Job Details

High Value Communications Officer (Fundraising) – Major Giving 

Abuse changes childhoods, but so could you. 

The NSPCC is fighting for every childhood, and we are looking for a driven and creative professional who can help us to inspire our supporters. 

Child abuse is preventable, and the need for NSPCC’s Childline, local services, and public campaigning has never been more urgent. Fundraising underpins our commitment to vulnerable children across the country - as a charity we rely upon our generous supporters for almost 90% of our annual income.  

The High Value Communications team ensures that our supporters feel close to the cause and makes the case for support of the NSPCC. As High Value Communications Officer, your work will further our ability to raise significant funds. You will be developing and sharing key fundraising resources, bespoke materials, and engaging messages that communicate the need for and impact of the NSPCC’s work with children.  

Are you someone with excellent writing skills, a strong eye for detail, and experience of presenting information in a clear and persuasive way for a range of audiences? Are you great at working collaboratively with colleagues and managing your workload to meet competing deadlines? 

Whilst fundraising experience is highly desirable, we are looking for candidates with transferrable skills. If you are working in a content creation or communications role, we would love to hear from you. 

If you would like to discuss this fixed-term position in more detail, please contact Georgie Richardson at 0203 772 9138 or georgiana.richardson@nspcc.org.uk

Interviews for this post will take place on the 19th and 20th of May.

Company

NSPCC (the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is a large national charity which campaigns to end child abuse and provides a range of services to children, young people and families throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. NSPCC has 1,830 employees, 11,000 volunteers and an annual income of £134 million. Founded in 1884, NSPCC is governed by Royal Charter, first granted by Queen Victoria in 1895.

NSPCC specialises in child protection. It is the only UK children’s charity with statutory powers to intervene on behalf of children, powers which have existed for more than a century. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, only local authorities and the NSPCC can apply to a court for a care, supervision, or child assessment order.

NSPCC provides 24/7 helplines for both adults and children. The NSPCC helpline supports thousands of parents, professionals and families. Adults can contact by phone or online in order to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if necessary. The helpline is staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in areas such as teaching, health and social work. Professionals such as teachers and doctors are also encouraged to contact the helpline for information and guidance. NSPCC says the number of calls and online contacts to the helpline is increasing year by year.

ChildLine, NSPCC’s free 24/7 counselling service for children, marks its 30th anniversary during 2016. Trained ChildLine counsellors talk to children, helping them with any problems they're facing. In 2014-15, there were nearly 300,000 counselling sessions carried out between young people and ChildLine. The most common issues were family relationships, low self-esteem and unhappiness, abuse, bullying and online bullying and self-harm.

NSPCC also has over 40 service centres across the UK and the Channel Islands. At these centres, the charity works directly with children and families on a range of issues, such as protecting children from sexual abuse, drugs and alcohol misuse and neglect.

The charity also visits 9-11 year olds in schools across the country through the NSPCC Schools Service, helping them to understand what abuse is and giving them the confidence to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

In addition to its London headquarters, NSPCC has regional offices in Luton (East of England region), Gillingham (London & South East region), Leeds (Northern region), Birmingham (West Midlands region), Plymouth (South West region), St Helier (Jersey), Belfast (Northern Ireland) and Glasgow (Scotland).
