The Magdalene Group has been supporting people affected by sexual exploitation for over 23 years. We have built an excellent reputation for engaging those hardest to reach, whilst delivering well-run, evidence-based programmes to suit individual needs. Our expertise makes us well placed to recognise the routes into sexual exploitation, provide effective prevention, early intervention and services for those affected. We are constantly striving to adapt our services according to the needs presented to us.
EnRoute is a new aspirational and therapeutic supported accommodation service for females, aged 16 – 18, who have been affected by child sexual exploitation. We are seeking an exceptional staff team who can deliver this cutting-edge work, deal effectively with challenging situations and behaviour, build sustained positive relationships and provide the best possible outcomes for young women as they transition into adulthood.
Our approach is to safeguard young women in a community setting, where they can learn how to manage risk, receive specialised therapeutic support and develop self-esteem, whilst living somewhere welcoming, nurturing, homely and safe. We aim to build positive relationships to provide opportunities for the future.
We are pleased to soon be opening our first home for two young women, with a second and third home planned over the next year.
This is an exciting opportunity to manage a home providing specialist and therapeutic services. We are seeking a highly motivated person, with a proven track record, who can establish this innovative, caring therapeutic home; who has a thorough understanding of the needs of young people, and who will take responsibility for leading a team of staff, comprising house-mother, support workers and therapeutic workers, to provide the best possible outcomes for young women.
Please return completed application forms to Vivienne or post to 61 King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH.
