Our current vacancies

Creative Director [Permanent Contract]

We’re searching for a Creative Director to lead on the look, tone and feel of Pebblebeach’s direct mail appeals and campaigns, helping to raise vital funds for some wonderful causes. This is a new, senior role within our team; our ideal candidate will be imaginative and ambitious with proven accomplishments in their own specialty, particularly when it comes to writing copy. You’ll be able to build a team of inhouse and freelance creatives that aren’t afraid to innovate, while maintaining fantastic relationships with our charity partners.

Your work will provide the vision for our fundraising appeals, offering direction and a steady hand throughout each project. That’s why prior success in a similar role, or as a copywriter or designer looking to take that step up would be ideal. You’ll understand direct mail and fundraising creative – perhaps with an agency background; but a senior role within a charity, with experience of managing agencies, would also be valuable. You’ll be a willing team player, a flexible thinker and eager to play a pivotal role within Pebblebeach. Working alongside a fantastic team, you’ll get to know some of the UK and Ireland’s most amazing fundraising folk.

If this sounds like you, join us and put your imagination to great use – helping to drive change and deliver action for some truly inspirational charities.

Full time or Part Time (for the right candidate)
Location: In our Brighton office, with some flexibility for homeworking

Salary: £40,000 – £50,000

To apply to join Pebblebeach, please send your CV along with a covering letter detailing your experience and interest in our team to amy@pebblebeachfundraising.com.

Applications close at 5pm on Monday, 12 December 2022. Early applications are encouraged as interviews may be held in advance of the closing deadline.

What you can expect

  • The chance to work on inspirational charity campaigns, raising huge sums for awesome organisations
  • 25 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays (and a discretionary three days at Christmas)
  • Personalised training and development opportunities
  • A fun working atmosphere and lovely colleagues
  • Occasional POETS Fridays

We’re proud of our exceptional staff retention thanks to our work and play culture, alongside some quirky benefits. We work hard but enjoy delivering award-winning fundraising and seeing the impact it makes in the real world. We respect individuals and maintain an environment that is fun, flexible to personal needs, progressive and ambitious.

Charity Copywriters (Fundraising) [Freelance]

We would like to hear from freelance copywriters who have a proven track record of writing real, unpretentious and hard-working fundraising copy for charity appeals and campaigns. We’re looking for copywriters with experience in the non-profit sector – and ONLY those with Direct Marketing/Mail expertise. We are searching for people who will be as passionate about our clients’ causes as we are and who will put in the ‘extra’ necessary to deliver truly great work.

To express your interest, please get in contact and provide examples of your fundraising appeals copy.

Data and Insight Analyst [Permanent Contract]

As part of our ongoing expansion, we’re now looking for a skilful, passionate Data & Insight Analyst to become an integral part of the team – we don’t mind where you are in the country either! Our ideal candidate will be a self-professed data geek (and proud of it!), fascinated by what clever data insight can achieve and driven to utilise that knowledge to champion impact and, crucially, to raise money for some brilliant causes.

The Data & Insight Analyst will lead data processing, analytical and insight management across the organisation. We’re looking for someone who can help our charity clients increase their net income from fundraising campaigns through an audience-led and data-centric approach; making insightful interpretations of clients’ data and highly informed supporter selections will be a key part of the job.

The Data & Insight Analyst will also lead on agency-wide data product development and will take responsibility for data protection compliance.

The person we’re searching for will have industry experience in marketing, fundraising or the third sector (non-graduates encouraged to apply too!). We’re expecting previous experience in manipulating and processing complex data sources, analysing supporter/customer data and direct marketing. Our new colleague will also be a whizz when it comes to Microsoft Access, Excel and Power BI (and other equivalent software).

It would be a distinct advantage if you’ve previously worked with charities or in an individual giving capacity. The ability to enhance data insight through the creation of supporting visual and textual narratives would be hugely attractive. Having advanced knowledge or experience of data protection practices and management would also be desirable.

This is an opportunity for someone to come in afresh; to help create improved workflows, outputs and insights. There’s a real chance for the right person to make the role their own and shape the direction data plays in Pebblebeach’s future.

Full time
Remote with office opportunities for those local to Brighton
Salary: £26,000–£31,000 depending upon experience

To apply, please send your CV along with a one-page covering letter – addressed to our Account Director, Amy Holtz (opportunities@pebblebeachfundraising.com) – explaining why you’re the person we should want to join our team.
