The role: Email Campaigns Lead

Reports to: Campaigns Director

Salary: £32,000 to £35,000 (inc. London Weighting if applicable – £2,556 for Inner London, £1,869 for Outer London) dependent on experience

Benefits: Pension, 25 days annual leave

Based in: London office. (We are happy to consider remote working within the UK, with regular in-person meetings in London, for the right candidate.)

What you’ll be doing in this role

Using our email list, and our instance of the Engaging Networks tools, you will:

  • Run campaigns that advocate for our causes, involve our supporters, and grow our list
  • Promote the output of the organisation to our list so supporters are informed, motivated and armed with the information they need to be active in support of our work
  • Grow our membership and fundraise so that our work is always sustainable into the long-term
  • Mobilise our supporters offline, crowdbuild for events, and support the work of our organisers

This member of the team will additionally be responsible for the management of our website, which is in the process of an exciting redevelopment. You will ensure the site is kept up to date, liaising with colleagues across the organisation who draft content. You will manage the relationship with our agency to ensure that our website strategy is successfully implemented.

We expect applicants to show a range of experiences:

  • Experience of – and passion for – running email programmes, whether electoral, advocacy, charitable or corporate. If you know how to use email tools to hit campaign goals, we want to hear from you;
  • Experience with online tools, ideally the tools we use, Engaging Networks, but if you have experience with tools such as BSD, EveryAction, or NationBuilder it is a good sign you’re right for this job;
  • Passion for using data to guide email programmes, from improving the user experience through to list segmentation;
  • Some experience  in managing website content, including an understanding of audience development and using data to improve user experience, through to copyediting and site management;
  • Understanding of, and comfort with, handling data – from knowing the requirements of GDPR rules, to managing the internal sharing of data to assist other teams;
  • Experience of managing, editing and contributing to an organisation’s website presence, with good knowledge of WordPress or a similar CMS, and some experience of CSS and HTML. 

If you don’t have all of these experiences, we’d encourage you to apply anyway – we want to find someone passionate about email, digital mobilisation, and using data to inform decision-making, with a strong aptitude for learning. Having the basics is important, but some of this experience can be gained on the job.

How to apply

We believe that our work will be at its best if it is created by people with a range of backgrounds and experiences. We are keen to interview people who will add diversity to our team. We are an antifascist organisation, which strives to be an effective ally in the wider fight against racism and inequity.
