Adavu is a project of the Birmingham Methodist District which responds to modern slavery in the West Midlands. The main area of work is offering long-term support and advocacy for adult survivors of modern slavery. The charity would like to invite applications for a Female Support Caseworker.
The post carries a salary of £18,368 per annum (initial appointment until December 2021) for a 32 hour week. The post holder will be based in Balsall Heath, Birmingham, but will be required to travel to meet with clients and attend appointments across the West Midlands policing area.
Aspects of the role include:
• 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.
