Principal Exploitation Reduction Officer ~ CH10518
Salary: G13 £46,408 - £50905 per annum

Walsall Children’s Services are looking to appoint an experienced manager to take forward our exploitation reduction agenda. We have a well-developed process to child sexual exploitation as part of the wider West Midlands regional approach but recognise this is just one element of the ways in which children can be exploited. We are therefore looking to develop our practice and response to other forms of exploitation.

The successful candidate will have previous experience in this field and strong experience of a solution based approach to working across and within statutory and voluntary sector partnerships.

For this role the successful candidates must undergo a Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) check.  BPSS is the minimum standard to ensure the identity and integrity of an employee who has access to official information using secure networks linking central government and local authorities.  A BPSS check involves four main elements; Identity Check, National and Immigration Status, Employment History (last 3 years) and Verification of Criminal Record (unspent convictions only).

This post is covered by the Government’s Code of Practice on the English Language Fluency Duty for public sector workers.  The postholder will be required to communicate verbally with customers and provide advice and/or information in accurate spoken English

Walsall Council takes seriously the responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all the children and young people entrusted to our care and it is our expectation that all staff will share this commitment. We will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust recruitment processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our workforce. Completion of an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is a requirement for working with children and young people.

Closing date for applications: Friday 4 May 2018
