CUTTING EDGE TRAINING COMPANY

BUILD YOUR CAREER WITH ONE OF THE UK’S LEADING SAFEGUARDING PROVIDERS

CURRENT VACANCIES


We are proud to have a very dedicated and professional team. We are expanding and have the following vacancies available. Please get in touch if you think you could join our team by completing the 'Get in Touch' form at the bottom of this page.


We would very much like to hear from you. If you’re interested, please complete the ‘Contact Form’ below expressing an interest in finding out more about this role and we’ll be in touch within 2 working days.

Rather than refer you to a Job Description, we thought we would identify some of the questions we would ask if we were applying for this role (you’ll probably ask the same questions) and in asking the questions, provide answers.


WHAT DOES THE ROLE INVOLVE?

You will be instrumental in reviewing and then reconfiguring the administration systems currently in place. As well as managing these, you will be expected to take a key role in their establishment.

Whilst managing the function is important, you will also be expected to take a hands-on approach to getting things done. Initially at least the administration function will be just you and you’ll be expected to undertake the unglamorous but essential back office tasks that make an organisation tick.

The other key element of the role is being the voice of ECP. When clients call, you will be their first point of contact. First impressions matter and you’ll be expected to project the right image of ECP to the people you speak with.


WHAT PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WILL I BE EXPECTED TO HAVE?

You will have previously worked in a client focussed administrative role, but not necessarily leading a function, where the importance of managing relationships is understood and in your DNA.

In a previous role(s) you will have worked with databases, finance systems and understand how content management systems operate, as website management will be your responsibility. Don’t worry, we mean liaising with our web development team, not coding!!

Previous experience of working in a marketing environment would certainly be advantageous as part of your role will involve determining, and then actioning, the best way/s to promote ECP.

An interest in safeguarding issues would definitely be an advantage.


WHAT SKILLS WOULD YOU EXPECT ME TO HAVE?

The confidence and ability to think on your feet, see problems as an opportunity to find a solution and demonstrate a “can do” attitude at all times.

And you’ll understand the importance of accountability. You will be the “go to” person within ECP for all administration (and related – which can mean anything) matters.

We would expect you to be familiar with Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Whilst not directly a skill, we would expect you to be committed to your CPD.


WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE ALL THE EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS YOU REQUIRE?

For us that’s not an issue, with 1:1 mentoring we can work with you in the areas where you may think that your experience and skills need to be developed. Organisation skills, managing client relationships and proactively getting things done are the most important parts of the role.


WHY ARE WE RECRUITING?

We’re growing and are moving into new offices in Hertfordshire in the autumn.

As our business expands, it’s important that the infrastructure support we provide develops in line with our growth.


WHAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE THEIR FOR ME TO DEVELOP MY CAREER?

One of the great things about this role is the various opportunities it presents. In the first instance, you will focussed 100% on the administrative management of the business as outlined above. If in time you want to develop your career and train to become one of our Safeguarding Consultants, we would certainly welcome having the conversation with you.


INTERESTED?

Then please get in touch.

We would very much like to hear from you. If you’re interested, please complete the ‘Contact Form’ below expressing an interest in finding out more about this role and we’ll be in touch within 2 working days.

Rather than refer you to a Job Description, we thought we would identify some of the questions we would ask if we were applying for this role (you’ll probably ask the same questions) and in asking the questions, provide answers.


WHAT DOES THE ROLE INVOLVE?

We are looking to appoint a team of consultants, whose role will require you to research, develop, design (redesign) and then deliver safeguarding programmes to a diverse audience which will range across children, parents and professionals.

Key to your success will be your ability to engage with your audience when presenting. If they don’t buy into you and your delivery method, they won’t buy into the message.

Much of the work we win is as a result of referrals, so you will be expected to build professional relationships with our clients and identify opportunities for additional work, and to deliver new safeguarding programmes as they present themselves.


WHAT PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WILL I BE EXPECTED TO HAVE?

Certainly, you will be expected to have an interest and preferably experience of working in safeguarding. As to what specific areas of safeguarding, that’s unimportant at this stage as we have opportunities working in various areas – if you are keen to develop your safeguarding specialism and your career is currently in the workforce, this could be the role for you.

Whilst this is primarily a delivery role, you will be expected to have an input into the development of new programmes, having first undertaken the required research to keep yourself updated on new safeguarding initiatives.

You will need understand the importance and value of CPD, and be pro-active in ensuring that is undertaken.


WHAT SKILLS WOULD YOU EXPECT ME TO HAVE?

The confidence and ability to present to a diverse audience is probably the most important part of this role. People “buy” into people and in buying “you” the audience are buying into the message that you are delivering


WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE ALL THE EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS YOU REQUIRE?

For us that’s not an issue, because with 1:1 mentoring we can work with you in the areas where you may think that your experience and skills need to be developed.


WHY ARE YOU RECRUITING?

We’re growing and are looking for new consultants to join our team to support the delivery of work we have already agreed to undertake for clients in 2020.


WHAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE THEIR FOR ME TO DEVELOP MY CAREER?

One of the great things about this role is the various opportunities it presents. We work with clients across all safeguarding areas, from early years through to vulnerable adults, and every sector in between. We are looking for professionals who are passionate to deliver directly to children and young people, as well as those who wish to deliver directly to professionals.

For you, this provides a great opportunity to develop your skills in more than one area, in fact we would encourage you to do so, and to tell us how you wish your career to develop.

If, eventually you want to develop a managerial career, opportunities will almost certainly arise as we grow.

This really is an opportunity to build your career with one of the UK’s leading safeguarding providers.
