Role

We are looking for candidates who have experience of working with women with complex social needs. You will be working as part of Another Way, a service that works with women involved in or at risk of selling or exchanging sex. The role will have a focus on providing outreach to women who are street-based and working indoors, as well as providing one-to-one support.

You must have experience of providing assertive outreach to ‘hard-to-reach’ groups, as well as an excellent understanding of the support needs of women involved in the transactional sex. You will need to be an effective communicator, highly organised and have effective casework management skills. It is essential that support provided is non-judgmental and respects the wishes of the women we engage with.

You will work closely with other partners and agencies and be expected to ensure the continued development of good partnership working. Experience of working with women involved in transactional sex is desirable.

Membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme is a requirement this post.
