Service Manager – Specialist Refuges

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.

The Emma Project and Daria House are specialist services providing refuge and support services to women who have been subjected to domestic and/or sexual violence and abuse, including women who have been sexually exploited, including through prostitution and who also use substances problematically. The service is currently funded until 31st March 2022 with a possibility of further extension.

Job Title: Service Manager – Specialist Refuges
Job Ref: nia 019
Hours: 35hrs/week working across Camden & Haringey
Salary: £35,000 – £38,000 dependent on experience and qualification

As Service Manager, you will be responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the refuges, resettlement and outreach services. You will be based at The Emma Project (Haringey) or at Daria House (Camden) and spend time in both projects.

We’re looking for a highly organised and self-motivated woman who is passionate about ending violence against women, girls and children. You’ll have a ‘can-do’ approach and demonstrable commitment to nia’s feminist approach to supporting women.
