Working for BCWA is extremely rewarding. Our team works with drive and passion to change policy, practice and people’s lives. Each of our skilled staff places victims’ voices at the heart of all they do, whether they work in support, administration, management or fundraising.
BCWA also offers staff a range of opportunities to grow and flourish, through our training and development programmes.
I did my degree in Criminology & Social Policy and worked in social research before joining BCWA in 2015. I wanted to work for Women’s Aid as I think their work is vital to women & children’s safety. My first role was Community Champions Co-ordinator in Dudley and I then worked as DA Advocate in Sandwell. Now I’m a Female Offender Program Facilitator: an ideal combination of my interest in support work with my background in Criminology.
