Job description

Expert Referral and Screening Worker

Location: London / Agile working
Contract: permanent, subject to funding
Hours: 35 hours per week (please note as of 1st April 2024 Safer London will be moving to a 32 hour/4 day working week)
Starting salary: £33,545

As Safer London enters a dynamic new stage of development looking at the next phase of its organisational strategy, we have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and experienced individual to join our dedicated team of practitioners. We are currently seeking an Expert Referral and Screening Worker to evaluate incoming referrals and assess the needs and risks of young Londoners and parents/carers accessing Safer London’s services and support.

About you:

Do you possess in-depth knowledge of statutory service processes and safeguarding best practice? Are you an exceptional communicator? Are you responsive, empathetic, and able to develop trusted relationships with young Londoners? Do you have an understanding and curiosity about the diverse experiences and challenges young Londoners and their families face? Are you committed to social justice, equity, and inclusion? Are you resilient? If yes, then you could be who we are looking for.

About us:

Safer London is a charity working with young Londoners and families who are affected by violence and exploitation. We believe that when a child or young person comes to us, they are just that – a child or a young person: we don’t define them by the issue that has brought them to us. By working alongside young Londoners, their families, and peers in the places where they spend their time, we can create a safer London not just for them but for everyone.

About the role:

In this impactful role, you will play a critical part in the safeguarding process by evaluating incoming referrals and assessing the needs and risks of young Londoners and parents/carers accessing Safer London’s services and support. As an Expert Referral and Screening Worker, you will be the first point of contact for the individuals and agencies wanting to access our services.

What we offer:

Safer London continually reviews its pay and offers a competitive benefits package to all employees, including the following benefits:

- 4-day/32-hour work week from April 1st, 2024, with no impact on pay. This means that you will have a regular day off in the week with no impact on your pay
- Agile working: flexibility to work in different locations including from home, our office in Southwark and/or community locations (libraries/co-working spaces)
- Flexible Working: our Flexible Working Policy allows requests to work flexibly from the start of your employment
- New modern offices
- A contributory Pension Scheme
- Enhanced family leave
- Reduced caseloads compared to statutory services
- Interest-free Season Ticket Loans
- Cycle to Work Scheme
- Free access to a confidential 24/7 helpline service with a specialist range of support and information
- Death in Service Benefit
- Opportunities to develop and progress your career, including an extensive programme of learning courses
- Initial Annual Leave allowance of 28 days’ holiday, rising to 30 days after 3 years and 33 days after 5 years, plus bank holidays and other statutory holidays; part time employees receive a pro rata entitlement. From April 1st, the annual leave benefit will be pro rata in line with a 32-hour working week

Additional Information:

Safer London is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and we expect anyone who works and volunteers with us to share this commitment. As part of this commitment, we will request a DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check, as well as references covering the last five years, for the successful candidate.

We encourage people from all sections of our community to apply for jobs with us. We particularly welcome disabled, male and LGBTQIA+ applicants because these communities are currently under-represented in our workforce. We know that to make London a safer place for the young people that live here we need a diverse range of perspectives, experience, and knowledge.

Sound good? Here’s how to apply:

To apply for this role, complete the online Webrecruit application form which can also be accessed via the Safer London website or for further information about this role and working for Safer London, please refer to the Job Pack.

As an agile working organisation, shortlisting will take place on a rolling basis and the closing date is subject to change at any time. Interviews will take place in person in Central London. We envisage interviews will take place the 6 & 7 March where successfully shortlisted candidates will be invited to our recruitment event.
