Vacancy: Safeguarding Case Management Personnel

The British Judo Association are looking to expand the membership of its Safeguarding Case Management Group (CMG) to represent the diverse identity of our Judo Community.

A CMG is a small committee with identified, relevant skills, knowledge, and experience of risk assessment within a Safeguarding/Child Protection environment. Its role is to initially assess and agree an immediate response to the more serious safeguarding concerns brought to the attention of the BJA Safeguarding Manager.

We are looking for a wide range of perspectives with either strategic or operational management within safeguarding, child protection or the management of interpersonal or sexual offenders. This will most likely be within a social work, probation, or policing environment but those from other backgrounds, with the relevant skills will also be considered.

Successful applicants would be expected to discuss relevant cases in a phone or video conference in the first instance. Face to face meetings is rarely necessary. It is anticipated that the role will require up to 4 hours per month. This is a voluntary role, but any reasonable expenses will be paid by the BJA.

It is likely that candidates will be able to evidence most, if not all of the following criteria:

  • Experience of multi-agency risk assessments and management of risks
  • A background in strategic or operational management within Safeguarding/Child Protection
  • A detailed knowledge of legislation and guidance regarding safeguarding
  • A background in social work, probation, policing or other relevant roles
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills
  • A relevant professional or academic qualification

If you believe that you have the necessary skills and experience, please send your CV and a covering letter to

We would be applying safer recruitment good practice in our application process.

If you require further information, please contact the BJA Safeguarding Manager, Andrew Bowly on 07788 391520.

The closing date or applications is Monday 5 August
