Safeguarding Advisor

Peterborough, circa £35,000 per annum

Are you passionate about international development and safeguarding?  Do you want to use your skills to support sustainable programmes helping marginalised people in Asia and Africa, creating a safe space for our staff, volunteers and the communities in which we work?

The Leprosy Mission England and Wales (TLMEW) is a leading international Christian development organisation with over 140 years’ experience and is part of the TLM worldwide family. TLMEW is active in 10 countries with more than 50 projects addressing the causes and consequences of leprosy, ranging from health and livelihoods to advocacy, water and sanitation. TLMEW has a zero tolerence approach to any harm to, or exploitation of, our beneficiaries, staff and communities we come into contact with.  Recruitment to roles within TLMEW includes, in particular, criminal record checks and the collection of relevant references.  A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from joining us as an employee; this will depend on the circumstances of any offences. Safeguarding is our top priority in everything we do. 

You will have a passion for safeguarding, be self-motivated with excellent cross-cultural communication skills and a keen desire to proactively influence and coach others.  You will have experience of working with children or vulnerable adults with direct responsibility for safeguarding or have worked in the field of mental health, preferably in an INGO setting.  In addition a relevant degree or professional qualification in either Safeguarding, Development, Global Health, Mental Health, Education, Child Development or equivalent work experience.  

Along with other members of the Programmes Team and Country Leaders, you will be responsible for the safeguarding aspects of UK-funded programmes, supporting the capacity development of overseas partners.  In addition, you will champion TLMEW’s work on safeguarding/Inner wellbeing and engage in external INGO safeguarding forums.  You will be required to travel overseas for up to 20 weeks per year, to undertake capacity building training and provide advice to field partners.  The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure and declare all criminal convictions.  Empathy with the Christian ethos of the organisation is essential.
