Brilliant Account Director wanted!


We’re looking for a brilliant Account Director!


We are a social change agency helping good causes connect with people to do good things, including giving money, campaigning, volunteering and changing their behaviour. We partner with our clients in fundraising, campaigning, communications, data, consultancy and research across all media channels.  We are leaders in direct marketing fundraising from individuals – we get the best results you are likely to find anywhere.

We are a busy and growing agency, and are seeking a talented and experienced Account Director to manage some of our client accounts. You will need to take full responsibility for managing the development of fundraising appeals and other communications for specific ChangeStar clients – from campaign planning to review. You will also help clients build, review and improve their strategies.  Overall, you will be responsible for driving our clients and our work forward with real energy and commitment.  This is pivotal role that has real potential for further growth and broader responsibility for the right person.

It means a lot to our clients to work with people of Account Director level who are ‘do-ers’ – who will manage their campaigns every step of the way, rather than delegating to Account Managers or Executives, and we want to continue this tradition with this role.

So, you’ll need to have at least 5 years experience of managing direct response fundraising campaigns – with at least some of this working in an agency environment. You’ll be comfortable managing both recruitment and donor development campaigns across all major media (including cold, inserts, press, telephone, DRTV and digital).

You’ll also need to have a demonstrable passion for the issues that we work with – including progressive politics, the environment and social justice, as well as a genuine interest in keeping up to date with the latest fundraising knowledge and trends. We’d also like to work with someone who is professional, very well organised, with an eye for detail and ability to get things done, but who is also calm, relaxed and friendly.

Finally, you will be energetic, ambitious and proactive, willing to invest time and care in every project and client relationship to ensure that they are really driven forward proactively and that our work is of the highest quality. This is a really exciting time to be joining ChangeStar – we’ve got some great clients, exciting plans and are developing our business into something unusual and special. So, get in touch if you’d like to be part of it!

Initially this role will be part time at 3-4 days per week although it has the potential to develop into a full time role over time. Salary is circa £30,000 to £40,000 pro rata, dependent on experience.

The role will be based at our offices in Lewes, East Sussex, just 1 hour direct on the train from London and 15 minutes from Brighton.
