Job description

Refuge is the UK’s largest provider of specialist services for victims of all forms of gender-based violence (domestic, sexual, so called ‘honour’ violence, modern slavery and human trafficking, prostitution, forced marriage, stalking and FGM). Every day we support over 6,000 women and children in our national network of services.  These include Independent Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence Advocacy services (IDVAs/ISVAs and IGVAs), community outreach, specialist refuge accommodation, sanctuary services, culturally-specific services and the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline (run in partnership between Refuge and Women’s Aid). We advise Government and lobby hard to keep violence against women and girls high on the public agenda. We run award-winning prevention and public education campaigns, manage a busy press office and website, and we are an accredited training provider. We give a voice to the voiceless.

In this fast paced and well established service for Eastern European women and children, you will provide high quality personal welfare support for survivors of gender based violence, including domestic and sexual violence, modern slavery and prostitution. You will work with survivors from the point of crisis, assisting them through civil and criminal justice systems in Brent, Ealing and Hounslow and offering intensive support to ensure short-term and long-term safety.

You will support the service manager in building sustainable referral pathways and joint working protocols with a range of partners working with survivors of gender-based violence, including community housing organizations, BAMER support groups, health, substance misuse, law-enforcement agencies and other voluntary and statutory organizations.

You will have proven experience of providing direct emotional and practical support to women as well as up-to-date knowledge of legislation relating to survivors of gender-based violence. You will have excellent casework skills, good written and verbal communication skills, clear professional boundaries and be a proactive team player.

You will be Polish or Albanian or Russian speaker.

All candidates must demonstrate a commitment to the feminist values of empowerment and equality which underpin all of our work. Successful applicants will be expected to work within Refuge’s Values and Behaviour Framework and demonstrate these in their everyday work.

Competitive salary offering annual progression within points of the salary grade, 28 days annual leave increasing to 30 days, pension scheme with People’s pension that includes a 6% Employer contribution, comprehensive EAP.

Refuge is proud to be a leader in its field and an employer of choice with leading edge systems for supervision, quality management and development. Other benefits include 28 days holiday, pension scheme, an employee assistance programme and a childcare voucher scheme.

Please visit Refuge’s website for further details and other opportunities.
