The organisation:

Why me? are a national charity delivering and promoting Restorative Justice for everyone affected by crime and conflict. Many victims of crime feel sidelined by the criminal justice process. Restorative Justice gives them the chance to ask questions about the incident, explain the impact that it had on them, and have a say in how the harm can be repaired.

To be responsible for the day-to- day leadership, management and development of the organisation including reporting to the Chair, together with being responsible for the organisation’s strategic leadership.

To represent Why me? to Government, Whitehall, parliamentarians, the media and other stakeholders by sustaining the organisation as a respected and known voice for people affected by crime and conflict in the public policy domain and ensuring the development of constructive policy positions.

Ability to develop innovative policy proposals and to identify and capitalise on opportunities to influence policy and practice as well as being highly credible with a proven ability to build effective relationships with, and to influence a wide range of stakeholders, from senior police officers to parliamentarians and victims of crime and offenders.

Experience of developing and implementing successful programmes of work and an understanding of the criminal justice system. Previous practical experience of restorative justice would be useful but not essential.
