Help transform the way we work to accelerate our vision of a world without barriers for every deaf child.
We are the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS), the leading charity for deaf children. We’re here for every deaf child who needs us – no matter what their level or type of deafness or how they communicate. Our vision is a world without barriers for every deaf child. Together we overcome the social and educational barriers that hold deaf children back.
We’ve come a long way in our journey to be more digitally focussed with regards to how we work with deaf children, young people and their families. The onset of the pandemic showed how we could pivot to “do” digital to deliver services to more people than ever online. We’ve never reached so many people as we do now. Around four times more people are accessing our online services than before the pandemic, all thanks to the effort and drive of everyone working together to create new, innovative ways to deliver our services.
If we’re going to achieve our vision of no deaf child left behind by 2030, we need to be doing even more. We can't just 'do' digital we need to ‘be’ digital. We are also creating a new customer impact and transformation hub which aims to put customer experience at the heart of all our delivery.
The newly created Head of Website Operations will oversee the development and maintenance of the websites for the NDCS, including its main corporate website and the Buzz website designed for young deaf people and associated strategy, plans and prioritisation.

We seek someone with substantial website management experience at a senior level with a strong understanding of customer experience design and user journey mapping and demonstrable expertise in using this to refine the online experience to meet customers’ needs. You will come with significant understanding of site optimisation for SEO and using data to improve the site’s ranking. You will also have in-depth knowledge of setting requirements and managing third parties to deliver them. You will have demonstrable experience in developing, implementing and refining testing plans for various web solutions, with strong attention to detail with an analytical mind and outstanding problem-solving skills.
You will also need to be proficient with data structures and how they inform personalised user experiences, with a deep understanding of digital tracking and analysis tools. Strong stakeholder management and influencing skills, across functions is a must, as is demonstrable drive, tenacity and self-motivation to cut through obstacles.
Ultimately, we seek someone with a high level of professional credibility, who is self-motivated, emotionally resilient and able to cope successfully in challenging and stressful situations.
