Domestic Abuse Support Services - South Derbyshire and Erewash

This post is a fixed term for 1 year

We are looking for 2 post holders within our Domestic Abuse Services to provide a holistic support service for customers who have experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse. Specifically working with those in the ‘harder to reach’ communities inclusive of customers within the LGBT+, BME and traveller communities. Working to ensure they are able to access the support with discrimination, maximise their independence and are able to positively break free of the cycle of abuse and positively move on in line with their dreams and ambitions.

You will be suitably qualified and have experience of providing 1:1 and group support to adults over the aged of 16.

The successful applicant must be able to work on their own initiative and also as part of a multi-disciplinary team. You should be able to demonstrate an understanding of domestic violence and abuse and the effects on men, women and children. Our services are delivered to meet the needs of individuals and you will be required to work flexibly as and when required.

This is a brilliant time to join the team as our service is growing, and there is plenty of opportunity to make a big impact in this project. If you think you fit this role and want to be part of an organisation that is in an exciting period of change and growth, then we want to hear from you.

Please note it is a genuine occupational requirement (GOR) for this post holder to be female due to the customer group
