nia has been delivering services to women, girls and children who have been subjected to sexual and domestic violence and abuse, including prostitution, since 1975. The organisation has three main aims: to provide services for women, girls and children who have experienced men’s violence; contributing to ending male violence against women and girls, and to inform and influence policy and public awareness.
We are seeking to recruit to the following post:
Salary Range: £28,000 – £32,000
Hours: 35 hours per week.

This is a specialist post to support and advocate for women with no recourse to public funds experiencing male violence with a particular focus on enabling their resettlement, independent living and access to, and enforcement of, their rights.
We are looking for a highly organised and self-motivated woman who is passionate about supporting women to rebuild their lives and access their rights after male violence. You will have a can- do approach, be determined to prioritise women and be able to articulate your commitment to nia’s feminist approach with a particular understanding of how race and sex intersect in no recourse cases. Your values, attitudes and abilities are as important as your experience.
