Job Description

Are you interested in helping to improve access to justice for people who have experienced, or are experiencing, domestic abuse (DA)?

The Personal Support Unit (PSU) is an independent charity providing much-needed support to people dealing with the civil and family court process without legal representation. Many people facing court without a lawyer have experience of domestic abuse, and the PSU is recruiting for a number of roles that will enable us to enhance the support we are able to offer them. 

This  part-time Admin Assistant (DA) role is a new one-year+ appointment (funded until the end of March 2020) and will be integrated into our current services.  You will help with a range of administrative duties in different PSUs across the NW region, and you will add capacity for us to improve the support we provide to litigants in person, especially those with experience of domestic abuse.

We are looking to recruit a post holder based in PSU Manchester. You will report to the Regional Manager based in these locations, and will be expected to carry out some travel around the region.

While experience in a domestic abuse context is not essential, it would be an advantage, but we are mainly looking for: efficient administrative skills; the ability to co-operate with colleagues in a fast-paced and varied work-place; empathy for clients; willingness to learn; and the flexibility to follow directions or take the initiative as needed.

Your working pattern will be agreed with your Manager, depending on demand across the region.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to receiving your application: please send a CV, together with a covering letter clearly explaining how you fulfil the criteria in the job specification and the requirements for the role.

Closing date: 21 January 2019
