Senior Policy and Public Affairs Officer

Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us. And it motivates our Policy and Public Affairs team to drive our position as influential, informed and powerful voice for change.  Join us as a Senior Policy and Public Affairs Officer and lead progress that really matters. 

 At a crucial time for children, we’re looking for two first-class public affairs and policy specialists that can help deliver our mission to prevent cruelty to children. You’ll lead work on at least one of our policy priorities including: perinatal and infant mental health support for 0-2 year oldschild protection and the social care systemdomestic abuse and the family justice system.   

 We’re looking for skilled communicators, with an excellent understanding of the policy and parliamentary process. You’ll have an exceptional understanding of how to build support for legislative and public policy change in Westminster, Whitehall and beyond, and make persuasive, credible policy arguments that cement the NSPCC’s impact and strategic goals. 

You’ll join a high performing team to develop impactful policy calls and public affairs strategies, and ensure they gain real traction. To help us make a compelling case for change, you’ll be confident in building strong networks, have a grasp of often complex subject matter, and have experience working on relevant policy issues. 

This is a real opportunity to make a difference to children’s lives, but we also like to reward our people by offering a great working environment, being part of a friendly and supportive team, and offering stimulating and challenging work, with plenty of development opportunities.  We offer a variety of rewards and benefits including: generous annual leave, employee benefits and assistance programme, pension and life assurance schemes. 

Join us and you’ll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You’ll discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that’ll bring the best out in you. And you’ll get to find your own way to make a difference that matters, and that impacts millions of young lives.
