Empowerment Worker (Full Time)

Salary: Band  5c  £25,064 to £26,780 per annum depending on experience

Location: Oxford

Closing date: 18/01/2019

Are you an inspiring woman with experience of working with girls and young women? We are recruiting an experienced Empowerment Worker to help develop OSARCC’s next stage of growth, expanding our Support, Empower, Educate (SEE) services to young women and girls aged 14 – 18, to enable us to increase the reach of our support, education, and preventative work. You will have experience of delivering outcomes based support, and working within an empowerment model to ensure young women and girls can access the support required. With experience of delivering face-to-face support services to young people, you will help us ensure that young women and girls are engaged through the project development and that their voices directly inform service development.  You will have a strong commitment to working within a feminist collective ethos, in the violence against women and girls sector.

The SEE project is a Big Lottery funded project which aims to provide holistic support to young women and girls who have experienced sexual violence. The project works collaboratively with local partner agencies, expanding the local provision to young women and girls across Oxfordshire. The project worker will therefore be expected to work with the Project Coordinator to enable the expansion of the project as appropriate.

This role is subject to receiving Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks and to a six month probationary period.
