Job description

Wolverhampton with extensive travel within region

Ref: EVM-211

Due to the nature of the role, this post is only open to female applicants.

Are you a proactive, organised and compassionate individual with a track record of providing support, advice and advocacy and the ability to assess clients’ needs? Do you have experience of engaging positively with young females or other vulnerable groups?

If so, join St Giles Trust as a Ending Violent Abuse & Exploitation Caseworker, where you will provide vital mentoring support to young women and girls in Wolverhampton under 18 years at risk, on the periphery, or entrenched within Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE), gangs, county lines, and Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE).

About St Giles Trust

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others. 

St Giles is now a kickstart employer, so we are part of the scheme which provides job opportunities for 16-24-year-olds who are currently on Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment.

About this exciting opportunity

St Giles has recently been awarded a new project through the Home Office to pilot a new female support service that includes training for professionals, prevention and early intervention and support. As part of this key service, our successful candidate will be expected to build positive relationships with young females and their families and work directly with them in order to promote positive change, build resilience, reduce risks and prevent young people from experiencing significant harm.

You will also produce risk management plans based on assessments and deliver a holistic support service that will include social and housing support, training and employment options and benefits work. Developing and maintaining relationships with sexual health clinics, exploitation hubs, children’s social care and schools is a key duty, as is supporting the design and delivery of the CSE/CCE female SOS+ professional training sessions.

St Giles Trust is committed to safeguarding and protecting the wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share their commitment. An enhanced DBS with barred list check is required for all successful applicants.

What we are looking for

  • Experience of engaging successfully with challenging people or people with complex needs
  • Experience in negotiating with partner agencies to establish links to further the aims of a project
  • Experience of recording information to enable effective monitoring of performance against targets
  • Knowledge of, and commitment to, safeguarding practices and policies, and ability to promote safeguarding among vulnerable clients and colleagues
  • A relevant qualification to a good standard or be working towards one
  • Impressive relationship-building and communication skills, both verbal and written
  • A flexible, proactive and professional approach to your work

In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, childcare vouchers, season ticket loan and much more.

Successful candidates should expect to be appointed at the starting point of the salary scale. A higher salary will only be considered for exceptional candidates with strong evidence of relevant experience.

Part-Time – 17.5 hrs p/w - Fixed-term contract until March 31st, 2022 – potential for extension dependent on funding
