KidsAid seeks a Standards & Compliance Lead to ensure compliance with ethical, professional, and clinical standards relevant to KidsAid’s beneficiaries.


If you wish to make a long-term contribution to our community, we are your charity!

Our aim is to safeguard children so that early life trauma does not become a lifelong burden, and manifest into more serious issues in the future.

Your role as Standards & Compliance Lead will be vital!

We are looking for a Standards & Compliance Lead with the following qualities

  • An understanding of due diligence and charity standards.

Time Commitment

The board meets in person in Northampton six times a year. There may also be occasional ‘away days’.
