The aim of our work is to increase life opportunities to enable those that are vulnerable to move away from the risk of violence and into safe, stable and happier futures.
We are looking for a committed individual to provide outreach support to victims of human trafficking and modern slavery (HTMS) who are living in the wider community. The support will be provided to clients living in the North East and the worker will be based in Newcastle.
You should be aware of the realities and impacts of HTMS, the legislation affecting this group and help identify agencies and individuals who could provide appropriate support.
You should have excellent IT skills and experience of working with management information systems/processes would be an advantage. Excellent communication skills are essential.
Experience of working with BAMER groups in a professional or voluntary capacity or an evidence of passion for and commitment to support BAMER clients is desirable.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who would like to develop their support and engagement skills within BAMER communities and development skills across a range of sectors to support a leading local charity and improve the quality of life of some of the UK’s most vulnerable women and children.
