The NSPCC Schools Service is an integral part of our mission to protect children from all forms of abuse. It is responsible for delivering the ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ programme. This aims to give children an understanding and awareness of abuse in all its forms and how to recognise the signs. It reassures children that abuse is never a child’s fault, that they have the right to be safe, and it shows them where to get help and the resources available to them, including our Childline service.

We are looking for people with well-developed skills in building relationships and networks with key safeguarding leads and the local community. As a member of our team, our organisational values and behaviours would be important to you.

If you are someone with experience of delivering programmes in an educational or safeguarding setting, who is motivated by targets, with strong planning and organisational abilities, good communication and excellent people skills -  we would love to hear from you.
