Women’s Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. Over the past 40 years Women’s Aid has been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs. We are a federation of over 220 organisations who provide more than 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country. Our campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationships and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.
This is a role to support a busy, remote project team who are implementing Change that Lasts – our needs-led response to domestic abuse which will transform support to those experiencing domestic abuse across sectors. The role is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
You will be booking travel for team members, arranging venues for large external meetings, setting up team meetings, taking minutes and helping to collate documents. An enthusiasm for organising people, bringing order to busy diaries and basic excel skills are important and experience with project work is preferred.
