We are looking for full-time workers although part-time applicants may also be considered.

You will have an opportunity to play a key role in developing DVIP’s violence prevention services, working in partnership with other agencies to deliver effective community responses to domestic violence. You will spend regular days co-located within a referring agency, usually Children’s Services, working as a DV specialist to support other professionals with their risk assessment and management of families experiencing abuse. You will be able to work some weekday evenings.
You will deliver training to other agencies and provide support to sessional group workers and volunteers. You must have experience of providing one-to-one and groupwork interventions with men and of working with other agencies. You will have an understanding of the nature and effects of domestic violence, the relevance of gender and power in intimate partner violence and its impact upon women and children.
