NSPCC Senior Policy Officers x 2
Child Safety Online, Policy and Public Affairs team
Full time, Shoreditch
£29,500 to £33,245 + London weighting of £3,366 plus pension contribution
The NSPCC is recruiting for 2 x Senior Policy Officers to take forward our ambitious work programme on Child Safety Online.
This is a critical time for shaping public policy outcomes for children. Following sustained NSPCC campaigning, the Government has committed to our ambitious calls for a statutory regulator for social networks. We’re now looking to recruit 2 exceptional people to help us influence Government, industry and regulators to take policy decisions that will protect children from online abuse, and ensure we get truly comprehensive, world-leading legislation on the statute book.
The Senior Policy Officers will lead the development of policy positions on a range of key online policy areas, working across a range of online harms and championing initiatives that tackle child online sexual abuse. You’ll have experience working to influence one or more of Government departments, industry and regulators. With a track record in building persuasive, evidence-based policy, you’ll play a key role in ensuring NSPCC’s policy recommendations gain traction. One of the posts will play a lead role in our parliamentary and public affairs activity, with an Online Harms Bill expected in the next few months, so previous parliamentary experience is desirable.
This is a rare opportunity to drive issues at the forefront of the public policy agenda. If you can help us achieve our strategic goals, using your skills and experience to strengthen the NSPCC’s impact on public policy, we want to hear from you. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with a background in public policy, regulation and industry-focused influencing. Help us keep children safe from abuse online.
