Strategic Partnerships Lead for Safeguarding Adults
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up.
Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
This is an exciting time to be joining us at Brent. Like many other councils we face immense challenges. Critical to resolving those challenges and realising our vision of Brent as a place of choice for residents, workers and businesses is working with our ambitious partners.
The new role of Strategic Partnerships Lead for Safeguarding Adults will be integral to us achieving our aims with our partners.
Reporting to the Strategic Partnerships Manager, you will be working closely with a corporate team of officers, elected members, senior officers and partners, and members of the community to provide lead support to Brent’s ambitious Safeguarding Adults Board and Brent Disability Forum.
We are looking for someone who is ambitious, flexible and collaborative, who can confidently interact with officers and elected members at all levels. With proven experience of influencing, communicating and partnership working, you will need to be a strategic thinker with a ‘can do’ approach.
You will also bring knowledge and understanding of the adult safeguarding agenda and the strategic role and responsibilities of Safeguarding Adults Boards.
