About this job

Are you an ambitious, creative and influential practitioner who is passionate about reducing the number of children being removed into care by supporting women to bring about change in their lives? Do you have direct experience of working with and affecting change for vulnerable individuals?

If so you could be the person we are looking for!

You will have expertise in a key area such as domestic violence, substance misuse, housing, social care etc and you will have a willingness to learn and develop.

The posts will be initially until July 2020 with the possibility of extension, and secondments from relevant partner agencies will be considered.
