Job description

nia has been delivering services to women, girls and children who have been subjected to sexual and domestic violence and abuse, including prostitution, since 1975. The organisation has three main aims: to provide services for women, girls and children who have experienced men’s violence; contributing to ending male violence against women and girls, and to inform and influence policy and public awareness.

We are delighted to receive funding from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to develop The Anita Project. The Anita Project has been devised to bring about long-term sustainable change for women facing multiple disadvantage and who are involved in prostitution in London. This service will build on nia’s existing work to support women to exit prostitution.

 

Hours:                   35 hours

Salary:                   £26,000- £29,000 (dependent on qualification & experience)

This post is currently funded until 31 March 2022. It is our policy to try to offer staff alternative posts in the organisation if funding for the post they are filling ends. 

This is an exciting new post focussing on supporting women to exit prostitution. The service builds on our existing work to support women involved in prostitution in east London. The post holder will provide wide-ranging support with a particular focus on supporting women using drug and alcohol services, who are abused through ‘survival sex’, Romanian women who are significantly over-represented amongst women accessing the current services and women who are involved in off-street prostitution. The post will involve fortnightly night time outreach to ensure that the service is accessible to women who are currently involved in prostitution.

We are looking for a highly organised and self- motivated woman who is passionate about supporting other women to rebuild their lives after prostitution. You’ll have a ‘can-do’ approach, be passionate about prioritising women and be committed to nia’s feminist approach. Your values, attitude and abilities are as important as your experience. CV’s will not be accepted.

Closing Date:                   10am, 16 November 2020                              

Interview dates:               25 November 2020
