We are looking to appoint a part-time Safeguarding Trainer to work as part of the Diocesan Safeguarding team, to co-ordinate and deliver safeguarding training to requisite groups across the diocese in line with Church of England policy and practice guidance.

A clear, enhanced DBS check is required for this role.

Closing date for this post will be 12th June 2019.

Interviews will be held on the 21st June 2019 at the Diocesan Offices, Peninsular House, Wharf Road, Portsmouth, PO2 8HB.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Trainer will ensure the Diocese maintains the highest standards of training delivery by working closely with the diocesan safeguarding adviser in the development, design and delivery of the diocesan safeguarding training programme.

The post holder will be required to deliver a diverse range of training courses to staff and volunteers, and must be able to work independently and flexibly, as the role involves travel across the diocese and evening and weekend working. For this reason, own transport is essential.

The successful candidate will have experience of working in a large organisation with vulnerable individuals (children, young people and/or adults), as well as an understanding of national and local influences relating to safeguarding.

Please see attached role description and person spec for further details.

Our diocese is made up of 11,000 or so worshippers in 139 Church of England parishes across south-east Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It is led by our Bishop, and includes clergy, Readers, retired clergy, chaplains, paid staff and thousands of volunteers who work in our parishes.

Our diocese is also divided into seven deaneries, each of which co-ordinates the mission and ministry of parishes in their area.

Further information about the diocese can be found at : www.portsmouth.anglican.org

We have a framework to envision our diocese in the future - and it can be summed up in just three words:

live | pray | serve will be our guide for the future, as we seek to equip people to live as disciples of Christ; to pray, individually and together as worshipping communities; and to serve our local neighbourhoods and society together.

To achieve this, we will encourage and support our parishes, chaplaincies and church schools as they aim to:

  • make disciples of Christ;
  • grow our churches;
  • equip people for lifelong learning; and
  • promote the transformation of society.

These four strands embrace all the work covered by our central diocesan teams, but are also picked up through engagement with individual worshippers and in local parishes, communities, chaplaincies, and schools.
