Opportunities for permanent roles in a range of business sectors

Quality Assurance Officer

Part-time 16 hours per week Mon – Thurs 10am – 2pm - Cambridge. £15,959 per annum + benefits.

“We work to make the internet a safer place.”  

Never has a truer word been spoken of the Internet Watch Foundation. Our work is trusted by police, governments and technology companies. And now you could be part of our team as we’re looking for seven additional people to help us in our mission. 

These seven will possess the right personal attributes to make a difference to the lives of sexually abused and exploited children around the world. 

You’ll be part of a new taskforce being set up within IWF’s world-renowned hotline to grade and hash two million images showing the sexual abuse of children. The hashes of the images will provide the backbone to initiatives deployed by police and internet companies around the world.

This is a tough job and only emotionally resilient people should apply. The interview stages will help us assess a candidate’s suitability to the role and successful candidates can expect a gold-standard welfare programme to support them with this task. 

This is not a job for those on a personal mission, or for those who are easily upset by online content. And you don’t need to be techy – we’ll teach you everything you need to know. 

We’re looking for people with attention to detail, who can make accurate judgements time after time and who are looking to gain an enormous sense of making a difference in the world. You could be any age, and from any background. What will unite you is your passion to do good, and your resilience to material showing the sexual abuse of children. 

About us:

In 1996 IWF was founded with four staff members and a determination to do what’s right; we assessed 26 reports in our Hotline that year and found two instances of child sexual abuse imagery.

Today, the assessment of more than 1.2 million individual reports has led to the successful removal of millions of child sexual abuse images and videos across more than 560,000 webpages globally (up until the end of 2019.)

Last year alone, our technology crawled 72 million webpages and two thirds of a billion images in pursuit of child sexual abuse imagery. And we now provide more than two billion people globally a safe place to report this content.
