We have an exciting opportunity to join our Support and Development Directorate in this role to lead Clinks’ race and justice network. This recently established network is made up of over 60 voluntary sector organisations that are working to support racially minoritised people in the criminal justice system.
The Race and Justice Network Coordinator is responsible for leading and co-ordinating Clinks’ work which aims to provide support to, and strengthen the voice of, specialist organisations led by and for those providing services designed specifically for racially minoritised people in the criminal justice system and their families.
The Coordinator will work with the organisations that make up the race and justice network, as well as grow the number of organisations actively involved, to ensure we are understanding and meeting their needs, sharing their knowledge, and amplifying their voices to improve policy and practice.
The Coordinator will need to understand relevant structures and build relationships with key partners across sectors. They will engage with government priorities by supporting, promoting, and representing specialist organisations that are part of the race and justice network. They will identify voluntary sector priorities and ways in which Clinks can address these. The post holder will work independently and with other Clinks staff to deliver events, training, and support voluntary sector engagement that promotes race equality and addresses racial disparity and other concerns relating to race and criminal justice.
