Child abuse is preventable if we all work together.
This is our belief. It drives us. Our purpose is to work with communities to fight for every childhood.
Together for Childhood at the NSPCC is our long-term project working with local communities to make them safer for
children. We work with local partners and families to come together to prevent abuse and tackle the problems
that cause it, head-on. Join the Together for Childhood team in Glasgow as a Research & Evaluation Officer
and lead the development and implementation of our local evaluation and learning work.
Do you want to join a team where you can grow, lead and drive change?
You'll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You'll discover
opportunities to grow, creatively address challenges, and work with others towards to inclusive and lasting
change. As local lead, you'll get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and support
those you work with to thrive in their roles.
This role will manage a Research and Evaluation Assistant, and together the Glasgow Together for Childhood evaluation
team will lead on developing new and interesting opportunities to understand and assess how the initiative is
working for children and families in their local communities.

neglect through systems change. Together for Childhood sites are places of continuous learning and the NSPCC
