At SOS-UK we strive to make our community a welcoming, caring and enthusiastic one, fuelling ambition with opportunities and support to help us all achieve our personal and professional goals.
In return for your passion and experience we offer the flexibility for work-life balance, a competitive salary for the non-profit sector and excellent holiday allowance. We’re open to considering requests for job-share or part-time working.
We do not offer any unpaid/non-credit bearing placement opportunities or work experience.
Our salary bands and pay gaps are public and we have adopted a pay ratio of 1:3 for core staff. Student Roles and contractors will always be paid at least a real living wage, including under-18s.
SOS-UK are taking positive action to address an under-representation of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) employees within our workforce. When recruiting new staff, we offer BAME applicants the option of requesting that their application is considered under the terms of our BAME Guaranteed Interview Scheme. To progress to interview applicants must demonstrate they meet the essential criteria for the role as outlined in the role profile.
On our job applications we do not ask as standard whether applicants have any spent or unspent convictions (under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974). Applicants will still be requested to complete a DBS check if the role requires one.
We’re totally committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation.
SOS-UK adopts an open and flexible approach to working arrangements, with many of the current team opting to be home-based, with those that prefer the location and environment of an office space able to work in one of NUS' offices around the UK.
To further support positive work-life balance, all staff are offered a generous holiday allowance and a time off in lieu policy alongside time off for volunteering and other commitments.
Should you have family/caring responsibilities, we have a whole package of family-friendly policies that provide for flexible working; additional paid maternity and paternity leave; childcare pay; and leave for family emergencies.
As an organisation devoted to furthering sustainable development, it's important we practice what we preach:
