  • About ARU

    ARU is a global university transforming lives through innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial education and research. ARU holds a Gold award for the quality of its education, awarded through the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

    ARU's research institutes and four faculties bridge scientific, technical and creative fields. We deliver impactful research which tackles pressing issues and makes a real difference to our communities. Our academic excellence has been recognised by the UK's Higher Education funding bodies, with 16 of our research areas assessed as world leading. We are the largest provider of Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social Care students in the East of England, and we are also among the UK's leading universities for degree apprenticeship provision, working with hundreds of employers across the UK.

    At our ARU Writtle campus, we specialise in animal, environmental, agricultural and horticultural courses, for learners aged 16 to 18, adult learners, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

    We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated professional to join our Safeguarding Team as a Safeguarding Adviser. This is a key role in ensuring the safety and welfare of students at Writtle College by providing help, support and appropriate responses to staff and students. You will monitor, escalate and signpost concerns related to the welfare of children, vulnerable adults, or other at-risk groups to suitable internal and external services and agencies.

    You will need a degree or be part qualified in a relevant professional qualification at degree level, or have demonstrable appropriate level of experience and evidence of CPD relevant to the role. To succeed in your application, it is vital that you have practical knowledge of following statutory guidance in working with young people and/or vulnerable adults, as well as dealing with confidential/sensitive issues including Safeguarding and Prevent.

    As a Term-time role, salary in the first year will be pro-rata depending on the number of working weeks that will be completed in the current academic year. At the start of the new academic year, the salary will be calculated as 1/12th of the annual pro-rata salary.

    It is expected that interviews will take place on 19 July 2024.
