Full Description


The Irish Cancer Society is the national cancer charity in Ireland dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by cancer. They combine relentless passion with the wisdom of over 50 years’ of experience to make this vision a reality.

The Irish Cancer Society save lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and fighting back. This is achieved by funding life-changing, collaborative cancer research, providing up to date information about cancer, delivering a range of services to improve the lives of people living with cancer and their families, and by influencing change and raising awareness of cancer issues at the government level.


The Direct Marketing Officer will assist in the development and delivery of Regular Giving, Direct Marketing, Tax and Legacy Giving campaigns with the aim of increasing income and developing long-term committed relationships with donors to meet revenue goals.

• Provide support on all direct marketing campaigns for fundraising. • Plan, execute and analyse performance of donor segments against targets for response, engagement, acquisition, retention, donation amount and life-time-value. • Provide frequent updates, insights and recommendations as you track campaign performance. • Work with the Donor Development Manager in review of results and planning for the year. • Induct, train, and manage the delivery of activities of temporary and volunteer staff. • Monitor competitors and market performance, identifying new initiatives and building business cases for test and learn pilot programmes.

The role is ideally suited to someone who has the equivalent of 3-5 years’ experience of managing campaigns across multiple channels, from end to end, on time and on budget. The successful candidate will have an understanding of how to effectively use database for direct marketing purposes. Experience with a CRM that is similar to Dynamics or Salesforce would be valued.

If you have a positive attitude, a willingness to learn new things, work well with others and want to build on your track record with a talented and successful team, we’d love to hear from you! HOW TO APPLY:
