Role

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of young female survivors of sexual abuse? Could you help them develop the skills needed to cope with what has happened to them and build an independent life and positive future?

Are you passionate about the eradication of Men’s Violence against Women and Girls and women's homelessness from a feminist perspective?

As a TS4S Project Worker with SAY Women, you will be able to do this for the young women in our service. With at least two years’ experience of working within the VAW&G field or women’s homelessness, you will be helping young women who have experienced sexual abuse or any form of sexual violence to hold on to their own tenancies. Your experience of providing one-to-one, trauma-informed sessions and interventions, incorporating a feminist and gendered analysis, will help you provide this support.

Your knowledge of how sexual abuse and violence impacts on housing and homelessness in young women will be vital in supporting and advocating for them, as will any knowledge you have on Housing First and the mental health issues and coping strategies used by survivors.

You will help to drive referrals to the service as well as continuing its development, so it would be useful if you have skills in sustaining and developing small projects. A full driving licence and access to a car will also be useful.

When you join SAY Women, you join a community providing a warm and welcoming environment for all of our staff and young women. Our values run through every aspect of our attitude, approach and service provision, empowering our young women and staff with Courage, Compassion and Connection.

In return for your passion and dedication, we provide great opportunities for your personal training and development as well as a generous pension package and annual leave allowance.
