In this placement, you'll be based in the Wales Team. We're a small, friendly team with big ambitions, working to make real positive change for children that are growing up in poverty in Wales.

We're looking for someone who is interested in our work and committed to the vision, mission, values and approach of Save the Children, and who is happy to follow our policies around safeguarding and our code of conduct.

What we can do for you

In return we'll provide you with training in all aspects of the role, as well as a weekly programme of sessions which we'd design for you. The support we can offer will help to build your wider transferable skills in a range of areas and give you valuable experience of working in the charity sector.

If you are interested in the role please tell us more about yourself.

  • Good literacy skills

We also would like to hear If you have any previous volunteering experience of fundraising, campaigning and volunteering, either in a charity setting or in your own community.

If you have a disability, wellbeing or mental health issue, we can help you by making reasonable adjustments to remove or reduce barriers you might be facing in submitting your application.

The majority of SCUK employees are currently working remotely within the UK in line with UK Government guidance. Commencing July 2021 we will transition to flexible and hybrid ways of working (i.e. a mixture of remote/home and office-based working) as social distancing restrictions ease.

We are happy to discuss flexible working options at interview.
