Would you like to join a team of professional advisors supporting RBL staff and volunteers across the organisation to recognise and respond to safeguarding concerns?

RBL are looking for a Safeguarding professional with direct experience dealing with at risk adults and children. RBL Safeguarding Advisors are subject matter experts providing advice and guidance on a range of safeguarding concerns. The team supports a network of Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) across welfare, fundraising and membership.

RBL receives thousands of calls for support every year from military veterans or their families. We operate 6 care homes and deliver support to those people living with dementia through our Admiral Nursing service. We also support the Invictus Games, have 165,000 members, almost 4000 Poppy Appeal Organisers and many thousands of Poppy Appeal volunteers.

Come and be part of the leading Armed Forces charity, making a difference to the lives of those who have served to keep us safe and protect our way of life.

Are you able to support and advise the staff, volunteers and members who deliver our services to recognise and respond to safeguarding concerns? Can you shift your focus from on demand operational advice giving to devise and deliver training, support service delivery through data led insights and provide quality assured reports and returns?

Safeguarding Advisors:

  • Provide “on demand” operational advice
  • Support welfare teams and specialists to liaise with statutory agencies
  • Design and deliver training
  • Provide insight led data to support service development and delivery

You will be expected to travel regularly in the course of your work. You will be contracted to your home address, where you will be expected to work – using our collaboration tools – when not travelling.

Here at RBL, we aim to support our people and their wellbeing, with a package including generous paid holiday allowance and pension scheme contributions, and a range of optional benefits and discounts.

For more detailed information about the role, please see our Vacancy Information Pack attached to our direct advert.

RBL is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive organisation, reflecting the diversity of the armed forces community and of wider society. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and personal characteristics and aim to operate an inclusive recruitment process.
