About the Role
Child Protection Secretaries provide note taking support to Child Protection conferences and other highly confidential meetings at a variety of locations within Surrey.
Your objective is to provide a clear, concise, accurate and timely record of the confidential meetings you attend; and to produce reports within the timescales laid down by the Surrey Safeguarding Children Board procedure. You will need to prepare for the meetings, reading background information so that you can accurately interpret the events, send follow up correspondence and collate all contributions to the conference outcome report.
Extremely organised and experienced in taking complex minutes, you will have the flexibility and discipline to manage a varied workload and meet tight deadlines. Background experience is not as important as a positive attitude, note taking skills recording directly onto laptop and the ability to maintain composure to record details of difficult meetings.
You will need to have a full driving licence and use of a car.
You will be given a comprehensive induction to introduce you to this specialised and highly confidential area of work. Equipment is provided and travel costs reimbursed, as you'll need to travel to venues throughout the county.
The job advert closes at 23:59 on 2nd July 2017.
Please note, if access to the GCSX (PSN) network is required for this role, a Basic Disclosure (DBS check) will be required to meet the Government Baseline Personnel Security Standards.
Surrey County Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We want to be an inclusive and diverse employer of first choice reflecting the community we serve and particularly welcome applications from all under represented groups.
