Direct Marketing Executive

Job description

£35,148 to £40,404 per annum

(We normally offer a starting salary at the start of the range)

Full-time (37.5h) / 6 month Fixed Term Contract

Based in Islington, London

Greenpeace is an international non-profit global campaigning organisation. Our independence and global reach enable us to stand for positive change through action in order to defend nature and promote peace. We investigate and expose global environmental problems, confront those in positions of power and present alternative solutions.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to build on your project management, direct marketing and relationship-building experience and natural storytelling skills to deliver us effective and impactful telemarketing campaigns.

As for Greenpeace UK, you will make significant contributions to Greenpeace’s supporter recruitment programme by managing a diverse range of telemarketing campaigns to acquire new regular giving donations.

As our Direct Marketing Executive, you will oversee a variety of complex telemarketing campaigns from start to finish, including writing briefs, developing scripts, selecting contact data, performance management and fulfilment. We will also count on you to actively enhance, develop and manage relationships with external agencies and telemarketing partners, as well as undertake both daily and ongoing monitoring of campaign performance and results to ensure they meet or exceed their individual targets and to plan future strategy.

The role is based in our London office. As we progress to a hybrid working model, you may have flexibility to work from home, but you will need to commute into our Islington head office on a regular basis.


You'll have:

  • An understanding of the principles of direct marketing and fundraising
  • Experience of monitoring and reporting on direct or digital marketing campaign performance against KPIs
  • Experience of managing external partner agencies and building strong professional relationships with third-party providers
  • Project management experience, planning and delivering on direct or digital marketing campaigns
  • Outstanding communication skills, both verbal and written, with the ability to simplify complicated campaign stories
  • Excellent interpersonal, organisational and prioritisation skills.

We give you: 

You’ll be encouraged to develop both personally and professionally, taking advantage of the wide range of learning and development opportunities available to our staff. We offer great benefits such as a generous pension scheme, subsidised lunches, free yoga and a wealth of well-being resources, just to name a few.
