Female* Adavu support caseworker
Birmingham Methodist District
(0.8 FTE (Full Time Equivalent)- 32 hours a week)
Salary: £18,368 p.a. (initial appointment until December 2021)
Based at: Office in Balsall Heath, Birmingham, with some occasional travel throughout the West Midlands and UK as required. Home working possible by agreement with Management group. This role will also require the support worker to travel to meet with clients and attend appointments across the West Midlands policing area.
Adavu is a project of the Birmingham Methodist District (registered charity 1134167) which responds to modern slavery in the West Midlands. Our main area of work is offering long-term support and advocacy for adult survivors of modern slavery. We currently employ two support workers. See www.adavu.org.uk for further information.
We are seeking to recruit a Support Caseworker:
- To support adult victims/survivors of modern day slavery when facing transition, primarily due to exiting the National Referral Mechanism associated (NRM) initial aftercare, but on occasion, offering support to beneficiaries who have not accessed NRM support but who can be identified as victims or potential victims of modern slavery.
- The Support Caseworker will have responsibility for delivering quality casework services based at Adavu’s offices at the Jericho Foundation, Balsall Heath, Birmingham, but accepting referrals from across the city and the region.
- The post holder will primarily be assisting people on an appointment basis in public places (such as a café) but will also be required to accompany clients to other appointments, or to meet clients in their homes or elsewhere as necessary. An element of the work will involve facilitating a regular client drop-in session which will be a Birmingham venue to be confirmed.
This is to be achieved within the wider context of the work of the Adavu Project.
