Full Time, 37.5 hours a week Salary £23,369
Our VFSS (Victims’ First Specialist Service) delivers a new, specialist support service for adult victims, tailored to meet victims’ individual needs, including trauma-informed interventions in individual or group settings, advocacy support including help to access mental health or drug and alcohol services, restorative justice conferencing, as well as practical and emotional support to navigate the criminal justice process. This service is delivered in partnership with OSARCC and Trust House, bringing professionals with different specialisms together.
We now have a vacancy for a Caseworker to join the Buckinghamshire delivery team to provide prevention, intervention and crisis support to anyone who is/has experienced or is deemed to be at risk of any form of harm (i.e. sexual, modern slavery, criminal, financial) and to identify and engage with these individuals on a one-to-one basis, enabling them to access services and make positive, empowering choices to change their lives. A knowledge of the full range of civil, criminal and other practical support options available, and the role of an independent advisor within them is necessary. We would particularly welcome applications from individuals who are currently qualified as an Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) or who would be willing to work towards an ISVA qualification as part of the role.
The role will operate from offices in Buckinghamshire – however you will not necessarily be expected to be office based as the work is hands on and will entail being out and about in the given area dealing with service users. These are full time roles although job share and flexible working may be available on request.
Closing date for applications: Friday 28th May 2021 at 5.00p.m.
Interviews will be held on: Date To Be Confirmed
