1 Year Contract

We are offering an opportunity to gain experience in providing specialist support to street sex-working women who become victims of rape, sexual assault and domestic violence.

She will work closely with relevant partner agencies, will be responsible for her own caseload on a daily basis and will work alongside volunteers when engaging in street outreach. She will be a confident, pro-active team worker with great interpersonal skills who can think on her feet and react decisively in pressurised situations, and be passionate about supporting some of Bristol’s most vulnerable women to make positive changes in their lives.

One25 is a Bristol-based, registered charity (no.1062391) with a Christian ethos providing services for women trapped in street sex-work and those who are building positive new lives away from the streets.

It is an Occupational Requirement that applications for this post are open to women only, as permitted under Schedule 9, Part 1, of the Equality Act 2010. An enhanced DBS disclosure will be required.
