ECPAT UK is excited to be recruiting a training and practice officer to develop and deliver our training and best practice programmes. You will work closely and collaborate with the programmes team to realise ECPAT UK’s strategy to protect children everywhere from trafficking and exploitation. Working alongside some of the UK's experts in the field, you will have a range of outward facing responsibilities including representing ECPAT UK in relevant training fora, interacting with clients, including in the private sector, local and national government, and other civil society organisations; and working with donors and other stakeholders. You will be a key advocate for children while representing ECPAT UK’s training and best practice calls in any public forum as well as advising on individual cases and queries through the training programme and calls into the office. You will play a central role in keeping ECPAT UK staff up to date with trends, emerging issues and contacts relevant to child trafficking and child protection.
The role will also involve supporting the communications and media manager in developing think pieces and media around training and best practice and to work with the fundraising officer to develop funding streams for training and best practice projects. In addition, you will work with the youth coordinator to ensure that young people's voices and opinions are included in our training and best practice work.
