It’s timely, in the week of International Women’s Day 2019 and our 25th anniversary year, that WAITS is seeking to recruit full and part time Domestic Abuse Resettlement Workers.

We want to hear from friendly, compassionate, team players (because at WAITS we support each other as well as the women we work with). You will have experience of working with women who have suffered domestic abuse and you understand the needs of women offenders who have experienced domestic abuse and coercive control, currently going through the criminal justice system.

We currently have opportunities for:

Domestic Abuse Resettlement Workers 
– Salary £23,109 pro-rata per annum
Closing date: 18 March 2019

The successful candidate will have a minimum of 12 months experience of working with this client group, be savvy at using the Lamplight database, have strong casework management skills, good written and verbal communication and an understanding of the importance of maintaining professional boundaries.

Knowledge and direct experience of providing support to women is essential as is a current understanding of legislation relating to domestic violence including civil/criminal legislation and welfare rights. The ability to work as part of an out of hours telephone on-call rota is also essential.

We are an employer of integrity. You will receive regular supervision, quality management and development. Other benefits include 28 days holiday, pension scheme, and superb colleagues and volunteers to work with.
