For too many young people today, life is tough... but so are we.

And we can't wait to hear about the passion, dedication and creativity you can bring to our fight for change, so every young person has the chance to thrive. The next decade needs to see real change for children and young people, so we want to hear from candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds and sectors who can help us make that happen.

This role is a corker, and there's no doubt we're looking for someone special.

You'll build, manage and lead a diverse team of three to deliver audience-focused insight using a wide range of data and analysis, including marketing and performance data, CRM data and more. But you're as excited by spreadsheets and analysis as you are interviews and ethnography, with a brilliant grasp of methodologies that help us divine the essence of what motivates people to get behind a cause as important as ours.

You're an inspiring leader and a joy to work with, developing skills and capabilities in your team, your peers and across the organisation as we become strategically and culturally driven by data and evidence. You're emotionally intelligent, creative and highly collaborative in the way you work with colleagues.

We're all about people and for us, audience comes first. You'll lead a programme that uncovers audience-focused insights to improve our supporter-engagement so that more people give more of their time, voice and money to champion young people and a future filled with hope.

Apply today - we're really looking forward to having you on the team!

To be successful in this role, you must have:

-Excellent understanding of data, marketing analysis and insight methodologies

-Be audience-led in your approaches and thinking

-Leadership skills and a presence that inspires your team, colleagues and peers

-Demonstrable evidence of change you have delivered through insight

Right now in Britain there are children and young people who tell us they are scared, unloved and unable to cope. The Children's Society works with them, step by step, for as long as it takes. We listen. We support. We act.

There are no simple answers so we work with others to tackle complex problems. Only together can we make a difference to the lives of children now and in the future.

The Children's Society is committed to safeguarding and protecting the children and young people that we work with. As such, all posts are subject to a safer recruitment process, including the disclosure of criminal records and vetting checks. We ensure that we have a range of policies and procedures in place which promote safeguarding and safer working practices across our services.

The closing date for applications is 5.00pm on Friday 3rd of April 2020.

Interviews will be held on the week commencing Monday 13th of April 2020.
