We have just picked up an extremely rare opportunity to join London’s standout specialist charity agency at Junior Account Director or Account Director level.

The agency will consider ADs, JADs and Senior Account Managers looking to step up to JAD level.

Experience of working on charity / fundraising accounts is essential for the role and you can have either an agency OR client-side background.

So, if you are experienced in charity marketing on the client side and fancy a switch to the agency world this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Direct marketing experience is preferred and may give you an advantage but only experience of the fundraising sector is mandatory.

The role also offers you the chance to be a big cog in a close-knit organisation with bags of opportunity to grow.

The agency

This full-service fundraising agency only works with charity and not-for-profit clients. They enjoy the challenge of encouraging people to give and making them feel special when they do.

The agency specialises in direct marketing. In fact, around 80% of the its campaigns are direct mail; they also create some DRTV, press ads and inserts and the remainder is digital.

The agency’s approach comes from a deep understanding of donor needs, backed by over 25 years of experience. They conduct research, analyse data, devise strategies, find solutions and deliver brilliant creative ideas. 


You have a passion for working with charities.

You are well versed on the agency side, managing some charity clients at either Senior Account Manager, Junior Account Director or Account Director level.

Or, you may already be in a senior role within a fundraising team at a charity – for example, heading up the fundraising team as Head of Fundraising / Head of Individual Giving.

The Junior Account Director / Account Director role

You won’t be afraid to get stuck in as everyone, no matter their level, is hands-on at this agency, managing a number of DM projects simultaneously. So, you’ll need to be organised and have a keen eye for detail. You thrive on teamwork and identifying areas of growth across your client base.

You also enjoy working on inspiring strategic and creative campaigns and you are at your best playing a large part in a smaller, close-knit organisation. You won’t be fazed by statistics or data and you can work within budgets and hit deadlines.

You will also manage at least one SAM in a team that comprises a CSD, Senior AD, AD, SAMs and AMs.

Experience & skills required

  • A passion for the charitable sector
  • Great at building strong relationships with clients and colleagues
  • Confident face-to-face presentation skills
  • Ability to identify and secure new business
  • Inspiring leadership
  • Written and numerical accuracy
  • Able to manage budgets
  • Able to write briefs
  • Excellent attention to detail

Salary & benefits

You’ll receive a competitive salary (between £45k and £60k); a great work / life balance, regular social events, your birthday off, agency closure over the Christmas period and, most importantly, being part of a caring culture – you’ll get to work with some wonderful, inspiring and friendly people.

This is an incredibly rare Account Director role at a great boutique charity specialist agency. Agency or client-side candidates with solid charity and ideally direct marketing experience, please send us your CV today.

To be considered for this role, candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK.

Whilst every effort is made to contact everyone who applies, we are unable to give individual feedback to those who are unsuccessful.
