Job description

Victim Support is looking for a SPACE Project Worker based in Ealing.

Victim Support (VS) is an independent charity for people affected by crime in England and Wales. We work towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and respect they deserve.

This is an exciting opportunity to provide support and advocacy services to the children of victims of domestic abuse. As a dedicated and passionate member of our team your time will be split between providing one to one support to children who have experience/witnessed domestic abuse, and the line management of student trainee therapists as they work on a caseload across the borough of Ealing. You will work on a renewed project that is established in the Borough of Ealing and as such will maintain and enhance service delivery standards and effectiveness of outcomes by coordinating referrals and providing structured support.

Due to the nature of support work with young people, some unsociable hours may be required. However, this will be compensated by Time Off In Lieu and flexible working practices.

Furthermore, Victim Support offers competitive rewards and benefits including pension and life assurance, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata), voluntary benefits such as season ticket loans and the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing world-class services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.
