We have 3 new Early Help Worker IDVA posts within our IDVA service which offers crisis support to victims of domestic abuse. We are looking for someone with experience of working face to face with families and/or vulnerable adults and who has a good knowledge of domestic abuse.  

The successful candidates will either have an IDVA related qualification or be prepared to work towards this as part of their role. Excellent communication skills are essential to the role which requires regular contact with service users, colleagues, other Council departments and external agencies.  This role involves active case management and so excellent time management skills and an ability to work to tight timescales is essential. One of the posts will focus on managing ‘complex’ domestic abuse cases which also include issues around mental health and/or substance misuse.

These are fixed term posts which are externally funded by the Ministry of Justice until 31 March 2023.
