The Leprosy Mission Trading (TLMT) is seeking a Digital Marketing Assistant.

As a member of The Leprosy Mission Trading team, you will be working with fun and lively people who celebrate achievements and support each other. Alongside a demanding workload, we’re part of something amazing, changing people’s lives, and there is nothing more rewarding than that!

The Leprosy Mission (TLM) International is a leading international Christian development organisation with over 140 years’ experience and is part of the TLM worldwide family. TLM serves the poorest of the poor raising funds to provide life-changing healthcare, education, training, housing, clean water and job opportunities for people who have only ever known suffering and rejection.

TLMT is 100% owned by The Leprosy Mission International. It exists as a marketing tool for The Leprosy Mission – to raise funds and awareness for the charity by selling a range of products through its mail order and growing online ordering operation. TLMT’s objectives include raising awareness of The Leprosy Mission and its work by transacting with supporters, selling branded TLM items and introducing new people to TLM and its work.

It raises funds through its profits, as well as selling ‘Gifts for Life’ and donations added to orders, while selling products made by people affected by leprosy. Our artisan product range supports people affected by leprosy socially and economically, helping them lead a dignified life, whilst demonstrating one area of rehabilitation work TLM is involved with.

Working alongside the Digital Marketing & CRM Manager, you will have experience in designing and running successful digital marketing campaigns (email and/or social media). In addition to proven creativity, you will have experience of working with Mailchimp, Campaign Monitor or similar platforms. Relevant voluntary experience is equally valuable i.e. successful publicity and marketing for a student society or charity. This role will provide the job holder with insight to the whole business including sourcing products from resource-poor countries to managing third party suppliers.

TLMT has a zero-tolerance policy towards any abuse, neglect and exploitation of all people. Successful candidates are expected to understand, sign and comply with all organisational policies, including the Global Code of Conduct and the Global Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults Policy. Recruitment to roles within TLM Trading includes, in particular, criminal record checks and the collection of relevant references. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from joining us as an employee this will depend on the circumstances of any offences. The role is based at our offices in Peterborough but we are happy to discuss the possibility of the role being home-based.

TLM is an explicitly Christian charity, and therefore empathy with our Christian ethos is essential. In addition, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a work health assessment questionnaire.
