Looking for a challenging, interesting and rewarding role?

Victim Support is the national charity that helps people affected by crime. We are facing new challenges and opportunities for developing and delivering our services nationwide and are looking for outstanding people with drive and commitment who share our passion for making a difference to the lives of people affected by crime.

The main purpose of this role is to manage services and the project’s two lock fitters for Victim Support’s Home Security, Safer Van programme, which covers the boroughs of Lewisham, Bromley and Bexley. The role will involve receiving referrals to the service, booking appointments and creating job sheets for the project’s lock fitters. The Project Coordinator will have direct line management responsibility for the lock fitters, providing regular supervision, establishing work objectives and carrying out annual performance reviews.

The Project Coordinator will also maintain a comprehensive manual and computerised database system, including data entry and statistical analysis of the project’s performance against targets. The role will require the completion of monthly, quarterly and annual reports on project progress in line with the contractual obligations from our funders and in accordance with Victim Support’s national standards, policies and procedures. Engaging in local events and activities to publicise and promote the service will be an integral part of the role, in addition to developing and maintaining effective professional relationships with partner organisations.

Applicants will have a good understanding of confidentiality and safe working practices and maintenance of records in accordance with the Data Protection Act. In addition, you must be able to demonstrate your active commitment to promoting equal opportunities and diversity. It is also essential you can demonstrate that you are able to work without direct supervision, that you can prioritise your work and deal with competing demands in an organised and methodical manner.

Appointments will be subject to satisfactory checks made by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and may require satisfactory police vetting.
