Contract type: Permanent (Fixed term funded post)

End date: 31st March 2023

Hours: 36.25

Salary: £43,096.99 - £59,303 Plus £312 office at home allowance

Closing Date: 10 June 2022

Interview Date: 27th June 2022

This is an exciting opportunity to join the friendly, dynamic, multi-disciplinary team at the Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse (CSA Centre) as a Practice Improvement Advisor.  This is a high level practice improvement role focussed on developing, managing and delivering projects and strategies to improve the practice response to child sexual abuse across England and Wales.  

About role:

The Practice Improvement Advisor is responsible for developing and embedding evidence-informed practice improvement initiatives in the field of child sexual abuse across agencies in England and Wales.  The post-holder will lead the formulation, development and implementation of transformational change in response to child sexual abuse, by developing, managing and delivering strategies, plans and training initiatives, and managing partner relationships at a high level

Working within our team of multi-agency practitioners, researchers and policy advisors, and in liaison with those with lived experience of sexual abuse, you will be supporting the CSA Centre to deliver an ambitious work plan rooted in our commitment to improving the knowledge, skills and confidence of professionals in identifying and responding to child sexual abuse in order to:

  • Increase the priority given to child sexual abuse by improving understanding throughout organisations of its scale and nature, and of trends in current service responses;
  • Drive systemic improvements to the identification of and response to child sexual abuse across the multi-agency workforce, with a core focus on better meeting the needs of children and families;
  • Improve understanding of and responses to all forms of child sexual abuse, including specific aspects such as in online settings, within family law and for black, Asian and minority ethnic children and families, through partnership work with other sector experts

We are looking for a highly motivated and committed individual who has specialist knowledge in the field of child sexual abuse, a demonstrable record of developing practice responses, and a sound understanding of the multi-agency landscape.

This role is currently funded until 31 March 2023, in line with the grant funding arrangements for the CSA Centre. This will be reviewed in late 2022, with potential for extension as future funding for the CSA Centre from 2023/24 onwards is clarified.

About us

We are the Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse (the CSA Centre). Our aim is to create a future where children are free from the threat and harm of sexual abuse by radically improving how we prevent and respond to the issue through really understanding its causes, scope, scale and impact.

Funded by the Home Office and hosted by Barnardo's, we are independent and will challenge any barriers, assumptions, taboos and ways of working that prevent us from increasing our understanding and improving our approach to tackling child sexual abuse.

We bring about change by:

  • Collating and analysing existing research, policy, practice and the real experiences of those affected, and filling the gaps we identify with new research, insights and analysis;
  • Using that evidence and insight to challenge and improve existing policy and practice, develop new approaches and increase everyone's knowledge and confidence to more effectively tackle the issue. 

This role is home based with regular travel required, usually to London.
