Catch22 exists to help build a society where everyone has a good place to live, good people around them, and a fulfilling purpose. We call these our '3Ps'.
We achieve this in two ways. First, we improve lives on the frontline through delivery of public services. Secondly, we use our knowledge to change 'the system', to fix the complex web that can trap and disempower those it was set up to help. With the heart of a charity and the mindset of a business, we are uniquely placed to deliver on this challenging agenda.
As Safeguarding Advisor, you will deliver high quality, safe and responsive safeguarding advice, guidance, training and support to our operational teams. Your responsibilities will include ensuring compliance with the relevant legislative requirements in England and Wales and the internal policies relating to the safeguarding and protection of children, young people and adults at risk within the various delivery streams that the Catch22 group operates. This includes pre- and post- 16 education settings, custody, apprenticeships, employability, NCS, social care, social justice and health and high risk, high impact service lines.
This post will report to the Assistant Director for Safeguarding and will also work closely with other colleagues across our governance and risk arrangements, in identifying and addressing wider compliance issues that are identified in audits and visits. You will deputise for the Assistant Director in their absence.
Whilst this post will be home based it is expected that there will be occasional travel to sites across England and South Wales to deliver safeguarding training and as such some overnight stays will be required.
We are looking for someone with the following skills and experience:
- Relevant and evidenced significant experience in dealing with safeguarding issues for children and adults.
- Experience of delivering training
- Understanding of policies, processes and frameworks of safeguarding and experience in drafting contextual guidance
- Experience of internal and external relationships to support safeguarding
- Good basic education.
- Experience working with Microsoft Office - Word and Excel.
- Relevant experience of carrying out general administrative tasks including the use of databases.
Salary: From £34,321 per annum
