“The NSPCC has thrived for more than a century through constant evolution and modernisation, and digital change can be a real enabler for increasing the reach and impact of the work we do. I am proud to be the NSPCC’s first Technology and Data director and, with our amazing Technology and Data colleagues, to be delivering our new strategy. Ensuring we’re putting children and safeguarding at the heart of digital change, while collaborating effectively and maintaining a spirit of constant improvement, is challenging and a great opportunity to make a real difference.”
This is an exciting time to be joining the NSPCC Technology and Data Directorate as we embark on a major digital transformation. You’ll be making an impact through technology and data - helping us deliver our strategy and mission, effectively and efficiently. Working with people who share our values, you’ll have access to all the resources and training you’ll need to learn and grow in your career - and receive a host of great benefits including flexible ways of working to suit your lifestyle and family commitments. We strongly believe in the importance of giving children the best start in life, so we want to support our people with this in their own families too.
As an organisation, we rely on the effective management and development of our technology platforms and products to get maximum value out of our information, to ensure our people work efficiently and for the benefit of children. We meet this challenge with best practice delivery and development standards, a focus on user experience, enterprise solutions, data and analytics, and honesty and commitment to our values and vision for children and young people.
We employ around 70 people across a number of teams:
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.
Having drive and determination indicates that you are goal-oriented and willing to invest a lot of effort into your work to accomplish your objectives and overcome challenges. Candidates who possess this quality tend to enjoy their jobs and contribute to a productive and positive environment by showing passion and dedication for their work.
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.
Problem-solving abilities allow you to identify problems and solve them efficiently and effectively. Being a good problem solver allows you to understand and analyse problems and develop creative and strategic solutions, even with limited resources available.
Being flexible refers to your ability to effectively adapt to change when needed. Flexibility is important because industries and roles are constantly changing due to factors such as new technology, competition, and changing customer expectations.
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.
