Women in Prison is a national charity providing services to women in communities and prison (including women's centres in London and Manchester), and campaigning for radical reductions in the women's prison population. Our vision is for every woman to have access to the kind of specialist trauma-responsive services that we provide, so that she can move forward with her life, based on her own strengths and decisions.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for Head of Women’s Centres and Safeguarding (Maternity Cover). This role will provide leadership to our thriving Women’s Centres in London and Manchester and will be a national point of specialist advice and support for all Women in Prison services regarding safeguarding and risk management.
Could you be the leader we are looking for? If you bring safeguarding expertise and the ability to manage risk safely and proportionally, and are passionate about delivering high quality services for women we want to hear from you! Strong communication and team building skills, a coaching style of management and a deep understanding of the impact of trauma are essential.
We are committed to inclusive working practices, and particularly welcome applications from anyone with lived experience of prison or the criminal justice system and women from Black, Asian and minoritised communities. We welcome applications from anyone regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, heritage, and socio-economic background, and will make any reasonable adjustments.
The role is only open to women, in accordance with the sex-based exemptions of the Equality Act 2010 pursuant to Schedule 9, Part 1.
