The National Rape Crisis Helpline is recruiting a Helpline Coordinator
Rape Crisis South London (RASASC) has been running the Rape Crisis National Helpline since 1985 and has a reputation for excellence. The helpline is open 365 days a year to women and girls from 13 years old who have survived any form of sexual violence. We offer specialised confidential emotional support and referral information to organisations around the U.K., playing a vital role in ensuring survivors of sexual violence receive the help and support they deserve.
We are looking for that special person to join our happy and passionate all woman organisation to lead a team of Helpline volunteers, manage the day to day operation of the Helpline, provide statistics to funders and bring innovation to the Helpline.
You should have a sound understanding of violence against women and girls, (although training will be given), be able to represent the organisation to outside agencies, assist in the recruitment and accredited training of volunteers, monitor and evaluate the Helpline, liaise with other departments in our committed organisation and be part of the movement that is Rape Crisis.
We would like you to have excellent organisational and leadership skills as well as being efficient and empathic and able to work on the Helpline on occasions as well as a firm belief that violence against women and girls can be ended.
We believe too many women have had to be silent for too long about the abuse perpetrated against them. We understand that after such silence it can be difficult to speak up at all, to find the words or to believe that anyone will listen. The helpline is here to support survivors to help them find their road to recovery.
