Community MARAC Coordinator
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.
You will lead on the development of the Community MARAC Panel. The Community MARAC coordinates multi agency risk management plans on high risk cases of vulnerable individuals whose personal safety is at risk and who do not meet Adult Safeguarding thresholds. The panel will implement support packages for vulnerable adults who are victims of anti social behaviour (ASB); victims of hate crime, those at risk of fire related incidents, those at risk of financial abuse/fraud, people who are repeat callers to services and are vulnerable and people whose properties are taken over for drug misuse. Alongside working with partners in the Local Authority and the Police you will develop links with the voluntary sector, resident and community groups to explore community based solutions to tackling ASB.
We are seeking someone who has a good understanding of crime, crime reduction and the issues surrounding community safety and partnership working with substantial experience of directly related work/roles or suitable qualification at degree level. You will have experience of effective partnership working within the public and voluntary sector, local residents, VCS, public sector organisations and communities of interest to develop and support projects in community resilience, co-production, community cohesion, active citizenship and capacity building. Excellent organisational skills and ability to work under pressure, including meeting conflicting deadlines, managing resources and managing a number of complex tasks simultaneously is essential. You will also have the ability to work well both as an individual and as part of a team and be able to demonstrate creativity innovation and initiative to enhance service delivery.
