Children Change Colombia is the UK’s largest charity working exclusively in Colombia. We work with children whose rights to a safe, happy childhood, and a fulfilling future, are threatened by poverty, inequality and violence. We believe that, with a knowledge of their rights and the confidence to assert them, children can transform their own lives, their communities and Colombia itself.
As Communications and Events Coordinator you will help to maintain our relationships with our supporter community, in the UK and beyond, and help to engage new supporters, both online and face-to-face. You will be responsible for designing and implementing direct marketing campaigns with new and existing supporters. You will also plan and manage two to three fundraising events per year. The role also involves some general administration associated with fundraising.
You will be the first contact point for enquiries and will be responsible for managing the administration behind our fundraising and our finances, including managing our database of contacts. You will also provide support with updating our website and social media, and coordinating production of our newsletter and appeals. You will have the energy and passion to manage this wide-ranging role and be a crucial part of our small team.
You are the right person for this position if you are highly organised, independent, and innovative. You are outgoing, like new challenges and working in a team. You are also passionate about children’s rights and sustainable development, and you want to use all these qualities and skills to defend the rights of the most at risk children in Colombia.
