We are excited to offer an opportunity for the right person to join our team and make a real impact as National Safeguarding Administrator.

In partnership with The FA and other County Football Associations nationally, West Riding FA is looking to appoint an enthusiastic, driven and highly organised individual to join our newly formed ‘Safeguarding Shared Service Team’ to collectively provide administrative support to County Football Associations in ensuring compliance with safeguarding measures in grassroots football.

The job holder will have a national remit focusing on assisting Designated Safeguarding Officers (DSO) to deliver specified safeguarding services for County FAs, in line with The FA Safeguarding 365 Standard for CFAs, legislation, FA safeguarding policy, procedures, regulations, and guidance. The job holder will also work on behalf of The FA to produce monthly reports for all County FAs and report to the Safeguarding 365 Project Team.

The job holder will ensure the highest standards of customer service and process management which will be pivotal to us achieving our national objective of full compliance with Safeguarding measures.

This fantastic opportunity is one of two Safeguarding Administrators both reporting directly to the National Safeguarding Officer and offers the right candidate the chance to drive a culture of excellent customer engagement through successful management of safeguarding compliance measures.

You must be able to work under pressure, handle multiple priorities and meet deadlines. You will also have experience of establishing and ensuring compliance with processes.
