Fixed term contract up to end of April 2021
Working alongside and reporting to the Safeguarding Lead, this newly created role will support the implementation of our safeguarding framework across MAG International, ensuring we are not just compliant, but exceeding our safeguarding standards.
We’re looking for a proactive and solution orientated candidate who brings experience of working in a safeguarding position, preferably in an international NGO or charity setting. You will have experience of identifying and mitigating risks, conducting investigations and resolving safeguarding issues.
You will be expected to work across multiple global teams and functions, providing expert advice and guidance. This will require excellent stakeholder engagement skills with the ability to develop strong working relationships with colleagues around the world. Excellent interpersonal skills will be essential including proven experience of influencing decision makers at all levels.
You will also have previous experience of supporting, designing and delivering internal training that will help develop confidence and competence within the organisation to raise awareness of safeguarding and support with case management.
You will occasionally be required to travel to support our programmes overseas.
The place of work will normally be our headquarters in Manchester. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and to ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone who works for MAG and their families, we have put in place a new working arrangement – remote working from home – to reflect what is a rapidly changing situation. Therefore, you will initially be home-based until we are able to return to working in our headquarters.
MAG is committed to the principles of diversity, equality and inclusion. If you think you would be suited to one of our roles we would welcome your application regardless of your background. We strive to provide an inclusive and supportive working environment where all employees feel respected and supported in fulfilling their potential.
Please note that as part of MAG's commitment to safeguarding, this post is subject to background checks before an offer of employment is confirmed.
