Principal Exploitation Reduction Officer – Ref: CH20519
£48,284 - £52,962 per annum
Walsall Children: Safe, Happy and Learning Well
- Are you passionate about protecting children who are exposed to criminal and sexual exploitation and are being trafficked, and those at risk of serious youth violence because of this ?
- Have you proven experience in working with partner agencies to reduce exploitation through disruption and prevention work ?
If so, we would like to hear from you!
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 address child sexual exploitation as part of a 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 post holder 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.
