Job description

Do you have experience working within a domestic abuse setting? Do you have experience delivering psycho-social interventions with vulnerable people who have complex mental health needs?

Drive Project is service providing intensive intervention with high-harm and serial domestic abuse perpetrators to challenge behaviour, to disrupt and prevent abuse. Right now we are looking for someone new to join us in a new role – this is a chance to make a real difference.

The Specialist Case Manager (domestic abuse with mental health specialism) is an integral role providing one-to-one mental health interventions to support the service user to embark on their recovery journey, and to then safely introduce domestic abuse intervention alongside ongoing mental health support to meet the dual need. You will also offer advice to other Case Managers from your area of specialism in mental health.

You must have experience delivering mental health interventions, not just triaging. Experience working within a Mental Health Team or other frontline mental health service is desired.

You will receive 12 days High Harm Domestic Abuse training and an opportunity to complete an OCN qualification, fully funded by Drive Project, if in post before the training dates (April and May).

This is an exciting and innovative role that will provide an enhanced level of case intervention to overcome barriers to engagement so that we can meet dual needs and improve victim and child safety and welfare through working in an integrative approach with perpetrators. The Specialist Case Manager role is a new role, created in response to identified need. As such, this opportunity will offer the successful candidate a chance to be involved in developing this post and assessing how it supports the delivery of the Drive Project model.

If you have delivered mental health support and domestic abuse support and want to join a growing and developing project to improve the lives of vulnerable persons apply now by submitting your CV and Supporting Statement – you may not be considered without attaching both of these documents. Previous applicants need not apply.

This is a full time post for 37.5 hours per week.

 

This is a fixed term post until 31st December 2021, with potential for a permanent position to follow.

 

The salary for this post is £26,639 per annum, pro rata.

This is a rolling recruitment process, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed as and when they apply.
