Job description

Independent Road Victim Advocate (IRVA) – North Yorkshire

Every week, about 200 people are killed or catastrophically injured in road crashes, and more die from respiratory illnesses due to traffic pollution. Brake is the leading charity urgently working to stop the carnage; and helping bereaved families and injured victims through our acclaimed National Road Victim Service.

Brake’s National Road Victim Service is a free, confidential, specialist service for anybody who has been bereaved or seriously injured in a road crash or are supporting a road crash victim.

Working as part of our National Road Victim Service we are looking for an experienced support professional to establish local face-to-face delivery in North Yorkshire, enabling us to case manage provision of immediate and early intervention care to victims of road death and serious and life changing injury in the North Yorkshire police force area. This role is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in North Yorkshire.

As the IRVA, you will be supporting people in a one-to-one setting within North Yorkshire, who have suffered traumatic bereavement or serious and life changing injury by a road crash. You will be required to do so in a highly sensitive and empathetic manner, providing emotional support alongside complex information and advocacy requiring high level diplomacy skills.  You will use a clinically and trauma informed casework methodology approach to support provision, using risk and needs assessments, with support plans working in partnership with North Yorkshire Police and other local specialist support services.

This is a new role at the charity within our friendly and expert team. The successful applicant will be required to work 21.75 hours per week on set days within normal office hours. The role is for an initial 12- month contract and may be extended subject to funding.  The successful candidate will need to be based in North Yorkshire and will need their own transport to travel across the county. The role will be subject to the latest covid-19 restrictions with support provided over the phone or through virtual meetings when face-to-face support is not possible. The successful candidate will be required to go through a police vetting process due to the sensitive nature of the service delivered.

Principal duties will include:

  1. Be informed and help service users discuss, in a safe environment, the emotional and physical symptoms that they are suffering; or are common to suffer and that they may suffer later.
  2. Develop a user-centred support plan, to help the service user cope on a day to day, night to night, basis, with their emotional and physical symptoms.
  3. Enable service users to cope with immediate practical challenges that may otherwise feel “too much to bear”, through a multi-agency approach to risk and needs planning.
  4. Have their immediate wellbeing needs met and any safeguarding issues addressed.
  5. Develop and agree, with consent, a safe exit strategy via a continued pathway of further support that the service user accesses, if appropriate.
  6. Develop and maintain strong working relationships with North Yorkshire Police and other local specialist support services.

You will have:

  • Experience of using a case management approach to supporting people in traumatic situations.  
  • An understanding of the importance of working within standardised protocols and procedures and experience of risk management and safeguarding procedures in a one-to-one support setting.
  • An understanding of the effects of traumatic bereavement or serious and life changing injury and a willingness to learn more in this area.
  • An understanding of the Criminal Justice system and Coroners Court.
  • Experience of liaising with other professionals within an advocacy setting.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, alongside effective communication skills, both verbally and in written form.
  • The ability to deal sensitively and accurately with complex and emotionally charged situations.
  • The ability to demonstrate empathy and control of own emotions and well-being, whilst supporting people/families who are suffering the effects of traumatic bereavement or serious and life changing injury.
  • Excellent computer literacy with the ability to record conversations with accuracy.
  • Flexibility to work within the needs of the service requirements.
  • Demonstratable experience of delivering support in a people centred service.
