Job Title: Marketing & Business Development Executive

Hours and Location: Full Time Monday to Friday. 9.00am to 5.30pm. Home based with travel to central London as required,

If you are looking for a marketing and fundraising role where you can use your expertise to help to create significant positive changes in the world then this could be the role for you.
Ethical Goods is a consultancy with social purpose at its heart. We offer a range of services to help organisations develop innovative ideas that aim to change the world and we provide the people that can make these exciting initiatives happen. We help to find the funding and innovation for charities, social or planet focused enterprises. We also help organisations to get ready for philanthropic or commercial investment by investing our own team and funds to create world changing opportunities for people, planet and profit.
An example of one of our past innovations is VaccinAid in which we aimed to ‘Give the World a Shot’ by building a campaign around the concept of "vaccine gratitude" during the pandemic. We took our idea to one of our clients Crowdfunder and to a number of iNGOs as a potential partner. The world's largest vaccine delivery organisation, UNICEF jumped at the chance to be involved. This idea facilitated other partnerships including match funding from the Gates Foundation and growth from UNICEF UK to other parts of the UNICEF family. The creative agency Mother helped deliver an integrated creative campaign ensuring the appeal was visible in vaccine clinics across the UK, resulting in raising well over £10m. So if you like the idea of helping to create change on this scale, read on…
The Marketing and Fundraising Executive role will support across a wide variety of projects and activities. A fundamental part of the role will be to help with the marketing and communications of Ethical Goods, to generate awareness of our work and attract new business. The other part of the role will be working with our diverse client base on their own marketing, fundraising and partnerships activity.
This is an exciting first or second role for a person with some experience in marketing, communications, fundraising and / or account management, in either a voluntary or employee capacity. We are a small but dynamic team so you will be expected to get stuck in from day one, but you will also be given the opportunity to learn and develop your professional and personal skills, as well as be exposed to the huge network of remarkable people that we work with.
As the role is predominantly homebased you will need to be self-motivated and comfortable with conferencing technology such as Google Meet and Zoom for taking part in daily video meetings.
Travel to our shared workspace in London on a weekly basis is encouraged.
What is Impact Investing?
Impact Investing focusses on the positive outcome (or impact) of an organisation’s work on the planet and its people to return a triple bottom line return (people, planet, profit.)
We’ve been at the forefront of impact investing for 20 years both internationally and in the UK. With a background in economic development in frontier nations, our team have been at the forefront of investor and investee side transactions.
We’ve supported raises including a £30m fund for ethical investing in African agriculture, a global fund for supporting refugee entrepreneurs and guiding multiple iNGOs to an enterprise led development strategy.
We’re a key advisor to SEAF, the world’s longest established ethical investor, currently leading the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world.
Our team knows how to find impact investment funding, and enable enterprises to be impact investment ready.
And we have our own fund to invest in impact businesses or social enterprises who need catalytic capital.
