Job Details

At Barnardo’s, we believe in children. Our purpose is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and our vision is to realise Thomas Barnardo’s dream of a world where no child is turned away from the help that they need.

Barnardo’s Policy and Public Affairs Team aims to improve the lives of children through influencing public policy and practice. We use evidence-based research with our service users and policy analysis to campaign and lobby across Government and through the media. We are driven by a relentless determination to effect positive sustained change.

Bringing a sound understanding of current Westminster legislation and an understanding of the UK policy context on a range of issues impacting on the most vulnerable children, you’ll need proven experience of developing policy initiatives from evidence-based research. The ability to communicate your findings to a range of audiences is also important, together with strong report writing and team working skills.
