Our Values


Accountability: We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters, partners and, most of all, children.

Ambition: We are demanding of ourselves and our colleagues, set high goals and are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for children.

Collaboration: We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children.

Creativity: We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children.

Integrity: We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behaviour; we never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interests of children.

If you are interested in working for Save the Children, you should know that there are certain values and behaviours that drive all our work. They are integral to what we do and how we do it - so we look for them in everyone we work with.

Safeguarding Children
Finally and most importantly, we believe in always protecting children and young people. That means extensive vetting is carried out before you start working with us. In addition, if you will be working with children, we check your details against police and government records. When you are a member of our staff, you will need to know our safeguarding procedures and abide by our code of conduct.

We welcome applications from all suitably qualified individuals regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
