We're looking for an experienced Wellbeing Partner to join us at Save the Children UK!

About Us

Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. In the UK and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.  When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave.  We ensure children's unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

About the role

Save the Children UK see the imperative to change thinking on wellbeing by promoting the value of ‘prevention before cure' and by taking a data driven, strategic, pre-emptive integrated and intersectional approach, encompassing the physical, mental, social, and financial wellbeing of colleagues.    

As Wellbeing Partner you will work as part of a dynamic team who are responsible for the delivery of effective and efficient approaches to improving the wellbeing of colleagues.

You will support the Head of Health, Safety and Wellbeing to ensure that workstreams are planned and managed effectively, you will take a lead in successfully delivering specific projects and pieces of wellbeing work, and work alongside HR, OD, L&D and D, E&I colleagues. You will be working to systemically embed wellbeing through our ‘Organisation of the Future' transformation Programme - Engaging and empowering colleagues, to work with greater autonomy, collegiality, and create more opportunities to grow.    

In this role, you will: 

  • Develop a plan to implement and deliver the health and wellbeing strategy.
  • Design and deliver workplace wellbeing programmes and initiatives aligned to the strategy.
  • Support the design and delivery of related inclusion programmes, ensuring we take an intersectional and joined-up approach.
  • Support the work of the Organisational Development Team embedding a systemic approach to wellbeing across the organisation.
  • Support in implementing and maintaining a wellbeing culture within Save the Children so that we are seen as an employer of choice by empowering our colleagues to prioritise their wellbeing.
  • Work with the internal Communication Team and SMEs to review organisation wide comms and curate, create and update the Health, Safety, and Wellbeing internal webpages.
  • Partner with managers and leaders to understand root causes of stress and work with business Partners to build plans to improve wellbeing, and experience of colleagues.
  • Lead on content design for wellbeing learning and partner with L&D to implement and deliver. 
  • Lead the Peer support networks and wider working groups to further embed a culture of psychological safety.
  • Facilitate discussion-based workshops and deliver wellbeing training to teams, both in-person and online.
  • Develop and maintain a robust knowledge-based library of information and research ensuring SCUK's wellbeing interventions for people promote best practice and are evidence-based.
  • Collect, monitor, and evaluate data on impact and efficacy.
  • Support the Health and Wellbeing Manager in the delivery of initiatives.

About you

To be successful in this role, you'll be a self-starter, confident to self-manage time and resources, and committed to collaborative working across professional boundaries. 

We're looking for someone resilient and authentic, with willingness to work flexibly and develop new skills and knowledge related to the role. 

A confident strategic thinker, you'll be data driven and innovative, and comfortable sitting with a level of ambiguity in your day-to-day.

To be successful, it is important that you have:

  • Significant demonstrable experience and expertise working in a wellbeing role.
  • An understanding of issues around work psychology, behaviours, and psychological safety.
  • Experience in project management, research, and evidence-based wellbeing programme development.
  • Strong understanding of diversity/equity/inclusion issues relating to wellbeing.
  • TRiM manager or willing to undertake the training.
  • Mental health First aid qualification.
  • Professional qualification, NEBOSH, IOSH, CIPD or equivalent experience desirable.
  • Experience in building relationships and engaging with colleagues.
  • Commitment to Save the Children's vision, mission and values.

What we offer you:

Working for a charity provides one of the best benefits there is – a sense of purpose and reward for helping others. However, we understand the importance of giving back to our employees to ensure a happy and healthy working environment and work/life balance.

  • We focus on flexibility, inclusion, collaboration, health and wellbeing both in and outside of work.
  • We provide a wide range of benefits which will reward your hard work, motivate you, and inspire you to work to improve the lives of children every day.

Please note: To avoid disappointment, you are advised to submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to close the vacancy early if a high volume of applications are received. This is to ensure that we can manage application levels whilst maintaining a positive candidate experience. Unfortunately, once a vacancy has closed, we are unable to consider further applications.

Ways of Working:  Remote First – The majority of our roles can be performed remotely, however you may work from the office as often as you wish. Whilst you will be predominantly working from home,  we may at times require you to come to your contracted office (the People team currently meet once per month in person in London, but you may be required to travel up to 2-4 days per month).  Note: This will be agreed with your Line Manager and team. This is intended to be time spent on collaborating with colleagues and relationship building. 

Flexible Working - We are happy to discuss flexible working options at interview.


Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion: 

Save the Children UK believes in a world that is fair, inclusive and equitable where all children have the opportunity to change their world. We apply this to our workforce and we are committed to developing and supporting a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organisation where all employees have a sense of belonging and feel that they can be "Free to Be Me". We are not looking for just one type of person - we want to recruit people who can add fresh perspectives, innovative ideas or challenge that disrupts the risk of group think. 

We are especially interested in people whose childhood experiences - of life on a low income, of migration, of being in a racialised community, of the care system, of being LGBT+ or in an LGBT+ family or living with (or with someone with) a disability - help us to see things we might otherwise miss. Whatever your story is we want to hear it because we know that different voices, ideas, perspectives and knowledge, working together will enable us to better the lives of children around the world. This is the reason why we are all here.
