Prior to this, her career for almost 30 years was at the operational level in direct domestic abuse services, managing refuges, developing outreach services and operating strategically across the city of Hull. 

Jacqui is also a qualified practice teacher for undergraduate and postgraduate Social Work students.

Jacqui was key in the creation of a new multi-agency team in Hull, working from one office, with a Specialist DA Police Unit, Children’s Social Workers, Housing Officers, Health Practitioners and Specialist Support workers, which she went on to co-manage. 

 Jacqui supported Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for the Constabulary (HMIC) with inspecting some of their 43 police force areas, which resulted in a recommendation to deliver face-to-face training on domestic abuse and coercive control to all front-line officers.
