Jobs at TrueSense Marketing

Account Coordinator

Location: Warrendale, PA

Department: True Sense Marketing

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

As a TrueSense Account Coordinator, you will manage execution of all aspects of the annual direct response fundraising plans for your clients, focused heavily in direct mail and online channels (and sometimes broadcast and print). You will move approved donor marketing projects from strategy through execution- coordinating the information, schedules and creative elements that all must come together.  Your work is a large part project management, quality assurance, customer service…and all detail-oriented.

You own the agreed-upon plan, the schedules and the deliverables. At the same time, you are chief service provider for both our internal teams and the clients, and communicate with them often – so we’ll count on both your relational and organizational skills.

Our Account Coordinators expertly navigate campaigns through creative development, donor segmentation strategies, testing parameters, data management, client approvals, billing and performance reporting. And they work at all times to support and engage the client through frequent communication. Our clients are located across the country, and you’ll periodically visit your clients for planning and review along with an Account Director – bringing you close to the charity’s mission and reminding you of the important service our fundraising helps them provide.
