Recruitment launched for Independent Chair of Liverpool Safeguarding Children Partnership

Published on

A search is under way for an Independent Chair for Liverpool Safeguarding Children Partnership.

The position will be a key role in ensuring that local multi-agency safeguarding arrangements for young people operate effectively.

We are looking far and wide to find the best candidate and would appreciate your assistance in sharing details of this role with your channels and networks.

The appointed person will provide assurance and scrutiny that all relevant organisations and agencies co-operate to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and young people in Liverpool and they will review serious child safeguarding cases.

The aim of the role is to ensure scrutiny is objective, acts as a constructive critical friend and promotes reflection to drive continuous improvement.

The creation of the role follows a review to strengthen the approach to child safeguarding by moving to a best practice model. Currently, the role of Chair alternates between the three lead agencies – Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and the NHS.

The Chair will be expected to work between 40-50 days per year for a period of up to four years, with costs shared among the lead agencies.

Cabinet Member for Liverpool City Council’s Children’s Social Services, Cllr Liz Parsons, said: “This is a really important role and is designed to make sure our child safeguarding arrangements are as effective as they possibly can be.

“A huge amount of effort goes into keeping young people in Liverpool safe, but continuous learning to improve the practice, working and sharing of information between different organisations is absolutely vital.

“We want to recruit an exceptional individual with extensive knowledge and experience in safeguarding, who will have the skills to act as a critical friend to the organisations involved in safeguarding our young people.”
