The NSPCC is recruiting for 2 x Senior Policy and Public Affairs Officer, and 1 x Senior Policy Officer (Child Safety Online).
In both roles, the post holder will be responsible for undertaking policy work to achieve the NSPCC’s strategic goals, using their skills and experience to strengthen the NSPCC’s impact on public policy, and in doing so make a significant contribution to keeping children safe.
The Senior Policy and Public Affairs Officer(s) will lead the development and advancement of new policy positions on priority issues, such as the future of the child protection system, ensuring access to mental health support for children who have been abused and neglected, and improving the experiences of young victims within the criminal justice system. The Senior Policy Officer (Child Safety Online) will lead the development and advancement of new policy positions on Child Safety Online.
In doing so, the post holder(s) will bring/develop subject-specific knowledge and insight to deepen the organisation’s pool of expertise. They will build persuasive, evidence-based policy positions into campaigning activity as appropriate, and play a key role in public affairs and influencing activity with a range of external stakeholders, including in government, industry, parliament, public services and civil society. They will therefore help to ensure that the NSPCC’s policy recommendations deliver real change and reform in the best interests of children.
A single set of interviews and shortlisting will take place. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a single application covering both roles (indicating a preference between roles where one exists).
