Community Safety Strategy Coordinator
An opportunity has arisen within Lincolnshire County Council for a Community Safety Strategy Coordinator to support the delivery of strategic and operational work on modern slavery and reducing offending, and the wider community safety agenda across the county.
The Community Safety Team is seeking a highly motivated and committed individual to join them in supporting the work of the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership, specifically the Modern Slavery and Reducing Offending Core Priority Group. The post holder will provide strategic and professional expertise to enhance the partnership response to these agendas, so knowledge and experience in this field of work and a passion for keeping communities safe is essential.
The post holder will work closely with other partnership Boards to strengthen the County's response to modern slavery, with the aim of ensuring agencies continue to work as effectively as possible to safeguard those at risk of harm, so a good understanding of the safeguarding environment (children and adults) is essential.
The successful candidate will work in collaboration with colleagues at all levels, both within Lincolnshire County Council and across key community safety partners, such as Police, Probation, District Councils and Health, so must be able to engage in complex operational partnership arrangements as well as strategic discussions.
The ability to drive and enhance partnerships will be critical to success, so the post holder must have excellent networking and communication skills and a demonstrable ability to negotiate and influence others.
The Community Safety Team strives to ensure Lincolnshire remains at the forefront of innovative multi-agency practice within the Community Safety arena. The successful applicant will need to be at the forefront of developments both nationally, regionally and locally, in order to identify new approaches and consider how these may be applied in Lincolnshire. The post holder will be involved in the development and/or management of new Community Safety projects, so previous experience of project management would be desirable.
