Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club are currently recruiting for a safeguarding manager to join our high performing team.

This position will sit within our HR Team but will be fully integrated across the Club and Charity. This is a brand new and exciting role which will involve leading the Club and Charity’s safeguarding strategy, vision, values, priorities, policies and aim to promote and protect the welfare of vulnerable groups. We have a robust safeguarding structure in place and we are looking for a person who is passionate about driving our safeguarding commitment to the next level.
