Content “About the Role”

The Safeguarding Board continues to evolve, in 2019 following on from the Safeguarding Act, the Safeguarding Board sat for the first time, becoming the first Statutory Joint Board within the British Isles. We are looking for someone with demonstrable and proven strategic experience who can continue to help us to strengthen partnership working across all agencies and enable partners to hold each other to account.
The Safeguarding Act 2018 created:

• a single safeguarding board for children and vulnerable adults
• a duty to safeguard
• a duty to collaborate

This is a key part of our Programme for Government to create an inclusive and caring society. We are keen to appoint someone who can make a significant contribution to our work in this field.

The Isle of Man is an internally self-governing dependency of the British Crown. The Isle of Man is responsible for setting its own policy, legislation and finances. It is not, and never has been, part of the United Kingdom, nor is it part of the European Union. It is not represented at Westminster or in Brussels.

Applicants should be experienced and knowledgeable in safeguarding and protection work at a senior level and will possess the ability to lead, influence and motivate others. Experience and understanding of the safeguarding context in a Crown Dependency such as the Isle of Man is desirable.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right individual to make a real difference to the lives of children and vulnerable adults in the Isle of Man.
The Independent Chair of the Board is directly accountable to the Chief Secretary.
