Solace is an innovative, exciting, grassroots charity working across London. Our purpose is to bring to an end the harm done through domestic and sexual violence to all survivors, particularly women and children. Our work is holistic and empowering, working alongside survivors to achieve independent lives free from abuse.
About the Service
The Sexual Health project was piloted in Islington last year and we are very excited to share that this project has expanded and will now cover Camden and Barnet. From late 2021, the Sexual Health project will cover a further sexual health clinic in North London and will continue to provide high-quality holistic support to survivors of sexual abuse and violence who approach the sexual health clinic. As with all Islington SASS services, the Sexual Health project is inclusive to all survivors, but this project has a specific focus on increasing the engagement for LGBTQ+ survivors.
About the Role
The Sexual Health Team Leader is a new and exciting role that will sit in the Islington SASS team and will oversee this exciting partnership expansion. The role will include line management of three or four Sexual Health IDSVAs and will act as the Sexual Health lead for the Islington DSM.
If you demonstrate commitment, innovation, passion, non-judgemental and collaboration, you'll thrive in our diverse feminist team of professional women.
Ideal candidates will have experience working with victim/survivors of sexual abuse or violence and a solid understanding of the support options available to them. You will have strong leadership skills, thrive on working under pressure, and be adept at crisis management and prioritising your workload to meet the demands of this busy service.
In return, we offer great employee benefits including three per cent employer pension contribution, generous holiday entitlement and a focus on learning and development.
Solace Women's Aid values diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applicants from black minority and ethnic communities.
This service is run by women for women and is therefore restricted to female applicants under the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 9, and Part 1. Section 7(2) e of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 apply. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
As part of safer recruitment we require all successful candidates will be required to complete a satisfactory DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) disclosure.
