Deputy Safeguarding Officer

Mersey Rose Recreationals Cricket Club is seeking a Deputy Safeguarding Officer.

The Safeguarding Officer is one of the most vital roles at the club. Safeguarding Officers ensure the safeguarding and protecting of children and young people in cricket and help to implement the ECB ‘Safe Hands Policy’ and procedures. They also promote good safeguarding practice within their club, ensure club volunteers and staff are appropriately vetted and act on any reported safeguarding concerns.

 

We are looking to appoint a Deputy Safeguarding Officer to support the Safeguarding Officer in these responsibilities. The Deputy Safeguarding Officer will also serve as a point of contact when the Safeguarding Officer is absent for any reason.

The Deputy Safeguarding Officer is not required to serve as a committee member but is entitled to attend committee meetings.

The role is voluntary but reasonable expenses incurred in the course of carrying out the role can be claimed..

Previous experience in a similar role, a knowledge of Statutory Agencies and awareness of safeguarding policies is advantageous. However, training will be provided for the right person in accordance with ECB guidance.

 

Contact: Interested parties should contact club secretary Anna Page at merseyroserecs@gmail.com
