Do you want to make a real difference to survivors of sexual violence in Highland, contribute to changing attitudes and perceptions, and work towards the prevention of sexual violence? If so, we have an exciting opportunity to join our small but committed team in a leadership and management role.

We are a charitable organisation that provide person centred, therapeutic emotional support and advocacy for anyone in the Highlands aged 13 or over affected by sexual violence, and actively work to prevent and eliminate sexual violence in all forms.

You’ll oversee all three core areas of RASASH’s activity – support and advocacy; prevention and campaigning and working with agencies to improve responses to survivors of sexual violence. You’ll also take part in local and national partnership meetings giving you the opportunity to influence sexual violence support and prevention work more broadly.

This is an exciting time to join us as we look to take RASASH to its next stage of development, including the expansion of our service to meet the unique geographical challenges we face. If you are able to bring an active commitment to feminist leadership and governance, experience in leading and managing, including strategic planning and management of budgets and funding, then we would love to hear from you.

Flexibility in working hours and some travel to the central belt will be features of the job. This is a permanent post though subject to continued funding. It is part funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

These posts are open to female applicants only as this is deemed to be a genuine occupational requirement under Schedule 9, Paragraph 1 of the Equality Act 2010. We welcome applications from women with disabilities, LGB, BME and trans women of all ages.

Closing Date: 5pm Thursday 14 February 2019. Late applications will not be considered. Interviews will be held in Inverness on Thursday 22 February 2019.
