Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us. And it inspires our Communications team to find ever-more creative ways to promote our work and share how people can get involved in making a difference to children’s lives. Join us as a Social Media Coordinator and create work that means the world.


The aim of the NSPCC’s social media presence is to inform our audiences about child abuse in a way that is understandable, approachable, compelling and relevant. Our social platforms are an environment for us to engage and support our audiences; helping them to feel safe in speaking out and encouraging them to take action. 


This role sits within our award-winning Social Media team and offers a fantastic opportunity to take a leading role in managing the NSPCC's national social media calendar; creating and coordinating campaigns and always-on content to further our goals of reaching more people, deepening our engagement and ultimately protecting more children from abuse. You'll be part of a team that champions creative innovation in social media content which is educative, credible, impactful and stigma-breaking. 



Main responsibilities:

- Co-ordinate the NSPCC’s busy social media calendar including some basic content creation

- Co-ordinate and develop an ongoing schedule of new content for the NSPCC’s social media platforms

- Take responsibility to quickly brief in or produce new and relevant content to respond to trending topics and ad-hoc opportunities

- Oversee the alignment of the NSPCC social media calendar with the overall organisation-wide comms strategy

- Proofread content supplied by colleagues and ensuring all posts follow a consistent tone of voice

- Work closely with colleagues across the Comms Directorate to establish best practice in developing new content for NSPCC’s social media platforms

- Secure and brief talent for social media content to maximise reach with new audiences



We are looking for someone with:

- Exceptional organisation and planning skills

-  Excellent written communication skills and experience with copy-writing for social media platforms

- A track record of collaboration and the ability to negotiate with stakeholders to reach social-first solutions

-  Knowledge and experience in managing a social media calendar with success in creating and commissioning innovative and engaging social media content

- Some experience of creating and editing basic graphics, video and animation using software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe Effects and/or photo editing software



Join us and you’ll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You’ll discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that’ll bring the best out in you. And you’ll get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.




As an organisation, we are committed to creating and fostering a culture that promotes safeguarding and the welfare of all children and adults at risk. Our safer recruitment practices support this by ensuring that there is a consistent and thorough process of obtaining, collating, analysing and evaluating information from and about candidates to ensure that all persons appointed are suitable to work with our children and adults.
