We are Next Chapter, a domestic abuse charity that provides free and confidential services to support people who are currently experiencing, or have previously experienced, domestic abuse. We work across Tendring, Colchester, Maldon, Chelmsford, Braintree and Uttlesford.

Formerly known as Colchester & Tendring Women's Refuge, our mission is to provide rapid responses that increase safety for all victims, enabling them to rebuild their lives and create lasting change.

If you have excellent leadership skills and a background in supporting families affected by domestic abuse, this is an amazing opportunity to make a positive, lasting difference to families living in your community.

At Next Chapter, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing work environment where our people can thrive. We are open, honest and fair, value diversity and always strive to act with courage; challenging injustices and enabling the voices of our survivors to be heard.

We are working towards a future without domestic abuse. If you are approachable, compassionate and eager to help us achieve our goal, this is the role for you.

The Role

As the Senior Family Domestic Abuse Practitioner, you will manage a team to provide specialist domestic abuse support to parents and their children.

- Working with children, young people and families experiencing domestic abuse and other vulnerabilities 
- Managing and developing teams and individuals 
- Working with families under stress
- Managing a caseload of service users with differing needs
- A multi-agency legislative framework
