The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.
We are looking for a meticulously organised, hard-working and enthusiastic person to support our Campaigns and Advocacy Team. Deaf children are some of the most vulnerable and educationally disadvantaged children in the UK today, and our campaigns seek to improve the quality of the services they rely on. The successful candidate will support a busy team aiming to influence local and national decision makers to remove the barriers that deaf children face.
You'll ensure the information we provide to families about services for deaf children is accurate and up to date, and that the team have all the resources and information they need to run successful campaigns.
To join our passionate and hard-working team, you’ll need experience of working in an administrative role in an office environment. You’ll also have great communication skills, be a quick learner and enjoy working as part of a team. Due to the nature of our work, accurate data collection and management, as well as exceptional attention to detail are both crucial skills for this role.
We have a strong record of campaigning success - and you can help us to achieve more for deaf children and their families. This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to join us and support our work to safeguard and improve vital services for deaf children.
