Malcolm Nicholson will soon be stepping down from the role of Safeguarding Officer due to new work commitments. I would like to thank Malcolm for his efforts and professionalism during his time in the team and wish him every success in his new job. This position is designated as a ‘Golden Role’ by the RFU and leaves a significant gap in our compliance team that needs to be filled as soon as possible. Ideally, therefore we are looking for someone who has experience in a safeguarding setting to bring his or her knowledge to the role. This could be from any of the statutory agencies, education or other industry sector (such as social care) where safeguarding is a concern for either children or vulnerable adults. Is this role for you? If you have a background in child protection from any of the statutory agencies with the ability to be objective, approachable and empathetic, a strong attention to detail and a dedication to the cause of safeguarding vulnerable or young people under 18 years old, you could hold a highly respected and very important role within the club. If you think that this role is for you or you would like to know more about the role please contact Darren Springhall (Honorary Secretary) via email email@example.com or via WhatsApp or SMS using 07867 644914.
