Job description

Thames Valley Partnership is an established registered charity of 25 years operating a range of support services for those affected by crime, across the three Thames Valley counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, and beyond. 

Following a successful funding bid to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner Thames Valley, the Partnership has been selected to deliver a new, specialist support service for adult victims, beginning in April 2020. The new service will be tailored to meet victims’ individual needs, and could include trauma-informed interventions in individual or group settings, advocacy support including help to access mental health or drug and alcohol services, restorative justice conferencing, as well as practical and emotional support to navigate the criminal justice process. We will work closely with two partner agencies (OSARCC and Trust House)  bringing professionals with different specialisms together.

We now therefore seek Caseworkers to join the team to provide prevention, intervention and crisis support to anyone who is/has experienced or is deemed to be at risk of any form of harm (i.e. sexual, modern slavery, criminal, financial) and to identify and engage with these individuals on a one-to-one basis, enabling them to access services and make positive, empowering choices to change their lives. A knowledge of the full range of civil, criminal and other practical support options available, and the role of an independent advisor within them is necessary.  The roles will operate from offices in Reading, Oxford and Milton Keynes, although not necessarily expected to be office based as the work is hands on and will entail being out and about in the given area dealing with service users.  These are full time roles although job share and flexible working may be available on request.

Closing date for applications:  Wednesday 19th February at 8am

Interviews will be held on:  Monday 24th February (at the Partnership’s offices)
