We’re proud that our Multi Agency Safeguarding Hubs have been nationally recognised for their best practice. The six hubs in our area bring together services including housing, police, education and social services for vulnerable children and adults. In fact, we were one of the first forces in the country to have a MASH in each of our local authority areas.  


We have an opportunity to join our Northern MASH Team as Mash Support and Meeting Officer. Working for our safeguarding team is a chance to be part of something special, part of something that really matters. 

In return for your dedication and experience, we offer 23 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 28 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.  

What will I be doing?

You will be responsible for receiving and reviewing referrals and notifications from a variety of partner agencies. 


You will research police systems to prepare reports for both yourself and other to attend multi- agency meetings.  


You will ensure information is shared accurately and within the legislative framework with other stakeholders to support effective safeguarding. 


Your research will inform report writing and support decision making at relevant meetings, therefore accuracy is essential. 

In such meetings you will be required to quickly consider information from a variety of sources in order for you to give your opinion on behalf of the force. 


What do I need?

You need to be a confident speaker with excellent communication skills, as you will be required to attend a variety of multi-agency meetings including ICPC and MARAC.
