An opportunity has arisen within Glasgow City Council’s ASSIST and Domestic Abuse Service for a Service Manager to join the service on a fixed term basis until 30 September 2021.
ASSIST (Advocacy, Safety Support and Information Services Together) is an accredited Independent Domestic Abuse Advocacy Service, which works closely with statutory and voluntary services to deliver a proactive, rapid and stream lined response to those affected by domestic abuse, and who are interacting with the criminal justice system.
Working in close partnership with Police Scotland to a model that balances risk and safety, ASSISTs ethos of placing the client at the centre of any intervention is crucial. Our Service Managers manage the ASSIST team (including Lead Advocates, Advocacy Workers and Administration Assistants) and the day-to-day operations of the ASSIST service.

An understanding of, or previous experience, of providing a direct service to abuse victims/survivors, including crisis intervention, assessment of risk, safety planning, multi-agency advocacy, support and information would also be advantageous.
Further information regarding the duties and responsibilities of the role, and the essential and desirable requirements candidates should possess can be found within the Job Description & Person Specification document.
The work pattern for this post is 22.5 hours per week, which would be worked across Monday – Friday with the exact days and hours to be agreed with the successful candidate at the point of offer.
The post will be based within one of ASSISTs Hubs, so the postholder could be based at either Eastgate (Glasgow), Dumbarton Police Station, East Kilbride Police Station, Kilmarnock Police Station or Paisley Police Station. Confirmation of location will be provided at the point of offer to the successful candidate.
The position requires membership to the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme (Vulnerable Adults) and a Level 2 Non-Police Personnel Vetting Check, due to co-location with Police Scotland staff at all locations.
The post is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exclusions and Exceptions) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2015. A full list of convictions that must always be disclosed and convictions that should be disclosed subject to rules is available from www.disclosurescotland.co.uk.
We support equality and diversity in the workplace. We particularly welcome male applicants and applicants from a black and minority ethnic background, as both groups are currently under-represented within ASSIST. This statement has been made in line with section 159 of the Equality Act 2010.
Membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme will be essential on taking up appointment.
This post is fixed term for a period up to 30th September 2021.
