We believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and is at the heart of all that we do. We are on a journey, taking all possible steps to ensure that our churches and worshipping communities are truly a place where all are safe and can flourish.
The Diocesan Safeguarding team plays a key role in promoting a culture of safeguarding across the Diocese of Guildford through our communications, management of incidents and cases, training and DBS activity.
We are seeking a Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor to join our team. The primary purpose of the role is to advise on safeguarding issues, cases and incidents, ensuring that all advice is in line with the law, government guidance and the Church of England safeguarding policies and practice guidance.
The role is a busy and varied one, in which every day is different. It is for 28 hours per week with some out of hours support and will require travelling around the diocese to support parishes and their teams.
Our salaries are competitive within the charity sector with a generous non-contributory pension provision. Due to the Covid pandemic, we are currently able to work remotely from the safety of our own homes, but once we are able to return, we have an attractive, open-plan office and surroundings at Church House Guildford (with free parking available).
If you have extensive safeguarding experience and a passion to join us in our journey to promote a safe environment for all, we would like to hear from you. Your application should consist of a completed application form and supporting statement (no more than two sides of A4) detailing your reasons for interest, what you can bring to the post and how you meet its requirements. The closing date for receipt of applications is Sunday 12 July 2020, midnight.
We look forward to hearing from you!
