Northamptonshire FA is inviting applications for the position of Designated Safeguarding Officer.

Safeguarding is an ever-present priority for football and the DSO plays a pivotal role in ensuring that football is played in a safe and enjoyable environment.

Reporting directly to the Business Manager, the successful applicant will be required to demonstrate knowledge of safeguarding and child protection, a working knowledge of the safeguarding legislation and the Government`s Working Together Guidance.

Experience of collating sensitive and detailed information and compiling written reports and statements will be essential. An understanding of the culture and structure of football, and/or working with volunteers would be beneficial, but not essential for the role.

You will work very much as part of a team focussed on safeguarding. You will be expected to be able to work under pressure, handle multiple priorities and meet deadlines. It is important that you have excellent interpersonal skills and that you have the ability to positively influence at all levels.

Whilst the role is office based you will be required to have a flexible approach to hours worked, as these might include weekend and possibly unsocial hours.

You should be in possession of a valid and current driving licence.
