Do you want to make life better for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse?
Galop, the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity, is seeking someone passionate about improving life for the LGBT+ community in the UK to be our new Executive Assistant.
Galop works directly with thousands of LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence every year. 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.
We run three national support helplines: for LGBT+ victims and survivors of domestic abuse, survivors of so-called “conversion therapy”, and LGBT+ people who have experienced hate crime. We provide advocacy services, both in London and nationally, for LGBT+ victims who need longer-term support. We are person-centred, empowerment-based, and trauma-informed – meaning our focus is always on helping our clients decide what is best for them and then supporting them through their journey.
We use what we learn through working on the frontlines with clients to work on national and local policy changes, to improve outcomes for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse and violence. We build evidence through key pieces of research, like our upcoming report on LGBT+ experiences of sexual violence.

Due to the nature of the role, it is anticipated that this role will work mostly from the Galop building in central London, but can support one day a week working from home.
At Galop, we believe that life should be safe, just and fair for all LGBT+ people, and that includes our staff in the workplace. We believe in equity and understand the importance of inclusion for staff with a wide range of lived experiences. 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 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion plan in place, currently focusing on equity and inclusion for trans and BAMER members of staff. We are committed to listening and learning, and to constant improvement. We believe it is our job to make sure that all our staff, particularly those from minoritised backgrounds, feel welcome, safe, and able to thrive at Galop.
