As part of a new pilot sexual violence casework project that will support survivors of sexual violence in London, Women and Girls Network is looking for an experienced and dynamic practitioner to play a pivotal role in developing and delivering an innovative practical and emotional support provision.

The SV Caseworker will ensure survivors are able to fully explore their rights, options and entitlements safely, and make informed choices about their future. The SV Caseworker will manage a caseload, as well as provide one off advice sessions for survivors requiring immediate support.

Working from a woman-centred, trauma-informed and survivor-led integrated approach the SV Caseworker will provide individualised care pathways that are rooted in empowerment and good practice. The work will be delivered through a commitment to an intersectional, anti-oppressive, Black-feminist framework that strives to address additional barriers and meet the diverse range of survivors’ needs, whilst understanding and responding to each survivors individual support needs.

The successful candidate will have specialist knowledge in sexual violence, have frontline experience of supporting survivors and be able to provide holistic support that is effective and transformative. They will be an exceptional communicator, have strong IT skills and the ability to work effectively independently as well as part of a team within a fast paced role.
