Fixed term contract until 31st March 2020


This exciting post involves supporting the Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) Coordinator  in delivering the fortnightly conferences.  The MARAC takes place between public and voluntary sector specialists to review the highest risk cases of domestic abuse and to draft a risk management  plan for each victim. The role is based in Leamington and covers the Warwickshire area.  You would be needed to attend the Rugby, North and South Warwickshire meetings.

We are looking to recruit a candidate with excellent organisational skills to provide high quality support to the coordination and administration of MARAC. You will collect and record information on MARAC cases and ensure consistency of referrals. You will work closely with the Coordinator and  liaise with partner agencies before and after meetings to ensure that actions are followed through, and prepare agendas and minutes for the MARAC.

The successful candidate will have outstanding administration skills and the ability to use initiative and judgment in dealing with colleagues and partner agencies. You will communicate clearly and concisely, in your written and oral communication and work successfully both independently and as part of a team.

You will be familiar with collecting and analysing data and have proven ability to maintain high standards of confidentiality. Experience working within a multi-agency environment is desirable, as is experience working in the field of domestic violence or public protection. However, full training and support for the role will be given
