For over 50 years this national children's charity has been building a better childhood for all.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Participation Team delivering and developing their work on children and young people’s engagement and participation.

Participation Programme Officer
Reference: 2152
Location: London Fields, London and/or Belfast, Northern Ireland (they promote a hybrid way of working).
Contract: Full-time, Permanent. Job share on a part-time basis considered
Salary: £32,978 per annum (London) / £30,535 per annum (Northern Ireland) 
Other benefits: Include guaranteed pay increases every year up to third year anniversary and 30 days holiday plus bank holiday (and an additional 3 days leave for Christmas org-wide shut down)

The post holder can be based in either Northern Ireland or England and will take responsibility for the effective delivery of key participation projects in both nations. While they are advertising this role as full-time, they are open to applications to job share on a part-time basis. This is because they want the best people for their roles, and they recognise that sometimes those people are not always available full-time due to other commitments.

Areas of work will include delivery of the Our Minds Our Future mental health programme in Northern Ireland and a range of Health focused projects in England, as well as supporting other teams across the charity in their consultation activities and contacts with children and young people. Experience of developing and delivering engagement with disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs, and those with adverse childhood experiences, is a must for this post.

This role provides the opportunity to work closely with children and young people, colleagues and external partners to co-ordinate and deliver a range of consultation activities, develop materials and outputs, and contribute to their overall team planning and processes. You will also be responsible for managing CYP data, ensuring safeguarding practices are adhered to, and reporting against outcomes. You will be an integral part of a fast-paced team with a strong national profile and reputation for expertise and excellence in delivery.

This role includes out of hours working and travel between Northern Ireland and England, depending on location, agreed in advance.

Applications close at 11:59pm on Sunday 5th June 2022.
Assessment and interviews to be conducted on Monday 13th June 2022.
