The Digital Campaigns Assistant will be a digital-savvy multi-tasker who will support the Digital and wider Brand team in promoting, enabling, and supporting the ambitions of the charity and its departments.

  • Support on project planning and project management around campaign work.
  • Maintain relevant files and documents, including accurate recording of supporter data.
  • Ensure all activities comply with Alzheimer’s Research UK’s communications and branding guidelines.

What we are looking for:

  • Educated to GCSE level or equivalent
  • Extensive understanding of social media, paid-for digital advertising, Google ads and analysis tools.
  • Excellent organisational skills; the ability to manage many tasks to multiple deadlines
  • High level of competence with analytical tools to monitor and report on social media performance.
  • Planning and deploying social media advertising campaigns.
  • Experience working in digital campaigning, digital fundraising and digital content creation.
