At Barnardo’s we believe in children – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. We will ensure their needs are met and their voices are heard.

240,000 children, young people and families every year. We run over 960 vital services across the UK, including counselling for children who have been abused, fostering and adoption services, vocational training and disability inclusion groups.

SalesForce has been introduced to Barnardo’s as the organisation’s strategic Customer Relationship Management database.

This role sits within the Insight Team and will be responsible for delivering a renewed focus on evidence-based decision making through effective data analysis and expert data management. In turn this will enable the Fundraising Team to respond to the Corporate Strategy’s desire to more than double voluntary net income and to become a digitally agile organisation.
