Current vacancies

 

Drive Expert Advisor

Position:                    Expert Domestic Abuse Advisor – Drive Project

Reports to:                Drive Replication Programme Lead 

Hours:                       37.5 hours per week with flexible working hours

Salary:                       £38,000 - £42,000 per year (plus London weighting)

Location:                    Flexible across London and other Drive sites (including South Wales, West Mercia, West Midlands)

Travel:                       You may be required to travel extensively throughout England and Wales

Contract:                   Fixed term to 31st March 2020

About the role

We know that there are 100,000 adults and 130,000 children at high-risk of murder or serious harm due to domestic abuse, yet less than 1% of perpetrators receive any specialist intervention to change or disrupt their behaviour. We cannot tackle domestic abuse without getting to the root of the problem: the perpetrator.

Drive is an innovative national pilot that aims to improve the lives and safety of victims and children by holding high-risk perpetrators to account. The pilot combines 1-2-1 case management of perpetrators with a co-ordinated multi-agency response and sustainable transformation of local and national systems.

The pilot, led by Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance, has completed its first 18 months in three areas. We have learnt a great deal and the initial results around victim and child safety are encouraging.

Although subject to final confirmation of funding level, this is a hugely exciting time for Drive. We are now embarking on a replication of the pilot in five new areas.

As an Expert Advisor, you will provide domestic abuse and perpetrator expertise to the team. You will support the Programme Lead in their work and support operational teams in their delivery of interventions, ensuring high quality and safe practice. We have extensive insight into what works from the original pilot and this role will ensure that is fed into the replication sites through training and expertise. This will involve ensuring local systems and processes are in place to ensure best practice.

This role is vital in the success of the replication of the Drive pilot across the country, ensuring that survivors and children are at the heart of what we do and how we can make families safer, sooner.

How To Apply

If this challenge sounds as exciting to you as it does to us and you believe you have the qualities we have described, please look over the job description below and submit your CV and 500 word cover letter to recruitment@safelives.org.uk by 5.00pm on Monday 22nd January 2018.
