Hampton Trust is one of the most respected and innovative UK providers of work in the field of domestic abuse and criminal justice. We are committed to rebuilding lives by addressing the root cause of domestic abuse and criminality.

We are recruiting for a Domestic Abuse Drive Case Manager to join our Drive team.

Drive is an intervention that works to protect victims of domestic abuse by challenging and changing the behaviour of high harm, high risk and serial perpetrators.

The Hampton Trust has been appointed to deliver this intervention on behalf of Dorset Police in association with Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner.

As a case manager you will be allocated to areas in Dorset, although you will be expected to cover other areas due to staff leave for example.


Position:             Domestic Abuse Case Manager

Reports to:         Drive Service Manager

Hours:                  37.5 Hours a week

Salary:                 27,000 – 28,000 pa (dependent on experience)

Location:             Dorset

Travel:                 You will be required to travel extensively throughout Dorset

Contract:             Contract end September 2021 (continuation dependent on funding)

Aim of the post

The Case Manager will strive to make contact and work on a one to one basis with perpetrators whose victims have been identified as high risk at MARAC/HRDA or harmful and serial perpetrators through police avenues to pro-actively secure engagement, influence attitudinal and behavioural change and link to complementary services. To do this, the Case Manager will work with existing agencies in each area to implement strategic individual intervention plans to address identified needs and risks and promote understanding of the impact of abusive behaviours.

Throughout the intervention the Case Manager will work closely with the local IDVA service to review risk, feed into safety plans, and improve outcomes for all parties involved.

The Case Manager will be responsible over the long term for delivering outcomes, working for typically 10 months to achieve behaviour change with each service user.

You will:

  • Manage a caseload focussing on high harm, high risk and serial perpetrators to provide an assertive, medium to long term service, based on thorough assessment and individual support planning.
  • Maintain a proactive response to service users, continuously providing positive options for behaviour change throughout the service user’s time in the Drive project.
  • Use a combination of motivational work, relationship building and a broad range of therapeutic skills to engage service users to address their abusive behaviour
  • Motivate and support service users to address the broad range of needs that may contribute to the risk that they pose to others or act as barrier for them in addressing that risk e.g. housing, substance use etc.

We would welcome applicants who would like to join us on either a fixed term contract or through a secondment arrangement.  For secondments, candidates must be supported by their current employer and their current employer must be willing to enter into an agreement with Hampton Trust to be released for the duration of the secondment, failure to do so will result in the application being withdrawn.
