We are the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to tackling child sexual abuse. We work to prevent abuse from happening in the first place - and to prevent it from happening again if it already has.
We work with all those affected by abuse including adult male and female abusers; young people with harmful sexual behaviour; children with concerning sexual behaviours; victims of abuse and other family members. But we also work in families and with adults and young people where there has been no abuse, to help them keep themselves and others as safe as possible.
Our vision is is a world in which children's right to live free from sexual abuse and exploitation becomes a reality. Since 1992 we've been at the forefront of innovative services working with adults to keep children safe.
We're recuiting for a Communications Assistant, to be based in our office in Epsom, Surrey.
Communications is key to all of our work, and we need a multi-talented Communications Assistant to support all aspects of our communications, including social media, digital, marketing, fundraising, events and media. On top of that, over the next year we’ll be holding an event in parliament, releasing our annual report, and continuing the expansion of our Stop It Now! helpline. The post holder will be heavily involved in all of these projects.
The successful applicant will have a background in one or more of the communications areas listed above, perhaps from a charity or agency. They’ll be a fast learner, able to pick up the nuances of our messaging and brand, and to develop new skills. They’ll be well-organised and comfortable working under pressure, delivering their own projects and supporting others.
Applicants don’t need a background in or specific knowledge of child protection. Of greater importance is an affinity with our mission, a commitment to excellence in communications, and a capability to successfully help our charity grow and develop sustainably. The post offers considerable scope for creativity, and would suit a motivated individual who is looking for their next career move.
The successful candidate will be ready to hit the ground running, bringing a range of skills and attributes, but eager to learn new ones. They will be keen to take ownership of this role and deliver high-quality communications activities which help us achieve our vision of a world in which children are kept safe from harm. If this sounds like you, then please get in touch.
This is a full-time position, initially for 12 months. We offer a salary of £18,500 per annum and 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays. This post will be subject to a DBS check.
The closing date is Monday 3 June at 10am. We expect interviews to be held on Monday 10 June.
If you would like an informal discussion about the role, please contact Michael Walsh, Media and Communications Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01372 847 169.
