Job Description

We are looking for an individual with experience delivering complex projects to help ensure that every child is safe online. You will have good knowledge of issues and developments in the field of online safety for children, and experience in working with a range of stakeholders to deliver impactful projects on time and to budget. You will have the ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders and can think logically and identify and implement improvements.


Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us. And it motivates our Strategy and Knowledge directorate to maintain our position as an influential, informed and forceful voice at every level. Join us as a Child Safety Online Project Officer, and lead progress that means more.


In 2020, police forces across the nations recorded more than 10,000 cyber related sexual crimes against children. With the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe this number will increase. And, as technology evolves, we must keep pace with what this means for children and create safer environments online. Our new 10-year strategy 2021-2031 identifies one of its core three goals to ensure that every child is safe online.


This role will sit within our newly formed Child Safety Online Solutions Lab and will be key to us ensuring that children are afforded the same protection in the online world as they are offline. Our team works closely with colleagues across the NSPCC to scope, plan and deliver innovative projects to keep children safe online. This involves working with a range of external partners from the third sector, government, law enforcement and industry to make sure protections for young people are as effective as possible.


This is a real opportunity to make a difference to children’s lives, but we also like to reward people by offering a great working environment, being part of a friendly and supportive team, and offering stimulating and challenging work, with plenty of development opportunities. We offer a variety of rewards and benefits including: generous annual leave, employee benefits and assistance programme, pension and life assurance schemes.


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.

As an organisation, we are committed to creating and fostering a culture that promotes safeguarding and the welfare of all children and adults at risk. Our safer recruitment practices support this by ensuring that there is a consistent and thorough process of obtaining, collating, analysing and evaluating information from and about candidates to ensure that all persons appointed are suitable to work with our children and adults.
