Women and Girls Network (WGN) is looking for an experienced and dynamic individual to lead and manage our multidisciplinary rape crisis team during this temporary maternity cover.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of working at senior management level and of managing a range of services as well as a multidisciplinary staff team. The successful candidate will have excellent knowledge of the issues facing women and girls affected by sexual violence in the context of their lives, the criminal justice system, support services and policy frameworks.

This is a unique and invaluable opportunity for a highly motivated individual to lead one of our flagship services and to work alongside a highly skilled staff and senior leadership team. We are looking for someone who is able to offer support and stability during this interim phase but also someone who has the passion, skills and vision to help us plan for the future.

If you’re looking to make impact and are committed to challenging inequality and working to eradicate violence against women and girls within a women led, feminist organisation then we would welcome your application.

WGN’s employee benefits include 3% pension contribution, enhanced annual leave entitlement, excellent training and development opportunities and an Employee Assistance Programme.

We welcome and encourage applications from women of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic communities.

Applicants who do not receive a response to their application within 2 weeks of the closing date should assume it has not been successful on this occasion.
