West London, W13

Be part of our cutting-edge work to safeguard young people in the community at risk of CSE, gang involvement and drug related risks within the community. The role involves helping girls placed to understand the impact of the abuse they have suffered and identifying young females as victims of exploitation. You will be involved in delivering therapeutic interventions to support young females impacted by the trauma of exploitation with emotional and mental health difficulties.

About the Role

As a CSE Practitioner,  you will provide direct support and care for young females aged 12 to 17 years.

You will engage in intensive key working, with closely supervised activities and will be responsible for providing detailed reports and monitoring.

This role would suit candidates with high levels of emotional resilience and self-awareness to deal with social emotional and mental health needs given the nature of risks managed within a closely monitored and supervised environment.
