Since its’ formation in 1993, GEWA has been successfully managed via a feminist Collective. The Board, appointed in 2008, has recently taken the decision to appoint a Manager to oversee the day to day management of all aspects of our service.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced domestic violence and abuse specialist to manage a small, dedicated team and to ensure delivery of a range of projects and programmes.
You will be passionate about empowering women and children exposed to domestic violence and abuse to be safe and to achieve lasting change. You will have the experience and skills to support and nurture staff and volunteers to deliver quality, innovative and inclusive services that are shaped to meet the multiple and complex needs of our service-users.
This post is available for an initial period of 12 months, however, it is expected to continue subject to available funding.
Glasgow East Women’s Aid is a small charity delivering a range of high quality services to prevent and respond to domestic violence and abuse against women and children living within the East End of Glasgow. The role of the Trauma, Abuse and Addictions Worker is to support women who are experiencing co-occurring domestic abuse and substance misuse issues. This is a new role for Glasgow East Women’s Aid (GEWA). GEWA is seeking an individual with a working knowledge of domestic abuse and substance misuse to support this vulnerable group of service users.
Glasgow East Women’s Aid is run by women for women and therefore recruitment is restricted to women applicants under the Equality Act 2010, schedule 9, part 1. We value diversity, promote equality, challenge discrimination and welcome applicants from people of all backgrounds.
An up to date PVG will be required for this role.
