Senior paid media officer

22.5 hours per week 
£21,600 per annum
Epsom, Surrey - hybrid working available

We are recruiting for an experienced Senior Paid Media Officer within a small communications team that is always busy and punches above its weight. You will report to the Head of Communications and Engagement, working closely with all others in the team. The role will be maternity cover, likely for 12 months.

This is a revamped role, reflecting a renewed emphasis that we place on our paid media, and your work will be transformational.

  • You will lead on paid media delivery, development and evaluation, working at the cutting edge of digital campaigning and managing key day-to-day relationships with PR agencies, government contacts and expert industry support.
  • You will deliver and continually refine the digital component of our online child sexual abuse deterrence campaign to bring about positive and measurable behavioural change amongst people engaging in online child sexual abuse.
  • You will lead the development, delivery and continual evaluation of specific paid media campaigns and projects from across the Foundation to reach our different audiences, including our Young People, Scotland and Wales teams.

About you

Our ideal candidate will be energetic and proactive, with great writing and analytical skills and a knack for getting the most out of paid media and integrating them with organic social media, websites, campaigns and other communications.

You will have a track record of delivering multiple projects side-by-side and be able to adjust when new high-priority work comes in. You will be at home with the technical jargon of the digital world, but be able to interpret and translate this for colleagues across the Foundation, cutting through piles of data to spot what is important.

You will be on board with our mission to prevent child sexual abuse by working with people who have committed it or who are at risk of doing so, plus the families and professionals around them.

We appreciate not every candidate will meet every requirement for the role. If your experience looks a little different from what we’ve identified and you think you can bring value to the role, we’d love to learn more about you.

We think you will thrive in this role if you have:

  • Experience of managing and optimising multiple paid media accounts
  • Experience of translating complex, sensitive information into clear, jargon-free content
  • Experience of analysing, evaluating and reporting on large data sets including through, clearly explaining trends and proactively recommending improvements
  • Ability to work independently and be proactive in spotting and solving problems
  • Experience of working between subject matter experts and external agencies

What you'll get from us

It’s a busy year for us as we plan and launch a rebrand, overhaul our websites and deliver a national multi-channel campaign that makes a difference to society and individuals and protects children.

Your skills and experience will rapidly develop and expand as you take day-to-day responsibility for key projects, having the freedom to be our paid media expert. You will get 3 days of learning and development each year to make sure you stay on top of your game.

We are expecting this to be a hybrid working role following a satisfactory probation period. We are an inclusive, friendly, respectful and kind team and you will get a warm welcome. We offer a NEST pension, an employee assistance programme and the option of Benenden medical cover.

How to apply

We really welcome informal conversations with prospective candidates about the role and the charity. Please feel free to contact Head of Communications and Engagement, Michael Walsh on 07540 690315.

West Midlands

Circles of Support and Accountability aim to rehabilitate people who have committed sexual offences against children, and help them to not offend again.

Each circle includes 4 to 6 trained volunteers from the local community who help to support one person who has sexually offended. The volunteers commit to meeting with the core member for 12 to 18 months. 

The circle provides practical skills and support to the Core Member according to their needs, which might include social skills, finding work or hobbies, or looking for suitable accommodation. They will also receive disclosure about the Core Members offending behaviour, and support them to recognise unhelpful thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour which might link to their risk of offending, and encourage them to develop more healthy strategies.  

The Core Member will be subject to probation oversight within the criminal justice system. Volunteers are supported by a professional Circle Coordinator, who liaises with other key professionals working with the Core Member, including police and probation.  

About you

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are committed to preventing sexual abuse to form circles in the West Midlands area.  Circles reflect the communities they work in and we welcome volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds.  

  • You must be over the age of 18 
  • We will support you to apply for an Enhanced DBS check.  There are some convictions which would preclude you from volunteering so; please speak to the Circles Coordinator for more information. 
  • We’ll provide training before you start volunteering, which usually takes  place over 2 weekend days or 4 evenings. 

How to apply

Please read our information for potential volunteers and complete the volunteer application form. If you prefer to receive an application pack in the post, please email

We are running volunteer information evenings for people interested in becoming volunteers.  The sessions will provide a presentation about circles, and an opportunity to ask questions.  No need to book, just log in! View our sessions here and find out more.
