“In the Chief Executive's Office, we are committed to effective governance with a passion to drive a strong safeguarding culture throughout our organisation, where keeping children safe is at the heart of everything we do. I love being part of such an inspirational group of people, where what we do, and how we do it is of equal importance. This gives me the spirit to champion making a positive difference – join us, and together we can make the changes needed for ALL our children.”
You’ll make sure we do all the right things, to deliver our vision, mission and strategy. Join us on our inspirational journey, and you’ll be helping our partners and our people create a place for positive change. You’ll be part of a supportive and nurturing network you’ll learn from every day. And in return for your effort and enthusiasm, we offer a great range of benefits and the flexibility to suit your lifestyle. Due to the nature of our work, we strongly emphasise the importance of providing children with the best start in life. And we want to do the best for our people to support their own children and families in this too.
Put simply, we keep the NSPCC in check. We have most of our people based in teams across London and Leicester, but with some roles available across other UK locations - and some where you’ll need to travel. They help shape who we are as an organisation, and how we go about doing our important work – ensuring we never lose sight of why we do it; always putting children and young people first.
We employ around 25 people.
This refers to qualities that help you communicate with and work well with others, including listening actively, understanding the needs of others, managing your emotions and interpreting non-verbal communication such as body language.
Having initiative means that you can take action independently without having to be told what to do. A person that shows initiative has the confidence to be the first person to respond to a potential opportunity or crisis rather than relying on others to assume responsibility.
Attention to detail refers to your ability to complete tasks accurately and thoroughly for all areas involved. Being detail-oriented is an important quality as it suggests that you are attentive, efficient and productive.
Teamwork skills have to do with your ability to work with others in a team. This includes how you handle tasks such as collaboration, resolving group conflicts and sharing responsibilities. Working harmoniously in a team environment is an essential skill as almost every job involves working with other people to achieve common goals and objectives.
Working under pressure means that you can remain calm and carry out your tasks efficiently during high-pressure situations. For instance, when expectations change or things don't go according to plan. In many types of roles, you may experience demanding situations at work where you have to make quick decisions and remain focused while carrying out your tasks to a high standard.
We usually have a wide range of opportunities and we’re always on the lookout for great talent! Please join our talent pool so we can keep you updated on what is happening at NSPCC and let you know about any future roles that come up.
