The safeguarding children team has an exciting opportunity for a band 6 safeguarding nurse to join the team for a 12 month period commencing April 2021.

The successful post-holder will be responsible for working in the Oxfordshire Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) to analyse a wide range of health information and support decision-making around vulnerable children and young people.

We are looking for a registered nurse with at least 2 years community experience, and evidence of working with vulnerable families.

You must have a passion for safeguarding children, experience of multi-agency working, sound decision making skills and a good knowledge of health IT systems.

This would be an ideal development opportunity for someone wishing to gain experience in safeguarding.

The post is for 18.75 hours per week. Fixed term for 12 months. Possible secondment opportunity. Working pattern can be discussed but must include a Friday.

Due to Covid restrictions the MASH is currently working on a virtual basis, and the post holder would initially be based at East Oxford Health Centre.

There will be an expectation of some time being spent at the MASH office at Cowley police station. This is accessible via 3 flights of stairs and there is no lift, so applicants should be aware of this.
