Regional (European) Digital Hub Project Lead

The Opportunity

Save the Children International has an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as the Regional (European) Digital Hub Project Lead in Europe (Homebased/Remote) in any existing Save the Children International Regional or Country office worldwide for Fixed Term (12 months).

Role Purpose:

Save the Children is in the middle of an ambitious 2022-24 strategic plan that looks to build a Movement of Millions to achieve our programmatic and advocacy goals. To do so, it has been recognised that a shift in our marketing strategy is required and the adoption of an integrated marketing approach has been identified as a ‘game changer’ that will help us achieve this vision.

Both raising funds and engaging with our supporters through campaigning in digital channels are key to delivering the strategy.

This role sits in the Global Digital Engagement Team, which is part of the Engagement department, and provides strategic support and specialist guidance to our 27+ Members, most of them in Asia, Oceania, Europe and the Americas. The team are responsible for Member (National Office) support, Global Campaigns Digital Assets Development, Remote digital fundraising program and promoting Digital Innovation.

This is a unique opportunity for a senior digital marketer with strong fundraising, project management, international practitioners’ community building and team management skills to join our organization.

This role will primarily be responsible for leading a pilot project to develop a future European Digital Hub that supports our European members in digital Paid Media, CRO and Marketing Automation. The goal of this project is accelerating our participating members’ growth in these areas by increasing digital donor and income volumes, maintaining or decreasing CPAs and increasing donor retention rates.

During 2024 the role will be supported by a specialist external agency, although the longer-term vision for this project is to develop a regional digital in-house team. There are four members (national offices) participating in the pilot phase in 2024.

This role will also support in the analysis, business case development and incubation of potential additional Regional Digital Hubs in collaboration with our existing Regional Offices.

The post holder will drive effective business collaboration with key stakeholder groups such as other units in the Global Digital Engagement Team, Global Fundraising Hub, Global Content, Integrated Marketing, Brand and Communications units, as well as Members and Regional Offices.
