About us:
The British Council was founded to create ‘a friendly knowledge and understanding’ between the people of the UK and wider world.  We do this by making a positive contribution to the countries we work with, using the cultural resources of the UK such as art, sport, education, science, culture, language, innovation, creativity and the sharing of the UK’s values and ways of living. This makes a lasting difference to the UK’s security, prosperity and influence.

We engage with millions of children annually, both directly and indirectly, via a wide range of activities.  These are both digital and offline, including learning English, taking exams and participating in a broad span of programmes and projects. Protecting children that come into contact with the British Council, whether directly or through our partners, therefore, is a top priority reflected in a zero tolerance risk appetite for child protection. 

Across East and South Asia we have a large network of teaching and examinations centres catering primarily for young learners and young adult students. In addition, we manage an extensive programme of projects in partnership with schools, youth organizations and educational professionals.

Both regions are expanding their work with children.

Our Equality Commitment:
Valuing diversity is essential to the British Council’s work. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to avoid unjustified discrimination, recognising discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights. All staff worldwide are required to ensure their behaviour is consistent with our policies.  

The opportunity:
The Child Protection Team provides leadership and professional advice on the implementation of the British Council global child protection strategy. Your role, as Regional Child Protection Manager, is to provide regional leadership in our East Asia and South Asia regions. Therefore, you will work with the Corporate Child Protection Team and regional networks to implement a Child Safe Programme, with an emphasis on ensuring a culture of proactive child protection systems and safe practice. 

You’ll be joining an organisation that is supremely committed to the protection of children, as illustrated by our membership of Keeping Children Safe (KCS), a network membership organisation working to increase safeguards for children in the international sector. In 2015 we were awarded level 1 ‘child safe’ organisation status under the KCS Certification Scheme, demonstrating our commitment to protecting children from abuse.

There will be frequent travel in this role across the regions and you can expect to come to the United Kingdom around 4 times per year for Global Child Protection meetings.

Please note that this position is to be based in a country within South Asia, yet to be agreed.

What we require of the successful candidate:

  • Significant full time work experience in the child protection sector including international experience.
  • Fluency in written and spoken English
  • Experience in the development and delivery of training
  • A professional graduate or post graduate qualification in a child protection related field such as Social Work, Education, Law, Health or International Development.
  • Eligibility to work in South Asia and to visit all East & South Asia  countries
