
Ideally, you will have a good understanding of key marketing channels and roles (TV, Email, Social, Web) but must also have proven administration skills and be proficient with Microsoft Word and Excel.
This position would be ideal for someone with around one year's marketing experience looking for a great opportunity to develop your skills within the UK's leading children's charity.
