Job description

Do you want to make life better for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse?

Galop is the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity, working with and for LGBT+ victims and survivors of interpersonal abuse and violence. We specialise in supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of abuse including honour-based abuse, forced marriage, and so-called conversion therapies. We are a service run by LGBT+ people, for LGBT+ people, and the needs of our community are at the centre of what we do.

Galop’s Young People’s Service works with LGBT+ young people aged 13-25 who have experienced violence or abuse, many of whom face complex and high risk situations. The service also engages with young people on issues of consent, relationships and community; and promotes awareness and best practice amongst professionals.

About the Role

Galop is pleased to offer a part-time opportunity for an LGBT+ person with experience in working with young people to join our Young People’s team. This post is for 14 hours per week, with some flexibility about how hours are worked during the usual working day. It is a temporary post associated with parental leave, so would suit someone with other commitments who wants an opportunity to join our experienced and dedicated team and build experience in working with LGBT+ young people.

The post holder will receive full induction but due to the time limited nature of the role we are looking for someone with the aptitude to be able to pick up frontline client work quickly and some prior experience of young people’s advocacy or other relevant work.

As a Young People’s Advocate, you will have awareness of the lives of LGBT+ young people and understanding of the challenges they might face in relation to abuse from families, partners and peers. You will be a good communicator and able to pitch your working style to suit LGBT+ young people aged 13 to 25, while maintaining a high standard of safe, ethical practice and a robust approach to safeguarding. You will demonstrate the ability to work clearly and cooperatively with statutory agencies and other support services in the interests of your clients.

Our team works with young people facing, at times, serious situations, including so-called corrective practices, honour based abuse, forced marriage, hate crime and sexual exploitation. We therefore emphasise a trauma informed approach and look for team members who are reflective in their practice, positive about self-care, and keen to join a close-knit team which works together to share knowledge, skills and support.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion at Galop

At Galop, we believe that life should be safe, just and fair for all LGBT+ people, and that includes the experiences of our staff in the workplace. We believe in equity and understand the importance of inclusion for staff with a wide range of lived experience. No matter your age, race, faith, orientation, gender identity, disability, or class, we want you to feel welcome here. To that end Galop has a multi-year EDI plan in place, currently focusing on equity and inclusion for Trans and BAMER members of staff.

The Young People’s Service works with a diverse group of LGBT+ young people and we actively welcome applications from LGBT+ People of Colour and/or Trans and Non-Binary applicants to reflect our clients’ lived experience.

Please note that there is a genuine occupational requirement under the Sexual Orientation Regulations 2003 for this post. It is considered essential that post holders have experience of LGBT+ needs and the impact of discrimination.
