Job Description

The City and Hackney Safeguarding Children Partnership is currently recruiting for the role of Training Co-ordinator. The multi-agency training programme is probably the most visible of the many functions of the CHSCP and as such the job is demanding – it requires attention to detail, flexibility and the ability to multi-task, alongside excellent administrative, organisational and minute-taking skills.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to join a small, but busy and high functioning team. You will be required to provide administrative support to assigned CHSCP Sub / Task Groups and be responsible for the efficient delivery of the multi-agency safeguarding training programme and its evaluation framework. The CHSCP will look to you to provide them with briefings and data from which they can evaluate the impact of particular courses. The Training Co-ordinator will also support the implementation of the Graded Care Profile 2 across the Partnership.

You should be able to demonstrate the ability to keep a clear head under pressure and be able to use a variety of software to an advanced level.

You will need an awareness of the agenda around safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and prior experience within the statutory sector will be useful while not essential. Beyond this, you will need to be able to demonstrate exceptional communication skills. The successful candidate should be able to hit the ground running after a comprehensive induction.

Whilst working from home at present, the role is ordinarily based in Hackney and would require occasional travel to the City of London.

An enhanced DBS is required for this role.
