Job description

Refuge is the UK’s largest provider of specialist services for victims of all forms of gender-based violence (domestic, sexual, so called ‘honour’ violence, modern slavery and human trafficking, prostitution, forced marriage, stalking and FGM). Every day we support over 6,000 women and children in our national network of services.  These include Independent Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence Advocacy services (IDVAs/ISVAs and IGVAs), community outreach, specialist refuge accommodation, sanctuary services, culturally-specific services and the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline. We advise Government and lobby hard to keep violence against women and girls high on the public agenda. We run award-winning prevention and public education campaigns, manage a busy press office and website, and we are an accredited training provider. We give a voice to the voiceless.

We are recruiting for a children’s support worker to work on a fixed term contract supporting children and their mothers who are living in our refuges escaping domestic violence and other forms of violence and abuse

We are looking to recruit a female* candidate with experience in working with children and a recognised qualification such as an NNEB, QCF or NVQ level 3.  You will be responsible for organising and providing play activities for children and will work closely with location workers to provide practical information and assistance to women about local services for children, such as play schemes, nursery or schools.

The successful candidate will be able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team supporting women and children escaping domestic violence and other forms of violence against women and girls.  You will have good communication and team work skills and be able to use your own initiative.  You will show strong organisational and administration skills. 

The ability to build a rapport and trust with children and their mothers is essential in this work. Experience of supporting children and families who have experienced domestic violence or other forms of violence against women and girls is desirable.

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.

Competitive salary offering annual progression within points of the salary grade, 28 days annual leave increasing to 30 days, pension scheme with People’s pension that includes a 6% Employer contribution, comprehensive EAP.
