Job description

The Organisation

nia has been delivering services to women, girls and children who have experienced domestic and sexual violence 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.

nia is an approved member of Rape Crisis England and Wales, an umbrella organisation supporting Rape Crisis Centres across the country. Rape Crisis is completely independent of the government and the criminal justice system

The ISVA Service

The ISVA provides proactive support and advocacy service to female survivors of sexual violence who are engaging with the criminal justice system. The service works across East London.

The Role

We are seeking to recruit 2 x ISVAs

  • One post to work with all female victims of sexual violence
  • One post to work with female victims of sexual violence who are multiply disadvantaged.

The work of the two posts will be very similar; however the multiply disadvantaged ISVA will work with a smaller number of more ’complex’ cases. Women and girls may have needs that may include those relating to substance use, homelessness, immigration, leaving care, disability, age, so-called honour-based violence. We particularly welcome applications from Black and Minoritised women. In addition, in recognition of the diversity of languages spoken across East London, we are seeking applications from women who can speak any of the following languages: Bengali, Gujarati, Urdu or Polish.

CV’s will not be accepted.  

Closing Date:                    10am, 21st December 2020      

Interview Date:                  4 January 2021                        

The post is subject to an enhanced vetting and barring check and is open to women only. Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR), Schedule 9 (Work; Exceptions), Part 1 (Occupational Requirements), of the Equality Act (2010) applies.
