Would you like to drive forward NSPCC's schools offer?    

In 2021, the NSPCC announced a new 10+ year strategy to make the biggest impact we can to stop child abuse and neglect. Our Local Services teams are an essential part of how NSPCC's three main strategic goals will be delivered:  

  • Everyone plays their part to prevent child abuse.  
  • Every child is safe online.  
  • Children feel safe, listened to and supported.  

Local Services brings together our work in schools, local campaigning, income generation and our direct services across 9 regions and nations. The Schools Service plays an integral part of our mission as it's responsible for delivering the wider schools offer.   

Reporting to the Schools Manager, the Schools Coordinator will mainly be responsible for delivering the NSPCC and Schools Service offer to primary and secondary school settings. This includes (not not an exhaustive list);

  • being the single point contact for primary and secondary schools within the designated local educational authority areas, including non-mainstream settings; 
  • working to set targets, KPIs and reach plans as agreed by your Schools Manager; 
  • responsibility for booking a minimum number of schools to deliver our school-led Speak out Stay safe assemblies;
  • overseeing the booking and delivery of NSPCC volunteer led workshops (to 6-7 and 9-11 year olds);
  • actively engaging with and approaching secondary schools with our new RSE resources/frameworks and training;
  • leading, supervising and supporting a team of  high calibre Schools Service volunteers; 
  • carrying out quality assurance visits through direct observations of volunteer deliveries, giving constructive feedback;
  • ensuring training and sign off plans are in place for new volunteers, which may include some co-delivery with a Schools Coordinator in schools for some areas;
  • providing effective individual and group volunteer supervisions;
  • planning and implementing volunteer recruitment/attraction strategies;
  • building and maintaining internal and external relationships, attending events or actively stewarding our offer with stakeholders;
  • following NSPCC Schools Service safeguarding procedures to the required standards;
  • collaboration with internal colleagues across the organisation in region;  
  • being an active contributor to priority projects;
  • commitment to continued professional development and practice sharing.

Do you have experience;

  • delivering or arranging programmes and services in either educational or safeguarding/equivalent settings? 
  • working towards and meeting targets, key performance indicators and objectives? 
  • following safeguarding procedures, working in a child centred approach and understanding children's rights?
  • in all aspects of volunteer recruitment, management, development and retention of volunteers?
  • communicating effectively with a range of audiences, influencing key stakeholders?
  • using IT systems and software?
  • managing time effectively with excellent planning and organisation skills?
  • understanding and committing to equality, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life and practice? 
  • working well independently and as a team? 

If so, we would love you to apply for the Schools Coordinator position.  As a member of our team, our organisational values and behaviours would also be important to you.
