The Safeguarding and Quality Assurance Service are looking for a first class administrator to work within a team of administrators supporting Child Protection Chairs/Independent Reviewing Officers. As part of this team you will be party to confidential and sensitive information about children, their families and carers. You will be responsible for Convening and Minute Taking Child Protection Conferences and Children in Care Reviews.

Previous experience of minute taking in high level complex conferences/meetings is essential as are good organisational skills, flexibility and the ability to prioritise and work independently to strict deadlines.

The successful candidates must be able to demonstrate high level communication skills (both written and verbal) in order to effectively interact with colleagues, professionals, families and external agencies.

A good working knowledge of Windows & Microsoft packages (including Word, Excel, Outlook & MS365) is essential. Previous experience of using the Children’s Trust data software, CareFirst and CareStore, would be desirable but not essential as training will be given.

Proven experience in a similar role is essential, as well as having a current driving licence and use of your own transport as this role involves travel around the county for which mileage is payable.

You should be able to work well under pressure and be able to cope with the emotional impact that the material discussed at conferences may have (support within the team is available should you feel you need it), as well as being able to work with absolute discretion and confidentiality in line with GDPR.

You may from time to time be asked to cover other administration functions to ensure business continuity across all areas of the service.

You will be based at One Angel Square in Northampton Town Centre.
