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. You will provide leadership to deliver a best-in-class user experience, content and personalisation in support of member growth and activation.

You will play a key leadership role in the design, development and constant refinement of the website strategy as well as its implementation using data and insight to guide plans.
This is a unique opportunity to build the department and recruit posts such as: design resource, web support & project managers and planning resource. The team works closely with the content and information teams who will write/provide content, guided by what is required for optimised search and the IT team for security and integration with other systems (the website build is done externally).
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.
This position is 35 hours per week, however with the responsibility this post incurs you will be expected to work those hours as necessary to fulfil your duties. There is a requirement to be contactable outside office hours.

Then join Shelter in the brand new role of Head of Community Contracts and you could soon be responsible for managing change, influencing stakeholders and shaping how we deliver contracts and grants within our Community Services in the future.

So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home.

This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

About the team
Shelter’s Community and National Services teams deliver a large number of contracts and grants programmes. Central to our vision is placing our Community Hubs located in England at the heart of their communities. Providing advocacy that achieves systemic change for not only individuals, but the wider community and local practice, our hubs focus on developing relationships, building trust and helping to organise local energy. They also work with groups, organisations and individuals that want to bring about change at a local level, as well as contribute to national change to better tackle housing and homelessness issues. Our contracts and grants programmes are critical in helping deliver systemic change. Our ambition is to design and build even better services so that people who have lived experience are at the centre and we can play our part in addressing local and national change priorities. You’ll play a big part in helping to make that happen.
About the Role
This challenging role has been created to support the development of the contract management frameworks of the larger contracts being delivered within our Community Hubs. We’ll also rely on you to critically review and manage Housing and Homelessness contracts and grants relating to Families, Women and Children, Substance Misuse, Drug and Alcohol and Homeless support.

You’re also adept at developing a vision, influencing a variety of stakeholders and driving change to systems and practises within your own remit and more broadly across an organisation. Experience of matrix or change management and a proven ability to work alongside peers with a positive approach are must haves too, as is the confidence to make decisions, implement plans, lead strategic initiatives and form recommendations for a senior leadership team to help develop a services directorate.

Make Seconds Count are an extraordinary charity. They are less than 4 years old but are already raising over £1m per year to support women and men living with secondary breast cancer. Based in Scotland, they are a UK wide organisation full of amazing people – from dedicated volunteers to patient champions and the dynamic board of trustees.
Then there is the founder!
Make 2nds Count was founded by Lisa Fleming in 2017. Lisa, who was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer decided that she wanted to make a change. By setting up Make Seconds Count she has certainly done that. Her extraordinary passion, commitment and honesty were the starting point for Make Seconds Count. Four years later there is now a whole community working with her to raise both awareness and funds to support further research into secondary breast cancer and to support the patients and families affected.

This is your chance to join one of the UK’s fastest growing charities as its new Fundraising Manager following the promotion of the previous postholder to Head of Operations. You’ll be an experienced professional fundraiser who wants to make their mark by bringing your own plans and ideas to this fast-growing charity. If you are motivated by a blank sheet of paper – this is the role for you.
The charity are already great at events and community fundraising already, so they are looking for someone to bring skills in other forms of fundraising, such as corporate fundraising, accessing grants, trust fundraising or major gift fundraising.

Reporting to the Head of Operations, you’ll manage a Community and Events Fundraiser and work alongside a small team of staff, volunteers and very committed Board members.
On offer is a competitive salary and benefits, the chance to work from home or the office (where there is a free gym membership and free parking), a great team and the chance to really make your mark by implementing with your own fundraising plan.

Shelter’s strategy is to transform the nation’s housing and, as a result, to radically improve the lives of millions of people. Our ambition is to use our power to fight for home, because we believe home is everything. We are committed to being an organisation that continually learns and develops, rooted in trust, inclusion, compassion and fearlessness, with equity and a focus on lived experience at the heart of all we do. Whether they are volunteers or employees, the people who work with us must feel enabled, supported and empowered to meet future challenges. The recent establishment of a new Directorate of Equity, Inclusion & Culture demonstrates that the work to embed this future-focused culture is well underway, and we are constructing a comprehensive programme of culture change, intersectionality, inclusion and equity.
As our new Assistant Director of Equity & Inclusion, you’ll make a vital contribution to enabling Shelter to become an organisation where equity, inclusion, lived experience and anti-racism are held at the core of everything we do. Working across three main strands – volunteering, involvement and diversity & inclusion – you’ll support our incoming Director in rolling out strategic programmes, as well as delivering your own portfolio of objectives. Key relationships will include colleagues in Talent Acquisition and HR Delivery, and you must forge strong and collaborative partnerships with the Anti-Racism Steering Group and Affinity Groups. More, you’ll be a visible and inspirational leader for our Volunteering and Involvement teams, shaping strategies and plans that enable best-in-class practice and which truly value lived experience in every domain.
Candidates will have extensive experience of designing and implementing equality, diversity, and inclusion strategies within a complex organisational structure. A nuanced understanding of the role of volunteers within Shelter, and their value, is essential. With a commitment to involvement and lived experience that you’ve already applied in a range of contexts and approaches, you’ll have a rich and appreciative grasp of co-production and its power. Optimistic, pragmatic and with an impressive track record of values-led leadership, you’ll relish the chance to play a vital part in ensuring Shelter is in the best possible shape to achieve our ambitious goals.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home; our enemy is the social injustices at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our hiring decisions we take pride in our aspiration to be inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent. We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation. We particularly welcome candidates from BAME backgrounds and / or other marginalised identities, including those with lived experience of the housing emergency.
Closing date: 16 February 2022.
