The responsibilities of the role will include:
- Maintaining a good understanding of safeguarding legislation, regulations and good practice.
- Developing and implementing procedures to ensure all legislation and regulations are adhered to, investigating and reporting any non-compliance and taking remedial action.
- Overall responsibility for the Chaperones working at the Royal Opera House.
- Delivering and implementing training and induction for managers, staff and Chaperones to ensure safeguarding compliance and implementation of the Safeguarding Policy.
- Acting as a source of advice, support and expertise to staff members on safeguarding, and deciding whether to make a referral in liaison with relevant agencies.
The successful candidate will demonstrate:
- Experience in Safeguarding in an arts, charity or education environment.
- An in-depth understanding of relevant safeguarding legislation and its application to the Royal Opera House’s business environment.
- Ability to lead a team of chaperones effectively in a fast-moving business area and supervise the team.
