Job description

The Children’s Society has been helping children and young people in this country for over 130 years. We run local services that support children when they are at their most vulnerable and in desperate need of help. We’re there for children, every step of the way. 

This role sits within our youth impact domain, which works to provide immediate one-to-one and group support for children who urgently need support. Your role will be to help us maintain and develop innovative practice to support our work in our services around the country. 

A key part of this role will be you will have the ability to: 

  • To join the award winning Disrupting Exploitation Programme.  This role will be part of a National Programme that works in Greater Manchester, Birmingham and Greater London. 
  • This role is required to work one-to-one with young people who are victims of child exploitation and on systems change.
  • Systems change means working with contexts, policies and procedures that determine how young people who are exploited are responded to.
  • Work as a subject matter expert on child exploitation (with a particular focus on child criminal exploitation) to deliver a wide range of systems change ‘interventions’, which could include training police and partners, writing guidance or producing resources to support improved practice and developing strong partnerships to undertake multi-agency working.

Due to a high volume of female applicants, we particularly welcome applications from men.  This is so we’re in the best position possible to reflect the young people that we work with and support through this programme.

The Children’s Society runs over 100 local services that help thousands of young people who desperately need our support, and we campaign to get laws and policies changed to make children’s lives happier and safer. 

Every day we’re changing the lives of children in this country for the better – and with your help, tomorrow we can be there for even more. 

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.
