Liberty Project Team Leader 37.5 hours/week, £26053, pro rata

An exciting opportunity has arisen to help shape and design new areas of A Way Out’s Women’s service across Cleveland.  We are seeking to recruit a dynamic and experienced team manager, with previous experience in this field to the role of Liberty Project Team Leader to coordinate and lead this service. 

A Way Out is an outreach and prevention charity with a difference which aims to engage, empower and equip vulnerable and excluded women, families and young people to live lives free from harm, abuse and exploitation and to reduce life limiting choices and behaviour.

The Liberty Project is an outreach, engagement and recovery service for survival sex workers in Teesside that provides specialist support for complex, vulnerable and exploited women around a range of issues such as substance misuse, homelessness, exploitation, sex work, offending behaviour etc... It aims to provide clear pathways and improve access to key services and is delivered with an understanding of trauma, a focus on recovery and safety

The project includes evening and late night outreach, low threshold drop-ins, group work and one to one support using a strengths based approach to empower the women we work with. A strength of the project incorporates our ability to reach out to the women within the community, police custody and prison who often struggle to engage with more mainstream support services.

It is an Occupational Requirement that applications for these posts are open to women only, as permitted under Schedule 9, Part 1, or the Equality Act 2010.  Enhanced DBS checks will be required.

Applications should be submitted via the A Way Out application form and sent to anita.burke@awayout.co.uk
