Chair
Independent Safeguarding Board for the Church of England
3 days a week
Competitive Day rate

The safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults should be at the very heart of the life of the Church of England, reflecting the values of the Christian gospel and expressing the compassion and love of God for human beings who are made in his image – and yet we know that all too often this has not been the case in the history of the Church and in the experience of victims and survivors of abuse.

The Church is committed to ensuring greater independent oversight of the Church’s safeguarding work, to ensure greater transparency and accountability at every level. The purpose of the Independent Safeguarding Board will be to help provide that kind of oversight and accountability.

We are looking for people with the experience, skills, courage and determination to hold the Church to account for its work in safeguarding, and to help drive deep and long-lasting change in the culture, policies and practice of the Church of England in this vital area.

Closing date 11:59pm Sunday 20 June 2021
