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.

Save the Children UK recognises the value of diversity in all its forms at all levels of the organisation. We celebrate its role in the creation of an inclusive workplace culture and thrive on the range of experience and insight diversity and inclusivity bring to our organisation.

We are committed to creating an inclusive working environment, promoting and providing equal opportunities in employment, and preventing unlawful discrimination at recruitment and during employment. We ensure applicants will not be discriminated because of their protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 which include age, disability, gender, gender identity, race and ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, and pregnancy and maternity.

We want to increase the diversity of our organisation and particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, LGBT+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds, as these are underrepresented at Save the Children UK. We will make all efforts to meet your access requirements, please contact our recruitment team as soon as possible to discuss any adjustments you may need.

We aim to value diversity and reduce discrimination in all our work.
