Job description

37.5 hours per week, 12-month fixed term 

Flexible location (home, Bristol office or London office) with regular travel across UK 

Our training programme significantly improves the ability of domestic abuse professionals and other frontline responders and organisations, including police, children’s social care staff, and corporate HR and community teams, to identify and respond to domestic abuse and closely linked issues. We take a holistic approach, looking at the whole family and the connections between them to keep families safe sooner, and offer a whole range of training products to develop people who support them, including accredited professional training (e.g Idva, Ypva), accreditation of specialist DA services (Leading Lights), and bespoke services for public, voluntary and commercial organisations. 

Our training programme across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland aims to create: 

  • user value: with learners who attend our training feeling more confident and better equipped to fulfil their role 
  • social value: with measures showing professionals who attend our training provide more effective interventions for those who experience abuse 
  • financial value: responsible for generating around a third of SafeLives’ annual income

As one of SafeLives’ trainers and assessors you will be part of the SafeLives learning and accreditation programme, with shared responsibility for developing, delivering and continuing a range of courses from within our suite. More broadly, you will work to ensure that SafeLives’ training programmes are in line with our strategic priorities and are of the highest quality, including course development and delivery with external partners and associate trainers. 

You will combine teamwork with working independently on a day-to-day basis at home, in SafeLives’ Bristol or London office and at training locations. 

This role offers a unique opportunity to influence the performance of professionals within the domestic abuse and related sectors at a national level as well as the response of other frontline or first responders in the public, voluntary or commercial sectors, and thus help address the risks faced by victims of domestic abuse. 

Benefits include a generous package including: 25 days’ holiday a year plus public holidays, employee pension scheme with 4% employer contribution, Cycle2Work scheme, 365 days a year Employee Assistance Programme
