Recruitment at Save the Children UK after Brexit

Advice for job applicants

Save the Children is a great place to work and to find out more about what we offer you can find out here. To help us fight for children every single day we need to hire the best talent available in the sector, and after Brexit we want to continue to do this. Your skills and experience are important to us and we would still encourage you to apply for any roles that you are suitable for.

If you are an EU national who applies for a role at Save the Children and is successful in securing it during the transition period, i.e. between now and December 2020, you will be able to relocate to and work in the UK without restriction. A new immigration system will be in place for those arriving from 1st January 2021 and more information will be provided once it becomes available to us. Save the Children will continue to monitor developments in this area and provide advice when more information exists.
