About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to join our Population Health team which works within Tameside MBC and has a strong role across the Tameside & Glossop Strategic Commission. The main purpose of this role is to support Tameside in meeting new duties outlined in the Domestic Abuse Act (2021). The role will support the Strategic Domestic Abuse Manager to implement the new domestic abuse strategy and support commissioning activity relating to the new statutory duty to provide support to victims of abuse and their children, in safe accommodation.
The long term vision for Tameside is that our residents should be able to realise their full potential and enjoy the best quality of life in a healthy, safe, prosperous and sustainable environment. As a consequence, domestic abuse is a key priority for the local authority as we hope to achieve better health and wellbeing outcomes for victims of domestic abuse.
This post will support the delivery of Tameside’s domestic abuse strategy and compliance with the Domestic Abuse Act 2021. The role will have a range of responsibilities including supporting wider workforce development, working collaboratively with partners across Greater Manchester and supporting commissioning activity.
We are seeking an appropriately qualified professional with experience of working in the domestic abuse or Violence Against Women and Girls sector and delivering innovative projects to improve outcomes for victims of abuse and children or perpetrators of abuse.
You will have excellent project delivery, communication and analytical skills as well as passion and energy to support major transformation in the response to domestic abuse in Tameside.
The post holder will have the opportunity to support programmes of work within the Population Health Team, particularly around Health Improvement and additional vulnerabilities. Additionally, as domestic abuse is a cross-cutting issue, there will be opportunities to support work across the local authority and health system on projects to improve outcomes for victims of domestic abuse.
You will have a high level of motivation and be well organised. You must also have the ability to communicate effectively within diverse settings, to a range of audiences, including victim-survivors. There will also be a requirement for some flexibility in the role in terms of the duties undertaken.
