Do you have excellent organisation skills and a person focused approach?

Are you looking to gain experience in a challenging, and incredibly rewarding environment?

We are looking for a committed individual to help manage the development of new and improved services, alongside supporting the establishment, management and evaluation of the Domestic Abuse Supported Accommodation Programme.

Covid and subsequent lockdowns have had a huge impact on the incidence of domestic abuse, and thanks to new and ongoing Government funding we have the ability to rethink the way that services are provided and, by ensuring that victims and survivors are at the very heart of what we do to, improve outcomes.

You will have a proven ability of creating and developing relationships across a wide range of partners and stakeholders, coupled with knowledge and experience supporting projects or programmes of change using formal project management methodology, including the ability to analyse and present information.

This is a real opportunity to help shape much needed vital support to some of the most vulnerable people that we serve, working within the County Council, but also across multiple partners.

If you are interested you can contact Derek Houston ( for an informal chat about the role.
