A Way Out is seeking to recruit an experienced, positive and pro-active individual who can take the service forward with enthusiasm to help ensure that it is fully accessible and inclusive and responsive to the needs of the women we will be working with. The post-holder will lead on the co-ordination of the service to ensure the full inclusion and progression of participants with diverse needs, including but not limited to those with:
- additional learning support
- gender identity and gender expression
- cultural and religious
They are looking for an experienced candidate who can use their initiative, passion and creativity to work with people and organisations in an empowering way. As well as holding a small caseload, the post holder will be required to work effectively with staff across the service to deliver key targets and outcomes. The post-holder will also be required to provide support, advice and guidance to the programme management team to ensure that we remain up to date with legislation and best practice.
Women become involved in the Criminal Justice System for a complex range of reasons. At A Way Out’s they provide trauma and gender informed specialist services and holistic support to women by women, to overcome challenges and address needs, enabling them to successfully move-on from services and live fulfilling, crime free flourishing lives.
They work closely with local community organisations and a wide range of partners to enable women involved in the Criminal Justice System including those who may be serving Community Sentences, serving a custodial sentence, being released from Prison and those subject to Multi-agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) to access existing resources as well as working to build new opportunities. We support women to build upon their strengths and work through any barriers that are preventing them from progressing and achieving their potential.
The role benefits from agile working which will include being office based, delivering within the community and with the possibility of some home working, therefore you will need to be able to work
independently and as a virtual team, under pressure to meet challenging deadlines.
At A Way Out we value a diverse workforce and are keen to recruit people of all ages and from all backgrounds, abilities and ethnicities.
It is an Occupational Requirement that applications for this post are open to women only, as permitted under Schedule 9, Part 1, or the Equality Act 2010. Enhanced DBS checks will be required.
