Vida Sheffield is a charitable women's organisation delivering specialist trauma focused and gender sensitive therapy services to women and girls. We also offer bespoke training in trauma-informed working, and promote campaigns to tackle the underlying causes of domestic and sexual abuse, and in particular Violence Against Women & Girls [VAWG].

Your ethos and approach should match those of Vida, with an understanding of gender-based violence and the barriers faced by survivors with different needs and life experiences. You should be passionate about ensuring that our services are delivered in line with our vision, and survivors are at the centre of all of our work.

You will be joining us at a time of growth for the organisation – Vida have undertaken a strategic review and planning process in consultation with our 7 staff, volunteers, Trustees and service user reps from our Women’s Voices service user involvement group.

Due to the nature of the role we will be considering women applicants only, in accordance with the provisions of the Equality Act 2010 [pursuant to Schedule 9 part 1] as a genuine occupational requirement. Vida are committed to actively valuing diversity – we seek applications from women from all backgrounds and communities.
