Clean Break uses theatre to keep the subject of women in prison on the cultural radar, helping to reveal the damage caused by the failures of the criminal justice system. Through our unique work, we raise difficult questions, inspire debate, and help to effect profound and positive change in the lives of women with experience of the criminal justice system.
We are looking for a compassionate, organised Admin & Support Worker to provide emotional and practical support to our Members, and administrative support to ensure the successful delivery and evaluation of our Members and Outreach Programmes.
Around 50-70 Members are actively engaged across Clean Break’s work at any time, with the majority participating in our core Members Programme. You’ll ensure they have the best possible access to our activities, be it online, in our building or in other venues, and work with them to understand any access or engagement issues.
Under the guidance of our Support Manager, you’ll also work with Members to support their mental health, drug/alcohol, financial, emotional, welfare and education/career needs. And you’ll provide this support in a combination of ways: through one-to-one support, assessment, action planning, partnership building / signposting and any other appropriate support measures.
You’ll bring recent experience of providing direct support for vulnerable women and young adults using a trauma-informed approach. You’ll know how to work across complex needs and be skilled at diffusing challenging situations when necessary. And you’ll have excellent admin skills, ensuring we have effective admin and communication systems and insightful, accurate data to evaluate the impact of our work.
You don’t need to have an arts qualification, or a university degree or college education, to work with us.
Because our work is about highlighting women’s experiences and providing gender-specific services to women, all of our positions are open to women only (exempt under Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, part 1).
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
