Job opportunity with London's Violence Reduction Unit

The opportunity

Director of Violence Reduction Unit

Tackling violent crime is a key priority for the Mayor.

Violent crime has been rising across the country since 2014, particularly in large Metropolitan cities

On 18 September the Mayor of London announced the setup of a new Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) to tackle the causes of violence in London, building on the work already underway as part of the Mayor’s Knife Crime Strategy. The causes of violent crime are extremely complex, involving a variety of deep-seated societal problems such as poverty, social alienation, mental ill health and a lack of opportunity. The solution to violent crime will therefore require a complex, holistic and varied long term approach.

The new VRU will take a public health approach to tackling violent crime. In practice, this means intervening at critical moments in a young person’s life; for example, if they have suffered trauma or been excluded from school. This approach has proved highly successful in cities across the world – most recently in the UK the public health approach has been credited with contributing towards a halving of the murder rate in Glasgow between 2004 and 2017.

The unit is a new London partnership involving specialists from across the city, including health, police, criminal justice partners, local government and communities. At the Unit’s heart is the aim of better understanding the risk factors in early life that can lead to violence and establish long-term approaches that address these factors. This work will happen at all levels in the city by working with boroughs, local police Basic Command Units, the health service, criminal justice agencies and communities. This is the first time that such an approach has been taken in a city as large, and as prominent on the world stage as London.

Of critical importance for the post will be establishing and maintaining effective relationships with partner organisations and communities including young people. The successful applicant must have a natural ability to empathise with those on the front line dealing with violence and be able to inspire organisational and behavioural change across a wide range of stakeholders. This role offers the opportunity of implementing a public health approach to violence on an unprecedented scale and will act as a national, or even international, centre of excellence.

New Report 'Working Well' - Young People's experience of Job Centre Services

Source By: 4in10

4in10 report on job centres

 New report 'Working well', published last Friday together with Young Women’s Trust, draws attention to the fact that job centres are not working well to support young jobseekers; and that continuing to roll out Universal Credit, as it stands, will draw many families - whether in work or out – into a punitive inflexible system in job centres that is doing more harm than good. Instead of being a centre of support, job centres are increasingly a place of enforcement.
