The NSPCC exists to prevent cruelty to children. We are seeking to recruit an exceptional Policy and Public Affairs Assistant (Northern Ireland and Wales) to support the work of the Policy and Public Affairs team in delivering real change and reform in the best interests of children to ensure children in the UK can grow up free from abuse.
At a crucial time for children, the successful candidate will work across the Policy and Public Affairs teams in Wales and Northern Ireland and be responsible for undertaking policy work to achieve the NSPCC’s strategic goals and make a significant contribution to keeping children safe.
You’ll be a strong supporter of the NSPCC’s mission and values and be passionate about preventing abuse. You will have strong organisational, IT and administrative skills and an interest in the policy and political environments of the Welsh Senedd and/or NI Assembly. You will have experience in collecting, analysing and presenting data and findings clearly together with strong written skills with experience in making persuasive, credible arguments.
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 means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.
The role is likely to be initially home based due to COVID but it will be based in either the Cardiff or Belfast office.
