The Kirklees Safeguarding Adults Board is seeking to recruit a dynamic, experienced and motivated individual to join our organisation as Board Support Manager.

The post holder will provide an efficient, effective and comprehensive senior level support service to the Kirklees Safeguarding Adults Board undertaking a range of delegated administrative responsibilities, to include the organising, attendance and minute taking of Board and Sub Group meetings

Kirklees Safeguarding Adults Board (KSAB) brings together the main organisations working with Adults at risk including the Local Authority, West Yorkshire Police and Health Agencies.

The Board has overall governance of the policy, practice and implementation for Safeguarding. The Board has a key role in promoting the safeguarding agenda so that safeguarding is a responsibility for everyone.  Safeguarding Adults means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about working together to support people to make decisions about the risks they face in their own lives, and protecting those who lack the mental capacity to make these decisions.

Main duties of the post:

  • Provide clerical support for the KSAB and sub group meetings as required, including taking minutes/notes, ensuring agendas and supporting papers are distributed and ensuring action plans are monitored and reported on;
  • Operate and maintain the KSAB’s office filing / recording systems and implement an effective “brought forward” system that enables outstanding items to be followed up and completed;
  • To monitor changes in legislation and guidance as well as other national and local developments relative to inter-agency working in safeguarding and provide information briefings on these;
  • To support the development of effective use of data and information for the KSAB.
  • To undertake project work as required, including co-ordination of KSAB strategic plan actions, conferences, workshops, learning events and community events for example: supporting with audits, reviews of training and competency frameworks;
  • To support the chair, board managers and statutory partners to review annually the KSAB’s strategic plan and produce an annual report;
  • To support work to ensure Safeguarding Policies and Procedures are updated and in accordance with national policy developments, legislation and good practice;
  • To support the board manager and sub group in coordinating the process of safeguarding adults reviews;
  • To ensure that the KSAB website is maintained and updated on a regular basis
  • Support communication amongst the KSAB partner agencies and between the KSAB and the public, including the use of social media and creating briefings and newsletters
  • Whilst the post currently does not line manage staff this may change depending on the needs of the service

It is essential the post holder undertakes the extensive duties with flexibility, initiative and enthusiasm and operates as an integral part of the safeguarding adults partnership team.
