Are you ready for the next chapter in your insight career? And want to use your research and storytelling skills for good to help us give young people the childhood they deserve? Then this exciting new role at the Children’s Society might be for you.
The Children’s Society (TCS) has been helping children and young people in this country for over 130 years. After a tumultuous time through Covid, we’ve emerged with a sharp vision and ambition for children and young people. We’re throwing all we have at overturning the damaging decline in children’s wellbeing by 2030. We plan to set a path for lasting growth in wellbeing for young people. We focus on children who are abused, exploited, or neglected, and we fight for the hope in every child. We’ve got the battle of a lifetime ahead.
To ensure we can meet our 2030 goal, we need to ensure we are future proofing ourselves, by attracting new audiences and engaging existing ones in new and innovative ways. This is where you come in. Your role will help us to ensure we put audiences at the heart of everything we do.
As an Audience Insight Manager, you will use your knowledge of the Children’s Society’s target audiences, the market and our brand to inform effective decision-making on our campaigns and activities. You will help to build strategic recommendations on how best to attract, reach and grow our supporter audiences. You will become our internal audience guru and insight partner for colleagues across the social impact domain. You’ll oversee our audience testing and will be responsible for managing and delivering qualitative and quantitative research projects liaising with external agencies as well as internal stakeholders.
With previous experience in an insight, strategy or research role, you will be an expert at interrogating qualitative and quantitative information; able to spot the most useful points and build a persuasive strategy. Working within a newly formed team, you must be go-getting and proactive, with strong communication and problem-solving skills.
This role sits within our Social Impact Domain and reports into the Head of Supporter Insight. Our focus is on elevating young people's voices; challenging public perceptions of the challenges young people face; and attracting, retaining, and mobilising support through voice, time, and money.
