Organisation Canoe Wales
Hours of Work 2-3 meetings per year
Salary & Benefits Voluntary with all expenses paid
Closing Date 01 February
Canoe Wales is looking to extend the current range of expertise on our Safeguarding Case Management Group (CMG) by appointing up to three new members to the group. The CMG's role is to provide advice and guidance in relation to safeguarding concerns, cases and adverse DBS disclosures. Members of the CMG are required to consider all the available evidence and make fair, considered, proportionate, and defensible decisions with regard to the management of a safeguarding concern.
The appointment of new members will seek to ensure that appropriate knowledge, experience and perspectives from a wide range of sectors informs and strengthens the group's discussions and decision-making process.
We are currently seeking new members who can provide expertise from the following sectors: youth/social work, law, education or coaching/sport management. The ideal candidate should have a passion for the safety and wellbeing of children, young people and adults at risk; understanding and knowledge of the sport or voluntary sector; and experience in responding to and managing safeguarding concerns. Candidates do not need specialist knowledge of paddlesport although applicants with considerable experience within the sport will also be welcomed as a “sport specific” member of the group.
Volunteers must be in a position to attend meetings as required (3-4 times per year, normally 1-2 hours with the possibility of attending via videoconference if required) and to respond to electronic communication and case information within a short time frame. Whilst this is not a role with a significant time commitment, the time required may vary significantly throughout the year depending on the nature and volume of concerns received by the group.
This is a voluntary position and no remuneration will be paid for carrying out these duties, although all reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
