Team Leader – 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.

We are seeking to recruit to the following post:
Job Title: Team Leader – Specialist Refuges
Job Ref: nia 66
Hours: 35 hours per week – working across Camden & Haringey
Salary: £31,000 – £34,000 dependent on experience and qualification

The service is currently funded until 31st March 2022 with a possibility of further extension.

As Team Leader, you will support the Service Manager to deliver effective and efficient operation of the refuges. You will be based at The Emma Project (Haringey) or at Daria House (Camden) and spend time in both projects. Both refuges provide accommodation for women who are escaping domestic and sexual violence and who use substances problematically. The women who enter the project have frequently been excluded from and/or refused access to other types of refuge provision.

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 and their children to be safer.
