This is a unique and exciting role that will lead the evolution of a national safeguarding hub for the youth sector. Join us in our mission to enable the highest quality safe and effective practice across services for young people.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced manager who is a qualified Social Worker registered with Social Work England to evolve the Hub into an exceptional safeguarding platform.

The post of Safeguarding Hub Manager will work with a diverse steering group of youth sector and safeguarding experts to develop tools and support services that will provide bespoke guidance and/or advice for practitioners. We are looking for someone who has the experience, knowledge and capabilities to provide bespoke support and advice to sector colleagues, as well as create and deliver proactive assets such as training and guidance documents.

A combination of your expertise, the assets available on the Hub and the NYA’s youth work expertise will be instrumental in informing the safe culture for young people services across the country.

NYA holds a unique position within the youth sector. We are the national body for youth work, and the Professional Statutory Regulatory Body (PSRB) for youth work in England. We are the cornerstone of a great profession and we have been transforming lives through youth work for over 50 years. We strive every day to champion, professionalise and enable great youth work, driving up the quality and quantity of safe and impactful practice.

If you feel as motivated as we do to empower young people to reach their potential and find the path to the positive and fulfilling futures they all deserve, then we would love to hear from you.

We are committed to inclusivity and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. To reflect the communities we serve, we strive to bring different backgrounds, cultures, age, experience and identity to enrich our insights and power the work we do together.

We welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in our organisation including Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups.

At NYA we operate as a people first organisation, with a flexible working approach that helps us balance our work with life. We are a predominately remotely based team across England with a head office in Leicester. Despite the geographical distance between us, our digital use, shared focus and supportive culture make us a highly connected team. We also provide committed time and funds to support personal and professional development.

We provide 25 days leave plus 8 days, life assurance scheme and 5% NYA pension contribution.
