Webinar recording: Safer recruitment in faith-based organisations

Safeguarding webinar series 2022

Recorded March 2022

Safer recruitment practices help to make sure that staff, volunteers and trustees are suitable to work with others in the organisation and with beneficiaries. Safety should be considered at every stage of the recruitment process. It’s a vital part of creating a safe and positive environment and making a commitment to keep beneficiaries safe from harm.

Safer recruitment should be a continuing process of improvement for every organisation whose work or services involve contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults with care and support needs. Safer recruitment is also the method of designing your recruitment process to deter unsuitable applicants from applying for roles with vulnerable groups, and to identify and reject them if they do.

The session is run by Suzanne Cottrell, Safeguarding Audits Manager at SCIE.

The webinar covers the following aspects:

  • What is safer recruitment?
  • Why is safer recruitment important to me?
  • What can happen if we don’t get safer recruitment right?
  • Stages of recruiting safely
  • What to do if things go wrong
  • Next steps in your safer recruitment journey.
