You may already be working in the women’s sector in a similar voluntary sector role, but equally you may come from related fields; perhaps criminal justice, welfare to work, housing or social care.
Whatever your background, you’ll need to hit the ground running! The role is hugely rewarding, but busy and demanding so you’ll need to be able to manage your time well, be able to keep a calm head and will already have a good knowledge of issues affecting women who have or are experiencing domestic abuse, safeguarding, social care procedures and relevant legislation.
