Summary of Job
You will be responsible for managing and co-ordinating the work of the Safeguarding Support Officers and Safeguarding Communications Officer in conjunction with the needs of the safeguarding team.
A key part of the role will involve liaising with appropriate staff, volunteers and statutory agencies (with guidance from the Safeguarding Officers as appropriate) to support the delivery of the Safeguarding team’s work. The role involves a significant amount of organisation and planning, with support provided to the National Operations Manager and Head of Safeguarding, including the preparation and collation of reports and papers, and taking responsibility for the appeals process. The role involves a significant amount of contact with both internal stakeholders and external agencies, in particular managing the first referrals into the safeguarding team and co-ordinating these with the support team.
You will need to be self-confident and resilient to deal with challenging and emotional situations and have an understanding of statutory agencies in relation to vulnerable groups.
The role requires someone who is a self-motivated individual and is used to working in a high pressure, fast paced environment; you should have a strong background in administration and diary management.
The experience of having previously supported and worked in a team would be advantageous along with having previously line managed a team.
