Job title: Deputy CEO

Organisation: Women in Prison


Closing date: Monday 18 January 2021, 12pm

Job description: Women in Prison is a national charity providing services to women in communities and prison (including women's centres in London, Manchester and Surrey), and campaigning for radical reductions in the womens prison population. Our vision is for every woman to have access to the kind of specialist trauma-responsive services that we provide, so that she can move forward with her life, based on her own strengths and decisions. We are looking to appoint a Deputy CEO to lead on the development and delivery of our services and on our organisational development, including our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan. Could you be the leader we are looking for? Are you passionate about delivering high quality services for women? Strong communication and team building skills, a coaching style of management and a deep understanding of the impact of trauma are essential. This is an exciting opportunity to make this new role your own, to shape WIPs organisational development and to join us for a new era of delivery, including mobilisation of the Creating Community Connections project connecting women in prisons with womens centres (funded by the Tampon Tax Fund), which WIP is leading with womens sector partners. As WIPs Deputy CEO, you will have a rare opportunity to lead change and help build a different system of justice - a system that works. We are committed to inclusive working practices, and particularly welcome applications from anyone with lived experience of prison or the criminal justice system and women from Black, Asian and minoritised communities. We welcome applications from anyone regardless of their age, disability, ethnicity, heritage, and socio-economic background, and will make any reasonable adjustments. The role is only open to women, in accordance with the sex-based exemptions of the Equality Act 2010 pursuant to Schedule 9, Part 1.

Location: Primarily at home during the pandemic with 1 day in our London office – or remotely if not based in London

Type: Full time

Salary: £50,000 per annum
