Our client is currently recruiting a Domestic Abuse and Safeguarding Coordinator to join their successful Neighbourhoods Team and help deliver great housing services in Tower Hamlets.


You will lead on Domestic Abuse and Safeguarding, coordinating Housing Officers casework and will be responsible for the review and delivery of their Domestic Abuse and Safeguarding action plans. The role will not be responsible for handling every case directly but will act as a point of reference in order to support staff that are. 


As part of the role, you will be required to deliver; communications campaigns; training across the organisation; improve reporting structures, case management systems and procedures to increase access and the quality of recording and responses to resident and staff reports; partnership working with LBTH Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG); and the fortnightly borough-wide Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARAC), and the workload that will come with them.  


To be successful for the role, you will need to have experience of working within a social housing or related voluntary sector organisation; multiagency work project work; involvement in domestic abuse and safeguarding projects and of managing and prioritising a case load and working under pressure.


They are looking for people who are highly motivated, flexible, committed and have a genuine desire to work with local people and with partnerships to improve the neighbourhoods and make Tower Hamlets a great place to live and work.   You will be part of an organisation which puts residents at the heart of all its activities.

In return for you choosing to work with them they will offer you a range of great benefits, including:


  • 26 days paid holiday each year, plus 8 bank holidays

  • A fantastic career-average pension scheme

  • Salary Sacrifice schemes

  • Amazing commercial discounts, including discounts at many gyms, shops and restaurants

  • Your voice heard through their staff forum and networking groups for women and LGBT staff

  • Newly refurbished offices, with free tea, coffee, fruit and shower facilities

  • Interest-free season ticket loans 

  • Community Language Honorarium worth £50 per month to any member of staff who is able to provide services in community languages where this is required, saving them money instead of using external translation services.


They particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) candidates, as these groups are under-represented within the Company.


Our client is a recognised Disability Confident employer and guarantees to interview all disabled candidates who meet the minimum essential criteria for the role.
