We are committed to equal opportunities in employment. Because of the purpose of our organisation, only women are eligible to apply to work or volunteer at the Refuge under Schedule 9 (Part 1) of the Equality Act 2010.
EViE (Ending Violence in Essex) is an ambitious partnership of three domestic abuse support charities who have each operated in Essex for over forty years. As of 1 April 2019, Next Chapter, Safe Steps and Changing Pathways are responsible for the delivery of high risk, community and accommodation based support services for survivors of domestic abuse as part of the recently commissioned Essex Integrated Domestic Abuse Services (EIDAS) contract.
We have also recently been successful in extending the funding for Recovery Refuge project and in gaining funding to start a new project providing support to children and young people in the community for the first time.
As a result of this we have a range of opportunities for highly motivated and empathetic individuals to fulfill roles across the organisation, supporting survivors of domestic abuse.
Our approach to supporting survivors of this devastating crime is holistic; assisting the survivor to address their immediate safety needs whilst setting them on a pathway to recovery from their traumatic experiences; more positive outcomes in their lives and the lives of their children; and a sustained exit from domestic abuse.
This is an exciting time to be joining our organisation, particularly as we seek to fill roles which we hope will start as we begin to emerge from the current lock-down and look to how we can support our communities in whatever way is possible.
