For over sixty years, the National Children’s Bureau has been bringing people and organisations together to drive change in society and create a better childhood for all babies, children and young people in the UK. Too many children are not getting the help they need to grow up safe, secure and supported. NCB is here to shine a light on where the system is failing and unite all those who can help to fix it.

We were founded by Mia Kellmer Pringle amid concerns about the welfare of children in care. Mia recognised that the way to bring about the best for these children was through co-operation. She brought together health services, education providers, children’s services – everyone with a stake in their care. Only together could they make things work better.

This approach still defines us today. Working together with our NCB Family of specialist groups, we identify the most serious issues putting our young children and people at risk and we bring people and organisations together to drive change in society and create better childhoods.

In an age of financial hardship, we’ve witnessed funding for children’s services cut by half, with a devastating impact on young lives. In an era of disinformation, trust has never had more value. That’s why it’s so important we’re here to interrogate policy and uncover evidence, taking the voices of children to the heart of government to shape better legislation. Only by working together can we bring about the best for our children.

We’re united for a better start. United for a better future. United for a better childhood.

We are now seeking a Treasurer to join the NCB Board at a critical time. The system of education, health and social care services vital to so many children is buckling under rising demand and a lack of investment.

As a qualified accountant and experienced finance professional, you will help us meet these challenges and guide the effective implementation of our new five-year, 2024-2029 strategy – Building Brighter Futures – through your deep understanding of financial management, accounting, and risk management. You will also bring the communication and influencing skills needed to be an effective Chair of our Finance, Risk and Audit Committee. Most importantly, you will bring a genuine alignment with our mission to create better lives for all children and young people.
