As part of our greener future strategies and our commitment to creating a healthy work-life balance, we welcome a conversation with you regarding our remote working options. Remote working to us is a balance of spending time in our communities, our offices and working remotely from home or wherever works best.

Do you feel passionate about ensuring that families experiencing domestic abuse receive the support they need in a timely way? Are you looking for an opportunity to gain experience of working within a multi professional environment?

We currently have 3 full time opportunities to join us on a 12 month fixed term contract basis to provide comprehensive administration support to MARAC.

MARAC is a Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference and is a meeting where information is shared on the highest risk domestic abuse cases between representatives of local police, health, child protection, housing practitioners, Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), probation and other specialists from the statutory and voluntary sectors.

We are looking for individuals who have an awareness of domestic abuse and how it can impact on victims and their children and who want to ensure that they receive timely support. Working as an integral part of the team you will protect and uphold the safety and security (including Health and Safety) of the service users, staff, volunteers and buildings, and the confidentiality of records and other information in line with data protection, as well as the rights of women and children experiencing domestic abuse. You will be proactive, solution-focused, and responsible for personal learning and development, including keeping up to date on relevant research and legislation, and participating in supervision, training and meetings as required. We’re looking for people who can work across teams and undertake such other duties, appropriate to the grade and character of the work, as may reasonably be expected.

Key tasks you would undertake as part of this role include but are not limited to:

  • Supporting the work of MARACs, meetings and workshops. This involves arranging dates of meetings; compiling agendas; checking and co-ordinating agendas and other papers; making necessary arrangements for meetings, including securing venues, displaying public notices; supporting the chair, inviting guests and distributing and despatching on time all necessary papers; attending meetings; drafting minutes and reports; and co-ordinating such follow-up action as may be necessary.
  • Attending, delivering and participating in training, meetings and seminars and to organise and deliver training, briefings and presentations for partners and representatives.
  • Interpreting, collating and analysing complex information/statistics in relation to the service area for the ongoing monitoring of performance/progress. 
  • Keeping records up to date, providing reports as required and monitoring performance against strategic objectives and relevant indicators.

While effective interpersonal and written and oral communication skills are vital, we will provide you with training to ensure competence and your professional development. We will ensure that you receive a full induction and monthly supervision.

Our team members are enthusiastic and supportive, committed to the provision of a quality service for children and their carers and we are looking for people with similar qualities to join us to continue the good work already being done.

 At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
