The WOW Foundation was established in May 2018 to run the activities of WOW - Women of the World. WOW is dedicated to building, convening and sustaining a movement of people of all genders who believe a gender equal world is both desirable and possible.
The WOW Foundation produces festivals, events and programmes independently and in partnership - they are catalysts for change, celebrating what women, girls and non-binary people have achieved, having frank conversations about the obstacles that still exist and creating solutions together.
As a team we are about to embark upon a six month Equality and Diversity training course, the newly appointed Development and Marketing Assistant role will be expected to participate.
This is a brand-new position providing support to the busy Development, Marketing and Communications team. The successful candidate will work closely with WOW’s Head of Communications & Marketing and the Development Manager to grow WOW’s community of supporters, help build its social channels and audiences, provide administrative support and work across WOW’s busy calendar of events.
The candidate will play a crucial role in building the profile and support for WOW’s global movement. The role will support the delivery of WOW’s charitable aims and objectives in line with the fundraising strategy and audience engagement plan, to better understand WOW’s supporters and build relationships to cultivate different levels of support.
This varied role is an exciting opportunity for candidates interested in working across a broad range of fundraising and marketing tasks, and would suit a highly organised person with excellent writing skills. This role will include everything from researching the latest news and initiatives tackling gender inequality across the globe, communicating WOW’s impact to prospect funders, overseeing guest lists of high-profile events, and writing engaging social content.
The ideal candidate will have a sound understanding of WOW’s core mission and be able to clearly communicate to a wide range of audiences from newsletter followers to prospective major individual donors.
