If you are passionate about improving safeguarding, able to ensure the robust application of evaluation and find creative ways of sharing learning we want to hear from you. We are looking for a Quality Assurance Manager to support the work of Coventry’s Safeguarding Adult and Children Boards. You will be confident to analyse information, challenge performance and robustly monitor action that makes a real difference to safeguarding people with care and support needs, and children and young people in the city.

The role

The Safeguarding Boards Quality Assurance Manager is required to lead on the overall management of the multi-agency quality assurance programme for Coventry’s Local Safeguarding Adults and Children’s Boards (CSCB and CSAB). This includes taking an independent role in coordinating the audit activity of each Board, working closely with senior leaders from a wide range of organisations.

The Quality Assurance Manager is also required to produce and develop performance intelligence to inform and evaluate performance for the Independent Chairs and sub groups of the Boards.

Another element of the role is to collate and disseminate learning from quality assurance work, ensuring the effective delivery of multi-agency safeguarding quality and service improvements.

You’ll need:

A professional qualification relating to service delivery to children or adults (social care, health, police, education etc.)

About us

This role works across a number of departments and organisations, but is currently hosted by Coventry City Council Children’s Services, part of the People Directorate. The Directorate is responsible for children and adult social care, education, libraries, and public health. We aim to support people to live independent and fulfilling lives, free from harm or abuse.

The post holder will be joining Coventry City Council at an exciting time as the organisation changes the way in which it delivers its services. Staff across the Council will work differently, with more shared space, new technology, hot-desking and many other changes.


In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. These include working from home (subject to project/service area requirements) and a generous holiday allowance (starting at 35 days including bank holidays). In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government contributory pension scheme, childcare vouchers, 'MyCar' scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts at a number of city centre restaurants, shops and other establishments.
