Strategic leadership and highly developed communication skills are a must as you will seek to work with partners at a senior level as well as engage with children, families and professionals across the community.
You will lead the NSPCC’s direct work in the Glasgow Service Centre, providing line management for a group of Team Managers and a Development Manager, who manage a well-established and experienced multi- disciplinary team including mental health professionals, social workers and community development staff. We provide services to children and families focusing on early child development and the prevention of abuse and neglect in families with young children.
You will use your substantial experience of managing child protection work to ensure high standards of practice are maintained in all aspects of service delivery.
The NSPCC Evidence Team generate and champion high quality evidence that informs policy and practice inside and beyond NSPCC. We champion evidence-based practice by supporting the evaluation of NSPCC services for children and families, supporting the scale up of successful activities, and by leveraging research funding resulting in world class research into what helps keep children safe and helps them get back on track after abuse.
We are seeking an Evaluation Officer to support the development and implementation of the evaluation of Together for Childhood, a place-based initiative which aims to radically improve the way we tackle child abuse and neglect, with a focus on prevention across local systems, engaging communities, families, professionals and services.
You will be educated to a higher degree level in a relevant subject area and have experience of undertaking service evaluation or social research. Experience of undertaking evaluation or research with children and young people will be an advantage.
Please note the successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check prior to starting employment.

Every day we work to protect children so we can make child abuse a thing of the past. We believe that we can make a difference for all children – by fighting for their rights, by listening to them, by helping them when they need us and by making them safe.
