Forward Action

Summary Forward Action is looking for a Junior Digital Campaigner to join our fast-moving team. You will be the heart of our creative work, drafting copy and executing email and digital advertising campaigns to help our progressive clients hit their goals. If you’re passionate about making the world a better place and want to apply your writing skills to motivate people to act, this job is for you. This is a permanent role, with the freedom to work both in our London office and remotely from anywhere in the UK. You can work either four or five days per week. Applications close Friday 9 March. Who we are Forward Action is a full service digital agency for progressive causes. We work with clients from campaign conception through to results, creating strategies, content and tools to get the job done. Our clients are some of the most exciting and impactful organisations in campaigning, including Greenpeace, The Labour Party, Amnesty International, WaterAid, and SumOfUs. What you’ll do as part of our team

  • Draft copy for emails, Facebook ads, action pages, and the growth-focussed microsites Forward Action is well known for (like this one)
  • Build emails and set up Facebook adverts
  • Generate ideas for new tactics that help our clients hit their goals
  • Scan the news to spot opportunities for rapid-response tactics
  • Contribute to projects from conception through to build, and liaise with clients via email, Trello and video calls
  • Attend brainstorming and planning meetings with clients
  • Plan the layout and user experience of microsites and create wireframes

Benefits and location Salary: £21,700 if you live outside London (with an additional £3,000 per year expense allowance for travel into/accommodation in London for meetings), £24,304 if you live inside London. This is a permanent contract. Location: In our Hoxton London office, with the option to work remotely. Ensuring our team is open to people who live outside London and enabling staff to work flexibly are important values to us, so you’ll have the freedom to work from home regularly. Most of our meetings are done via video conferencing, but you will occasionally need to attend meetings with clients in London - once or twice a month, on average. This will be a full time role by default, although we’re happy to discuss four-day-per-week working as part of the interview process. Holiday: 25 days/year, plus bank holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year Why work at Forward Action? Our values are critical to us: we will only work with causes that make the world a better place. You will get to work with some of the most inspiring and impactful organisations in the sector, and spend your days helping win progress on everything from climate change to clean water. You will be working at the cutting edge of digital campaigning. We recognise that what we do can always be tested and improved, so we constantly pursue innovation. We are an agile, fast-moving team, and you will have the opportunity to rapidly develop and expand your skills and experience. We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to giving equal employment opportunities to everyone who applies for this role. Our team is open, inclusive, friendly, respectful and kind. Abilities and experience you’ll need to have

  • Great copywriting and communication skills
  • Enthusiasm for thinking creatively and coming up with new ideas
  • Being comfortable working in a fast-paced environment
  • Good organisation and attention to detail
  • Enthusiasm for using the internet to help build a fairer, more progressive world
  • Fluency in spoken and written English

Above all, we’re looking for a quick learner. We don’t expect you to know or have done everything when you start - instead, we’ll be looking for you to pick up new skills and knowledge quickly, then run with them. Abilities and experience that are nice to have We know it’s not possible for any applicants to have all these skills - it’s likely you’ll be able to bring two or three of the following to our team:

  • Experience working in the charity sector or at an agency
  • Drafting and building marketing emails, especially for fundraising and campaigning
  • Experience planning marketing email campaigns
  • Experience of working towards measurable goals as part of a team
  • Drafting content for social media
  • Drafting and setting up Facebook adverts
  • Basic HTML skills
  • Experience writing content for publication (e.g. on for a blog, website or email newsletter)
