Community Safety Business Manager 

37 hours per week - Permanent 

£36,922 - £42,821

County Hall, Dorchester 

The Council’s Community Safety Team works across the organisation and with partners to tackle key community safety issues such as domestic abuse, modern slavery and sexual offences.

What you will be doing

We’re looking to recruit a Business Manager to join the Team, manage several areas of work and lead on Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs).

The role involves delivering work across numerous themes, driving policy and strategy, providing expert advice and developing and maintaining effective working relationships within the Council and with partners.

About you

You will have experience of managing complex areas of work, have a keen eye for detail, be confident working with colleagues and partners at a senior level and competent at writing reports and giving presentations.

You will join a small team working to reduce crime and create safer communities.

Working at Dorset Council

This is a unique opportunity to join a brand new council in Dorset – home to the spectacular Jurassic Coast and thriving market towns and villages with a strong sense of community and identity. 

On 1 April 2019, five district and borough councils and the county council were replaced by the new Dorset Council which will deliver more efficient, accessible and modern public services.  

You will have the opportunity to build your career in a modern, flexible and inclusive organisation, and this is an exciting time to join – at the start of our journey together.
