Do you want to change the lives of children across the UK? Join us as Director of UK Impact and play a lead role in one of the UK’s most influential children’s organisations. In this key role you’ll be leading staff across Save the Children to inspire policy-makers and practitioners to change the way that parents are supported and give the poorest children the best start in life.

Our country is at a cross-roads. As we enter a new decade, after a period of sustained growth in child poverty, we have the chance to reverse that trend and close the gap in early learning between the poorest children and their better-off peers. As Director of UK Impact, you will be required to generate strategic partnerships and to raise awareness of and to accelerate progress towards SCUK’s mission. Key responsibilities include:

· Securing substantial and sustainable change for children, achieving nationwide change to transform children’s early years and reverse the rise in child poverty

· Develop and lead innovative partnerships that show how change can be achieved, building a robust evidence base and case for policy and practice change

· Leading innovative campaigning to tackle child poverty and change the national conversation about the support we provide for children.

· Developing a clear vision and strategy for our UK impact and translating this into measurable objectives for teams and departments to deliver our overall mission

· Being an authoritative external representative with partners, the media, government, parliamentarians and other decision-makers, ensuring Save the Children’s work in the UK is visible and that SCUK is shaping relevant debates

· Ensuring that resources (people and financial) are managed to maximise impact against the agreed mission and that extraordinary talent is recruited, developed and retained to deliver impact for children

· Working with relevant functional leads to ensure that necessary resources are mobilised, including participating in fundraising as necessary

To be successful you will have experience in a significant, high profile leadership role and a track-record of significant impact at UK level or in any of the four nations of the UK. A visionary, disruptive and transformative leader, you will have the creativity and charisma to inspire colleagues and partners alike. Experience of managing teams (including the leadership of managers), alongside a track record of improving performance, is also essential. In addition you will:

· Be motivated by fairness and restless to dismantle the inequalities which disfigure our society

· Have a strong ability to look at external trends and to bring external challenge and learning into an organisation

· Have the presence and emotional range to be as comfortable advocating to a member of the cabinet, to working with national practice leaders, to meeting with a family living in poverty

· Have significant leadership experience in a complex or fast-growing organisation

· Have the ability and willingness to travel as needed across the UK.
