Barnardo's is a 150-year-old charity on a journey to transform children's social care. As part of our 10-year corporate strategy, Barnardo's has committed to becoming a digital organisation.
The Digital and Technology team (also known as #futurebarnardos) is part of the Strategy & Performance group. Our team is responsible for leading a transformation of the whole organisation, and beyond it the whole children's health and social care sector inspiring it to take a user-
centric, data-driven approach to all our operations, products and services, and building up iteratively from small beginnings to big ideas.
Our goal is simple : to provide better social care, so that more children and families have better outcomes. Along the way we will make sure our staff are equipped and empowered to provide even better support, local government sees us as visionary leaders, and our charitable donors are inspired to be even more generous in supporting us.
We welcome applications from women, BAME and LGBTQA+ people, people with both visible and non-visible disabilities, and neurodivergent people, as we recognise that these people can be under-
represented in our sector. Given the nature of our work, it is imperative that we ensure the widest view possible as we build our products and services.
