Working in the Services team The application process

As an organisation, we are committed to creating and fostering a culture that promotes safeguarding and the welfare of all children and adults at risk. Our safer recruitment practices support this by ensuring that there is a consistent and thorough process of obtaining, collating, analysing and evaluating information from and about candidates to ensure that all persons appointed are suitable to work with our children and adults.


The most interesting reason for working with the
NSPCC is that the NSPCC highly embraces,
and promotes diversity and
inclusiveness of staff.
