A secondment opportunity has come up for voluntary sector staff to join Clinks for 18 months to lead Clinks' race and justice work.
Clinks is the national infrastructure charity supporting charities and social enterprises working with people in the criminal justice system and their families in England and wales. We have been providing this support since 1997 and we’re proud of our achievements on behalf of a sector which provides vital support to people in increasingly difficult situations at a time of challenge and opportunity in their lives.
The race and justice co-ordinator is responsible for leading and co-ordinating Clinks’ work which aims to strengthen the voice and specialist organisations led by and providing support to black, brown and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people in the CJS and their families. For the purposes of brevity this JD uses the term BAME but we recognise the limited and problematic nature of this term.
This role represents people from a BAME background within criminal justice voluntary sector. The post holder will need to understand relevant structures and build relationships with key partners across sectors. They will engage with government priorities by supporting, promoting, and representing BAME led organisations. They will identify voluntary sector priorities and ways in which Clinks can address these. The post holder will work independently and with other Clinks staff to deliver events, training, and support voluntary sector engagement around BAME related concerns relating to criminal justice.
The post-holder will work with our network of organisations providing specialist services for people from a BAME background in the criminal justice system to ensure we are meeting their needs, sharing their knowledge, and amplifying their voices to improve policy and practice.
