Job Vacancy: Safeguarding Officer

Published on 16th Aug, 2020

Safeguarding Advisor – 20 hours a week

The Diocese of Palmerston North is looking to employ a safeguarding advisor to work with the diocesan leadership, parishes and other church-based groups to ensure policies and processes adhere to the approved National Safeguarding Guidelines and other national policy. The Safeguarding Advisor will need good communication and administration skills, and will be responsible for arranging the National Office for Professional Standards (NOPS) training workshops for priests, religious and staff within the diocese. The ability to facilitate these training sessions, while not essential, would be an added advantage.

The Diocese of Palmerston North includes communities in a large region stretching from the northern reaches of Hawke’s Bay in the east, under the shadow of Mt Ruapehu to Waitara on the west, encompassing Hawke’s Bay, Whanganui, and Taranaki regions following the coast down to Foxton across to Manawatu and Tararua and some of Wairarapa; the diocese is as diverse in geography as its people.
