About Safety4Sisters

Safety4Sisters was established in Manchester in 2009 to address the exclusion of migrant women (particularly those with ‘no recourse to public funds’) from the most basic rights of safety and protection.

We work toward this through our policy work – highlighting strategies and practices that exclude migrant women from protection within statutory and voluntary provision; through educating and challenging organisations and the public to uphold the human rights of migrant women – and bearing witness and documenting where this does not happen; and through the creation of spaces for sisterhood in which the individual stories of migrant women – their experiences of disempowerment and struggle for survival – are transformed into collective stories and collective action.

About the role

You will provide information, advice, support and advocacy work on all forms of gender-based violence faced by migrant women, including forced marriage,  rape and sexual abuse, honour-based crimes and related issues such as immigration/asylum and no recourse to public funds, matrimonial and children, housing and homelessness, mental health and financial matters. Your casework will focus on women with complex needs. 

How to apply

If you are interested in applying for this role, please download the Job Description and complete the application form. Please send your completed application to admin@safety4sisters.org

We strongly encourage Black and minoritised women and/or women with first-hand experience of the immigration system to apply. Due to the nature of our work the post is restricted to women. The Occupational Requirement under Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.

Closing date: 15th July 2024, 12pm

Interview date: Week beginning 22nd July
