About Us

For 60 years the National Children’s Bureau (NCB) has been building a better childhood for all.

As a leading children’s charity, we take the voices of children to the heart of Government, bringing people and organisations together to drive change in society and deliver a better childhood for the UK. We are united for a better childhood.

About the Role

The IT & Digital Manager is a new role with a dual focus, working both to ensure the provision of high-quality IT services and on projects to deliver improvements and change. This role reports to the Head of Digital and Technology.

NCB is a growing organisation, currently with approximately 150 staff working in a hybrid way across 3 offices, with the majority based in our London Fields office in London. We primarily provide IT through an outsourced IT provider and the IT & Digital Manager will work closely with them to ensure a seamless service for our users. We have recently moved from a remote desktop to cloud-based working (Microsoft365, Sharepoint, Teams), and are ambitious to capture all the benefits of this and strengthen our use of technology.

This role requires a mix of technical expertise, analytical thinking and excellent communication skills. The role will suit someone with a passion for working both with technology and with people, and with an enthusiasm for driving improvement.
