    Britain Yearly Meeting is the national organisation of Quakers in Britain. This new role is an exciting opportunity to lead the development of safeguarding for Quakers in Britain.

    The Safeguarding Officer will be our expert and will work with staff from across the organisation so that safeguarding is ingrained in all of our work. You will ensure that our procedures are up to date and that we follow best practice to protect all children, young people and vulnerable adults that come into contact with our charity.

    You will also support Quaker communities across Britain that hold all-age public meetings for worship and events for children and young people. You will advise Quakers by providing central resources, advice on training and help with finding professional support on casework.

    We are looking for someone who is able to build positive relationships and is sensitive to a variety of abilities and needs. We hope they will galvanise others to build a culture of vigilance, help us maintain high safeguarding standards and lead continuous improvement.

    You do not need to be a Quaker to hold this post but you would need to be in sympathy with our values. Weekend and evening work is required from time to time, with occasional periods away at events.

    Quakers are committed to working for equality and for a sustainable and peaceful world. Our Impact and Projects Officer will help us understand the difference our work is making – so we can communicate this to others and help us target our resources in the future.

    This is an exciting time to join the team. We are currently developing a shared understanding of evaluation and impact across our work and a way to use impact findings in our planning and decision making.

    We're looking for someone with a good knowledge of project management and evaluating impact, and someone able to support colleagues and volunteers to incorporate this into their work. We want our Impact and Projects Officer to develop how we measure our work and to analyse and present complex information.

    Quakers follow a way of life that is built on the principles of truth, equality, peace and simplicity. We have a long-held commitment to putting faith into direct action. You do not need to be a Quaker to fill this role but you would need to be in sympathy with our values.

    Flexible working will be considered. This is a part-time role and we will consider different work patterns. Although the Recording Clerk's Office is based at Friends House in London we will consider work from other locations although some attendance at Friends House will be required.
