We’re seeking an enthusiastic, suitably qualified Independent Chair that understands the Care Act 2014 as the most significant reform of adult care and support in more than 60 years, and for the first time Safeguarding Adults Boards (SAB) will be placed on a statutory footing.

 

We will be looking for you to provide effective leadership and critical challenge to members of the Board, to help us drive forward safeguarding adult’s developments in a way that balances our duties to safeguard people, with the rights of people to take positive risks about their own lives and listening to the lessons learned to inform change and practice in Bexley.

 

You will work in partnership with our statutory partners across the Bexley Safeguarding Adults Board - London Borough of Bexley, South East London BCU (Police) and Bexley CCG.

 

To be considered for this post you will need to have a professional qualification in one of the core disciplines represented on the SAB, at least 5 years post qualifying experience in safeguarding adults, and 5 years’ experience of chairing complex professional meetings.

 

You will need a good knowledge of the National and London SAB’s agenda and be current with legislation for adults at risk and research underpinning safeguarding work is essential. This post will be subject to two reference checks and an enhanced safeguarding adult and children disclosure from the DBS.

 

Applicants must be independent of all organisations represented on the boards – for more information on BSAB visit our website – www.safeguardingadultsinbexley.com

 

If you wish to discuss the position, please contact Anita Eader, BSAB Practice Review & Learning Manager or Michael Boyce, Vice Chair for the BSAB and Chief Operating Officer, Bexley CCG at bsab@bexley.gov.uk

 

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

The appropriate standards are set out in the JD/Person Specification. These will be applied during the recruitment/selection and probationary stages.
