As a Hub Caseworker you will provide one-off and short term emotional, practical and advocacy support for self-identifying women, girls and non-binary people who have experienced any form of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). You will be providing advice, information and support over the phone and via our web-chat and linking survivors with support that is right for them. You will also provide consultation and advice to professionals who are working with cases involving VAWG.  

The Advice team work from a woman-centred, trauma informed and survivor led integrated approach, ensuring individualised support that is rooted in empowerment and best practice. The work is delivered through a commitment to an anti-oppressive, feminist framework that strives to address additional barriers and meet the diverse range of survivors needs, understanding the specific support needs of each survivor.

If you have the required skills then we would love to hear from you.

We welcome and encourage applications from women of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic communities.

We provide clinical supervision, access to an on-going CPD programme and the opportunity to work in a leading multi-cultural feminist organisation. WGN’s employee benefits include: 3% pension contribution, enhanced leave entitlement and an Employee Assistance Programme.
