JOB DESCRIPTION

The Director of Client Services works closely with survivors – mostly adult women but also girls, LGBTQ individuals and others – who are escaping forced marriages. The Director of Client Services gets the opportunity to:

  • Conduct intakes;
  • Create and implement escape plans;
  • Advocate for survivors’ needs and connect them with crucial resources;
  • Provide ongoing emotional support;
  • Coordinate an annual client retreat;
  • Oversee a case manager, occasional interns and hundreds of volunteers; and
  • Educate the public and key groups and testify before legislators about forced and child marriage in the U.S.

QUALIFICATIONS

You might be a good fit for this position if you:

  • Hold an advanced degree in social work, psychology or a related field;
  • Have at least five years of applicable professional experience, preferably providing services to trauma survivors;
  • Are endlessly compassionate and patient – but can also be a badass;
  • Are ridiculously organized; and
  • Feel passionately about Unchained’s mission.

NOTE: A internal study at HP found women applied for a promotion only if they met 100 percent of the qualifications, while men applied if they met 60 percent. Women, don’t be a statistic! If you want this job, go for it.

LOCATION

Unchained’s office is centrally located in New Jersey and about a 40-minute direct train ride from New York Penn Station. (The office address is confidential.)

ABOUT UNCHAINED

Girls, women, LGBTQ individuals and others across the U.S. are being pressured, tricked, threatened or beaten into marriage, usually by their own parents. For them, marriage often means a lifetime of rape and domestic servitude.

Unchained is the only organization dedicated to providing comprehensive, often life-saving legal and social services and emotional support — always for free — to help women, girls and others in the U.S. to resist or escape their forced marriage. Unchained also is the only organization dedicated to promoting social, policy and legal change to end forced and child marriage in the U.S.

A day at Unchained is rarely dull. Members of the small but feisty Unchained team are followed frequently by news and filmmaker cameras and travel around the U.S. to testify at legislative hearings and to Chain-In, in bridal gowns and chains, to protest forced and child marriage. In just the last few years, team members ate dinner with Chelsea Clinton, watched Trevor Noah perform and got tattoos together to commemorate Unchained’s historic legislative victories.
