Women and Girls Network (WGN) is looking for an experienced and dynamic Caseworker to join our highly successful Advice Service.
As a Caseworker you will work alongside self-identifying women, girls and non-binary people who have experienced any form of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), providing medium and long-term practical, emotional and advocacy support. You will amplify survivors’ voices and create a non-judgemental and validating space where survivors are free to be their authentic selves, safely explore their rights, options and impact of their experiences, and make informed choices about their future. You will manage a caseload, as well as provide one off advice for survivors and professionals requiring immediate support.
The Advice Service provides a trauma-informed, intersectional, woman-centred, rights and strengths based advocacy and advice that supports survivors on their unique journey of healing and growth. 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. We are passionate about social justice and being part of dismantling systems and structures which oppress survivors, and Advice Caseworkers play a key role in identifying current issues affecting survivors in London and opportunities for change.
The ideal candidate will be experienced in providing advocacy support, have an excellent insight into the needs of survivors of VAWG and be innovative. This is a unique opportunity for an exceptional practitioner to join one of the leading specialist organisation within the women sector, and play a pivotal role in the development and delivery of a service which improves responses, access and support for survivors of VAWG in London. If you have the required skills and are passionate about supporting survivors 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.
