Come join our team working to help change the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in society. Ranked 2023 Q4 by Best Companies as the 8th best charity to work for in the UK, Medaille Trust is one of the UK’s leading charities in the fight against modern slavery. Our innovative model is based on three principles: Prevent, Protect and Pursue. We are one of the UK’s largest providers of survivor services, with ten safehouses and six outreach hubs, staffed round the clock by specialist staff, working with more than 600 men, women and dependent children each year. We work to raise awareness in the UK and to provide preventive work in source countries. Our Pursue work helps survivors to engage with police and within the legal system to seek justice and to secure convictions against their perpetrators. This role is based in a safe house in the Halton area.
We are seeking a confident and experienced Modern Slavery Case Worker with a wide range of skills and importantly, a ‘can do’ approach. As the Modern Slavery Case Worker, you will provide practical and emotional support to potential victims of modern slavery in the service, where applicable in a given geographic area. You will undertake daily duties to ensure the smooth running of the service. The role will also involve assisting clients with increasing practical skills and self-confidence, to empower and enable independent and safe living.
This service is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week which means you will be required to be on call. Applicants must also be willing to work flexibly including evenings, weekends, and bank holidays. You must have experience of working with vulnerable adults, the ability to work within a ‘risk associated’ environment and ideally experience of working within a residential or community setting with non-UK citizens.
Relevant social care qualifications or suitable experience of supporting vulnerable people is essential.
This is a challenging but important and rewarding job because our team members know they are working hard to help transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable people.
