Anti-Social Behaviour Community Development Officer

The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea Council
Kensington and Chelsea, London (Greater)
£41,967 - £50,088 per annum
Closing date
7 Jan 2024

Play a key role in finding solutions to the problems of Anti-Social Behaviour

At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and businesses at the heart of everything we do, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. Committed to acting with openness, honesty, compassion and humility, we aim to listen and understand in a way that is respectful, encourages involvement and meets the needs of all our communities.

The Role:

For many of our residents, Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) is a huge concern, so finding solutions to the problems it causes is one of our top priorities. Join us in this challenging role and you’ll go out into our communities and focus on improving the lives of everyone who lives and works in Kensington and Chelsea by supporting their efforts to co-design and co-deliver local safety solutions. Helping to enhance the capacity and capabilities of the voluntary and community sector, faith organisations, registered providers, businesses, resident associations, youth services, schools and other educational establishments to collaborate and respond to ASB issues, you’ll help to develop our problem-solving processes, and ensure activities are intelligence-led, evidence-based and effective.

But your work won’t stop here – you’ll also lead and coordinate multi-agency case management processes for a small number of complex and entrenched ABS cases, develop networks and partnerships through the communities you work with, and act as an advocate for seldom heard voices. Supporting equality, diversity and inclusion within the Council through proactive resident and stakeholder engagement, you’ll also use all your intelligence gathering skills to bring about positive change to the communities you work with.

Due to the nature of this role, you will be expected to be based on-site across the borough at least 4 days per week.

About You:

To be a success in this role you’ll have relevant work experience in community safety, crime prevention, safeguarding, ASB or a similar area, an in-depth understanding of the related issues that impact upon communities, and knowledge of the legislation and powers available to address them. With up-to-date knowledge of current approaches to community participation, and a track record of working in partnership with residents and groups to deliver successful development activities and projects, you’ll also have experience of advocacy on behalf of those whose voices are seldom heard.

With well-developed knowledge of the issues that affect different communities and the impact they have, we’ll expect you to have experience of working with victims and witnesses, and the ability to devise, coordinate and implement multi-agency and victim-led action plans to enhance safety and reduce re-victimisation. You’ll have a excellent understanding of local government, the communities it serves and the services it provides, political sensitivity and experience of working with ward Councillors. A confident influencer and negotiator with the skills to plan and deliver projects, you’ll also have a good understanding of equality, diversity and intersectionality, and how these can impact on residents’ lives and the delivery of services.

Join us, and you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays. And as a key member of our team, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities for development and progression within our organisation.
