About Coram Voice

Coram Voice is part of the Coram Group of charities. We are a leading children’s rights organisation. We champion the rights of children. We get young voices heard in decisions that matter to them and work to improve the lives of children in care, care leavers and others who depend upon the help of the state

Coram is committed to improving the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people.

We support children and young people from birth to independence, creating a change that lasts a lifetime.

Coram is the UK’s oldest children’s charity founded by Thomas Coram in London helping vulnerable children and young people since 1739. Today, the Coram group helps more than one million children, young people, families and professionals every year by providing access to the skills and opportunities they need to thrive.

About the role

Working as a member of Coram Voice’s growing Voices Improving Care team, you will be part of a national research programme with distinguished academics and a leading children’s rights charity. You will get experience across many areas including project support and events management.

The main focus of the role will be to support the Bright Spots Programme in creating a series of workshops/ online events around the Bright Spots Well-Being Indicators. These events will help local authorities who have taken part in the Bright Spots Programme learn more about what makes life good for children in care and care leavers.

Linked tasks include supporting the Bright Spots team to create online content (blogs, vlogs, social media, newsletters) to spread awareness about the Bright Spots Programme and further increase understanding of the experiences of children in care/care leavers.

You will also support the smooth running of the Bright Spots Programme, assisting with administrative tasks and research.

This is a good opportunity for a current student or graduate who wants to apply their knowledge and any experience to help change the lives of other young people. You will get to experience work and life at Coram Voice, a national children’s rights charity, and get a valuable insight into our business and culture. You will develop many new skills and qualities that will be valuable whatever you choose to do in the future.
