  • Part time

Action Against Stalking (AAS) was established as a charity in 2014 by its Founder/Chief Executive, Ann Moulds, following her successful Campaign Action Scotland Against Stalking, which led to the introduction of the ‘Offence of Stalking’, Section 39 Criminal Justice & Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010. The charity champions the voice of stalking victims, provides a free and specialised service to victims, engages with the communities to promote greater awareness and resilience, and contributes to national policies on stalking.

This is an exciting time to join AAS. We have been acknowledged in Scottish Parliament in 2020 for our achievements as the only stalking-specialised charity in Scotland. Our success has led to increased awareness and demand for our services, which has more than doubled in the past year. We have received additional funding from the Scottish Government and are also expanding our unique and empowering Throughcare Service for victims of stalking. We are also stepping up our prevention and community engagement to raise awareness and community resilience as a crucial part of early and effective intervention.

AAS is recruiting a highly motivated individual to lead the charity into the next phase of development in achieving our aspirations, including expansion of the team. Appointment of a new Chief Executive (CE) will enable our Founder to resume being a member/Trustee of the Board. We seek a CE who has a passion for promoting the interests and values of AAS; and who shares our commitment in championing the rights of victims of stalking. You will have a track-record of being a high-achiever; driving and delivering excellence; working in meaningful partnerships and making things happen. You have a track record of embracing equality, diversity and inclusion.

This is a part-time (21 hours per week) post and fixed-term post funded until the end of June 2025. The post may develop and be extended, subject to securing continued funding and satisfactory delivery of the key result areas. Salary £50000 per annum full-time, pro-rata part-time post.
