Job description

Do you think it is a national disgrace that in England and Wales, two women a week are killed by their partner or ex-partner? Or that one woman in every four will experience domestic violence at some point during her life?

Do you want to work for an organisation that provides a voice for abused women, and plays a vital role in ensuring that life-saving services are in place to support them? If so, then the role of Refuge Worker may be perfect for you.

As Refuge Worker, you will be responsible for providing high quality practical and emotional support to survivors of domestic violence and their children living in our refuges.

This is an exciting and challenging role as you will provide a high quality professional support service to women and children affected by domestic violence who needs to maintain either current or alternative safe accommodation.

You will ensure the smooth running of the refuge, including the admission of survivors of domestic violence to the refuge.

You will also assess and advise on their entitlement to welfare and housing benefits.

You will develop support plans for each resident and aid them to obtain permanent accommodation.

The successful candidate will have evidence of strong casework management skills, good written and verbal communication and an understanding of the importance of maintaining professional boundaries. Knowledge and direct experience of providing support to women is essential as is a current understanding of legislation relating to domestic violence including civil/criminal legislation and welfare rights.

The ability to work as part of an on-call rota is also essential.

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.

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. We offer the first Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) accredited qualification for our profession. As an ever expanding charity we are also able to provide career development opportunities including advancements into management roles across our range of services.

Location: Redbridge

Salary: £22,828 - £26,390 per annum

Interview date: 18th November 2019

An enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certificate will be required for this role.

This post is restricted to women due to the nature of the role. The Occupational Requirement under Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.

Refuge is committed to quality, equality and diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

No agencies please - as a charity we work hard to keep our costs down.
