North East Lincolnshire Council is pleased to announce opportunities to work within a newly formed project that will work with children who are victims of Exploitation, Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery.
The project is being developed following the successful grant provided by the Home Office as part of the Trusted Relationships Fund.
The specialist project will tackle the regional derivers of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE), namely low aspiration substance misuse and involvement in the illegal drugs market. Interventions will be delivered by practitioners with small caseloads on a one to one and group work basis, alongside signposting to sports, arts and cultural activities. A dedicated NEET worker will address the connection between CCE and being in alternative education provision. Community mentors will help to build a richer picture of the nature of exploitation in the area, with a particular focus on exploitation of siblings of gang affiliated young people and those with no previous criminal record or engagement with law enforcement.
The project will adopt a trauma informed approach with the aim of helping victims achieve positive destinations in relation to education and leisure, aiding exit from exploitative situations.
We are currently seeking to recruit to the following position:
- NEET Practitioner – Working with children who are referred to the project you will seek to achieve positive destinations for them in relation to their education training and employment. Employing a range of skills in relation to engagement with young people you will also seek to advocate on their behalf’s to ensure that they are able to access ETE opportunities.
All posts are funded on a Fixed term basis until 31st March 2020, with the potential of an additional two year funding after this date.
Closing date for applications is 1st October 2018.
Interviews for these posts will take place on 10th 11th and 15th October 2018.
