You’re well-organised, have great administrative and office iT skills, work well as part of a team and enjoy serving the public. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Support Officer.
Right now, we’re looking for someone like you to join our Drive Project that operates across two West Midlands local authority areas. Drive is a new response to domestic abuse that aims to reduce the number of child and adult victims of domestic abuse by disrupting and changing perpetrator behaviour. But, we need your help. One Day One Conversation (ODOC) is a multiagency perpetrator and victim focused meeting led by the police to manage offenders. Your role will be to support the effective delivery of these meetings and the coordinated response to perpetrators of domestic abuse in West Midlands PTF site. We’ll also rely on you to carry out administrative duties like word processing, collating data and keeping records. Responding to enquiries, including complex queries, will be important too, as will organising and scheduling events and quality assuring various internal processes. And, when it comes to undertaking research or presenting a positive image of the service both internally and externally, again, we’ll count on you.
To succeed, you’ll need a minimum of 5 GCSEs or equivalent, including Maths, English and IT. We’ll also be looking for proficiency using Microsoft Office applications and a proven ability to deal efficiently and effectively with a high volume of work. Flexible, adaptable and comfortable working in a pressurised environment, you have excellent verbal and written communication skills and a flair for report writing. What’s more, you're a creative problem solver and positive decision maker, have lots of initiative and always act with integrity. Above all, you’re focused on what matters to the public and keen to serve their best interests. An understanding of risk and risk management, the dynamics and behaviours relating to the perpetration of domestic abuse and/or knowledge of statutory and non-statutory offender management, would be an advantage.
