An exciting and rewarding opportunity has arisen to join the College’s Safeguarding Team on a temporary basis to cover maternity leave. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to support students where specific safeguarding, prevent or child protection issues have been identified. To ensure students are protected from harm or abuse, this high profile role will require you to work in collaboration with a range of external agencies such as mental health services, Schools, Children’s Social Work Services, Adult Social Work Services, the Police, Youth Offending Services, Probation and HM Prison Services.
The successful candidate will be an energetic and enthusiastic person who has the ability to be understanding, responsive, calm, supportive and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all students. You will also be self-driven, proactive and have the ability to manage a caseload of students with serious safeguarding concerns.
Candidates should have a Level 3 qualification or equivalent (ideally in Health and Social Care or Advice and Guidance) and must have completed or be willing to complete the Level 2 Safeguarding training for designated staff and undertake any relevant training associated with the post. Experience in Social Work and familiarity with early help plans and the Prevent Duty is desirable.
In return we offer an excellent benefits package which, for this post, includes an excellent pension scheme, opportunities for flexible working and access to training and development.
