BCHA is one of the leading providers of support to survivors on modern day slavery in the South of the UK. Our modern day slavery response team provides both outreach and accommodation to survivors within the national referral mechanism. The team comprises of specialist support workers, managers and administrators. We are looking for a strong, successful and resilient individual to join our team as a Specialist Support Worker. In this role you will provide a high-quality frontline support to those who may have been trafficked, experienced sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, county lines/criminality, unpaid works and other forms of exploitation. You will need empathy and awareness to support those from different cultures and backgrounds.

 

This role is often fast paced and pressurised, having a passion for supporting vulnerable clients to rebuild their lives ensures you will find the role extremely rewarding. This role entails flexible working over a 7 days.

 

There are five main types of exploitation that victims of modern slavery may experience:

  • labour exploitation: victims are forced to work for nothing, low wages or a wage that is kept by their owner; work is involuntary, forced and/or under the threat of a penalty, and the working conditions can be poor
  • sexual exploitation: victims are exploited through non-consensual abuse or another person’s sexuality for the purpose of sexual gratification, financial gain, personal benefit or advantage, or any other non-legitimate purpose
  • domestic servitude: victims are domestic workers who perform a range of household tasks (for example, cooking and cleaning); some live with their employers and have low pay, if any at all
  • criminal exploitation: victims are forced to work under the control of criminals in activities such as forced begging, shoplifting, pickpocketing, cannabis cultivation, drug dealing and financial exploitation
  • organ harvesting: living or deceased victims are recruited, transported or transferred, by threat or force for money, for their organs

 

We are looking for people who really want to make a difference. Our Specialist Support Workers support customers in the following areas;

  • Empowering individuals to make choices and be in control of their own lives
  • Genuine future planning drawing on hopes, strengths, aspirations and goals
  • Nurturing meaningful and positive relationships based on trust
  • Mindfully promoting physical health and mental wellbeing
  • Keeping people safe and building long term resilience
  • Connection to digital and in person communities and networks

 

Apply today for this challenging yet highly rewarding role.
