You will be customer focussed and deliver excellence in service delivery, building and maintaining relationships with external partners and key stakeholders. You will be able to work without direct supervision, prioritising work and dealing with competing or conflicting demands/ needs and interests in an organised and methodical manner. You will have knowledge of safeguarding legislation and practice and sound IT expertise.

Victim Support offers competitive rewards and benefits including pension and life assurance, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata), voluntary benefits such as season ticket loans and the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing world-class services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.
