We are looking for a Domestic Abuse Services Practitioner with experience and knowledge in working with perpetrators of domestic abuse.

You will play a key role in the development and delivery of a range of established and innovative interventions and projects. Part of the role will consist of working directly with perpetrators of domestic abuse, including suitability and risk assessments, delivery of interventions, facilitation of group programmes, risk identification, information sharing and preparation of reports for courts and other agencies.

Additionally, you will spend some of your time co-locating with other agencies, sharing your expertise and knowledge in perpetrator work, as part of an exciting new pilot.

For this role is it essential that you have previously worked with perpetrators of domestic abuse. Experience of delivering interventions to perpetrators is desirable; however, we will consider applications from candidates who demonstrate an aptitude for the role.

We encourage growth and self-awareness within this post.

Hampton Trust is a leading domestic abuse charity with a focus on tackling the root cause of domestic abuse and criminal behaviour.  We pride ourselves on being innovators in our field, highlighting gaps in service and testing new approaches.

In recent years we have expanded our reach from being a locally based Hampshire charity to now delivering across nine UK police forces. Earlier this year, our work featured in a BBC documentary called Home Truths, exploring Ian Wright’s experience of domestic abuse as child.

This is an exciting time for the organisation with potential to expand our interventions in other areas of the country.
