This is an exciting time for Redbridge as we are seeking experienced Screening Officer.
MASH: The Redbridge Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) has been operational since 2014. It was judged as outstanding in the 2016 Ofsted inspection and described as a “model of excellence” in the 2019 Ofsted inspection. The MASH service has worked hard to embed a reflective and learning culture in what is a busy and fast paced environment. The referrals feature traumatic child and domestic abuse so candidates must be resilient to reading this material daily. The MASH operates a high level of performance with rigorous management oversight and support. The Screening officer role is the first point of call in the MASH taking calls from the public and professionals and offering advice and guidance. The role entails loading referrals from the police, schools and health and feeding back to agencies the outcome of those referrals. Screening Officers also undertake tasks such as CAFCASS checks and letters to service users. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a thriving and highly supportive working environment. We have a wealth of training opportunities to develop your professional pathway and you will receive monthly supervision and a performance management review.
This is a full time, permanent position.
