The Lambeth Safeguarding Adults Unit is responsible for setting the standards across the Council and Safeguarding Board for assessing and reducing the risk towards adults in need of protection.
As a key member of this newly constituted team, you will not be required to undertake any case holding, instead you will play a frontline role in advocating and advising on the protection of vulnerable adults within Lambeth. You will be involved in overseeing and monitoring activity undertaken by key staff from a range of statutory and voluntary agencies across the borough.
You will also play a significant part in supporting the implementation of monitoring policy and practice on a multi-agency basis, including the application of the Government driven ‘No Secrets’ policy.
With a social care qualification, supported by substantial experience gained at a senior level, you will be both capable and confident of managing others, whilst playing an active part in a team. This will be combined with a natural drive and passion to truly protect and improve the lives of adults at risk.
All successful applicants will require Enhanced CRB clearance.
