We have a vacancy for a County Welfare Officer to help safeguard our members and provide support to our affiliated Club Welfare Officers with training and advice. The main purpose of the role is to assist with the safeguarding and protecting of children and young people in aquatics, and to implement relevant Swim England policy and procedures. In doing so, the person undertaking the role should have an understanding of child protection, and how best practice and the use of record checks can help prevent child abuse. Please share the advert in your Club and network if you can help.
...... if you're the sort of person who wants to be super busy all year round, you might feel a little underwhelmed to hear our next Volunteer Co-ordinator would only need to support a couple of competitions a year. However if that would send you into full on 'Corporal Jones of Dad's Army' mode, shouting "Don't Panic, Don't Panic", perhaps you could feel overwhelmed.
What we really need, right now, is someone who is properly whelmed, if that's a thing. Someone who is full of encouragement, gets things done, smiles a lot and thanks people for what they do to help. If this sounds like you, or someone you know, please apply here.
