Community MARAC Coordinator
Join us and become part of a leading Community Safety team
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
Join us and become part of a leading Community Safety Team, delivering community safety outcomes in a challenging London borough.
You will lead the coordination of the Brent Community MARAC (CMARAC) which is recognised as an example of good practice nationally, as a multi-agency panel meeting which has been created to share information on high-risk cases of vulnerable individuals and to put in place a risk management plan to address the safety and protection of those victims.
Provides a holistic approach and is effective in bringing together teams who may have been working in isolation, and have lacked the oversight of multiagency support to deal with issues and underlying causes. It also increases understanding and awareness of the thresholds, capacity and challenges of other agencies.
The Community MARAC also supports hate crime victims and Brent has the fourth highest number of recorded hate crimes in comparison to the most similar London boroughs in the last 12 months. It is designed to enhance existing arrangements rather than replace them.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with experience in related fields including community safety, safeguarding or health and wellbeing sectors. Someone who drives for national best practice and who is not scared of a challenge in creating new initiatives to help our communities. We hope to attract a candidate with a strong work ethic as our community safety team is always in high demand.
Partnership work is very important for Brent Community Safety, so enhanced partnership and multi-agency working is key experience we hope the candidate can bring to this position.
Can you help us make that difference in our communities? Bring new ideas to ensure community safety? If so, please apply today.
