£26,000 per annum Inc. London Weighting

 The Young People and Children’s Worker will be based in advance's Brent service and hold responsibility for delivering one to one services for survivors of teen abuse aged 13-18 and for delivering group work for children at school age where there is domestic abuse perpetrated from one parent to another. The post holder will provide support and advocacy for young people, and identify and improve referral pathways for those experiencing domestic violence and abuse to access ongoing support.

The post holder will have an understanding of domestic violence and its effects on survivors and children, and of best practice within the children and young peoples sectors. As an experienced Children and Young People’s worker you will be skilled in risk management and safety planning, remaining calm in a crisis, and in handling sensitive information on a daily basis. Experience of direct work with survivors of domestic abuse is desired; however, working with young people and children in face-to-face and group-work capacity is essential for this post as it is working within safeguarding principles and promoting a strong partnership approach to service provision.

Advance is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. The post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check  and  police vetting  and is open to women only (*Exempt under the Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, Part 1).

Benefits include 30 days holiday per annum, childcare vouchers and a workplace pension

The deadline for applications is 22nd May at 12pm.
