Job description

Victim Support (VS) Multi-Crime Service in Devon and Cornwall has an exciting new opportunity for two full-time (37.5hr) Case workers internally known as Multi Crime Services Project Caseworker working Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm with the flexibility to sometimes work outside these hours to meet client need. The post will be home-based and open to applicants who live within Devon and Cornwall.

Victim Support (VS) is an independent charity providing a range of specialist services to people who have been affected by crime across England and Wales. We work towards a world where there are fewer victims but who have stronger rights, better support and a real influence in the Criminal Justice System. Everyone at VS is driven by our Vision Ambitions and Values to play their part in making a difference for those who experience crime and traumatic events. Working for VS gives you the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing high quality services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.

The main duties of this role include responsibility for provision of tailored one-to-one support to those affected by crime including by the shootings in Plymouth in August 2021. This will include providing direct support to clients. The successful applicant will also need to establish links with relevant local organisations to increase awareness of the impact of crime and form smooth referral pathways.

Given the duties outlined above, we are looking for an exceptional and motivated person who will have strong personal and emotional resilience through personal or professional experience. You will also be skilled in prioritizing a workload and in building positive working relationships.

As this is a home-based role you will need to have access to an appropriately confidential space in which to work.

We do not require assistance from a recruitment agency.

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.

Applications should be explicit enough to provide good evidence against the shortlisting criteria, which are marked in the person specification as A. In order to apply, please create a profile in our website (jobs section), complete and submit an online application form.

If the vacancy has not specified the essential criteria for shortlisting, please use this section to express how your experience and skills are relevant for the role.

VS are committed to recruiting with care and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks and Disclosed Barring Service checks will be required.

Victim Support is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe having a diverse workforce at all levels allows us to represent the communities we serve and connect better with people affected by crime. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds. We therefore welcome applicants from all communities and monitor the diversity of applicants to analyse if we are representative of the communities we serve in terms of sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, trans identity, relationship status, religion or belief, caring responsibilities, age and socio-economic status. As part of our commitment to the Race at Work Charter we would particularly welcome applicants from BAME communities.

If you have the drive to make a difference within an organisation which makes a difference we look forward to hearing from you.
