Job description

Thanks to significant new funding TLC: Talk Listen, Change is growing and are looking for a Drive Case Manager to work on a one to one basis with high risk perpetrators in Bury and Rochdale.

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change is a dynamic, leading relationships charity based in Greater Manchester. 

The Drive Partnership - Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance – believes domestic abuse is not acceptable or inevitable. Drive works with high-harm, high-risk and serial perpetrators of domestic abuse to prevent their abusive behaviour and protect adult and child victims. And it works. A study by the University of Bristol shows that the Drive intervention reduces abuse.  

The role
In this role you will be responsible for striving to make contact and work on a one-to-one basis with perpetrators whose victims have been identified as high risk to pro-actively secure engagement, influence attitudinal and behavioural change and link to complementary services. You will work with existing agencies to design a co-ordinated, strategic individual intervention plan to address identified needs. You will work closely with the IDVA service to review risk, develop safety plans and improve outcomes for all parties involved. If you’re passionate about ending domestic abuse and interested in ensuring perpetrators are risk managed and supported to change, we want to hear from you. 

About you

You will have direct experience of working with vulnerable service users and experience of working within a public protection/safeguarding multi-agency setting. You will also have experience of managing Safeguarding issues. Above all you will be comfortable with conflict management, and you’ll bring a positive, solution focused attitude.

We want you to feel empowered to bring your best to this role, so we encourage flexible working around core hours. We offer an annual continuous Professional Development allowance, generous annual leave entitlement and Birthday leave.

About us

Funding secured will enable TLC: Talk, Listen Change to grow our work with perpetrators of domestic abuse, their partners, and families. Over the coming twelve months, we are expanding existing programmes and developing several new ones, reaching considerably more people than we ever have before, and pioneering new approaches in this crucial area of work. This is a pivotal time for TLC: Talk Listen Change and we are looking for enthusiastic, experienced, engaged and highly motivated people to join our rapidly expanding team.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest pool, reflecting the diverse range of people we support.

We want to make our recruitment processes accessible to everyone, so if there is any way that we can support you to be the best you can be, please contact us. 

This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Please note: we will be shortlisting applications on an on-going basis so we encourage applicants not to wait until the closing date to submit an application where possible.
