This is a highly rewarding role within a friendly, supportive and hardworking team which is committed to keeping children safe from sexual harm.

This role will head up our primary prevention work. This will include delivering training and awareness raising events to members of the public as well as training to professionals in relation to the prevention of child sexual abuse. This will also include engagement with child facing organisations to help them pivot child protection to include actions that prevent the abuse of children before it happens.

The Prevention Manager will also contribute to clinical provision of services within Stop It Now! Scotland where appropriate.

You will be able to evidence a successful track record of working with individuals and families impacted by child sexual abuse. You will be able to demonstrate confidence in translating the organisation’s mission into direct child protection practice and equipping other professionals in tackling child sexual abuse. You will have experience of delivering training and providing clear advice to individuals and organisations in identifying risk and protective factors in particular situations and promoting safety for children.

This role will involve showing leadership in the field and will require considerable networking skills. An ability to shift the discourse about child sexual abuse ‘upstream’ so that professionals and the public understand in practical terms what they can do to prevent sexual abuse before it happens will be vital. The successful candidate will need to be a good communicator who is committed to the concept of child sexual abuse as a preventable public health issue.
