Children’s Refuge and Move on Support Worker
Here at JUNO, what we do is really important. We save lives. In the UK 1 in 3 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime and in Nottingham we’re here to support those women and children experiencing or escaping it.
We’re the sixth largest accredited domestic abuse charity in England. We’ve been around for almost 40 years and in that time, we’ve built up a real depth of knowledge. We currently have 85 employees and an annual turnover in the region of £2m.
JUNO is an ambitious and resourceful charity, passionate about helping women and their children move forward to live their lives free from abuse. In a year, we answer around 10,000 calls on our helpline, support over 6,000 women and 260 children.
The Children’s Support Worker is responsible for the support of children within the Zola refuge and Move On accommodation. The support worker will be expected to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the work with the children meets their individual needs as appropriate with regard to families’ cultural, religious backgrounds, any special needs and to actively combat stereotypes.
JUNO is committed to equality and diversity and encourages applicants from BME, lesbian or bisexual backgrounds.
In our annual staff survey, 95% of our employees would recommend JUNO as an employer, 98% stated that they feel proud to work for JUNO while 100% consider that JUNO is an inclusive organisation that values diversity.
Unfortunately, we do not accept CVs.
