Any one of our people will tell you that a huge reward in itself is making a difference to children’s lives. But we know it’s a competitive world, and it’s important to feel valued in your role and receive more practical, tangible benefits. We offer salaries that are at least comparable with the top charities in the UK, as well as these benefits.
Generous annual leave
We strive to achieve a happy and healthy work-life balance for all our people: 29 days per annum plus bank holidays for full-time employees (pro-rata for part-time). 32 days per annum after five years’ continuous service.
Our discounts portal gives you online access to over 3,000 discounts and offers on everyday goods and services.
The Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
EAP is an independent, free, personal support service. It is available to all NSPCC employees, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can provide information, support and advice to support your health and wellbeing.
We know how important planning for the future is. Building up a good pension is something we want to help you achieve with our flexible, tax-efficient pension schemes.
Life assurance scheme
All employees will be given life assurance of one times their salary, unless they join the NSPCC Group Personal Pension Scheme, where members are given life assurance of five times their salary.
All NSPCC employees are entitled to allocate up to four working days per year, or half an hour each week, to volunteer for us. You can also request flexible working arrangements to support your volunteering with us, whether the volunteering falls within your contracted working hours or not.
We try to be as adaptable as possible in everything we do. We work actively to understand the needs of our people and meet these where we can, ensuring that those who need us continue to be supported. Our policies and practices support flexibility in where, when, and how you work, balancing your individual circumstances against our service delivery, business need and any potential impact on others.

“I joined during the pandemic and I worked from home, but I've always felt like a welcomed, valued member of the team from day one, whether that's working from home or in the office.”
Helpline Advisor (Services)
“There's a lot of support from our managers. There's always time to develop. There's always resources there as well.”
Programme Manager (People)
“For me, the NSPCC is a very family friendly organization. We have lots of policies here that support the work-life balance.”
