Marketing and PC Donations Officer Job Opportunity

Computer Aid International believes in a world where rich and poor have equal access to ICT – and to achieve this we aim to reduce poverty through practical ICT solutions and bridge the digital divide.

The Marketing and PC Donations Officer’s main responsibilities are to develop relationships with potential donors of computers and to implement marketing strategies which increase awareness of Computer Aid’s services so donations of computers, monitors and laptops to the charity are increased. As a key component to this role is promoting the benefits of reuse over recycling, you will need to be environmentally aware.

Part of this is managing our 9,000+ Twitter and Facebook accounts, and social media experience is essential. The post holder will also be responsible for managing Computer Aid’s cartridge and mobile phone recycling scheme.

We're a small charity - with 18 staff and 50 volunteers - so it would be better if you were willing, if needed, to turn your hand to most things. This also means there's room to display (measured) initiative, and launch some really worthwhile and interesting campaigns.

Please send your CV and a covering letter precisely matching your experience to the job spec.                         

The salary for the post will be up to £23,254 per annum plus a 3% contributory pension (after successful completion of probationary period).

Annual Leave will be 24 days (pro rata) plus Christmas office closure and statutory holidays.

The post will be located in Computer Aid’s head office in London.

Application is by CV  and a covering letter explaining why you are the right person for the job and clearly addressing each of the points of the Person Specification. 

Applications to be received by 10am 29th August 2014.

We are looking for someone who can start as soon as possible.

Please send CV and covering letter to Keith Sonnet
