Job Description

Can you listen calmly and with empathy to a boy who has experienced sexual abuse? A non-binary person who was raped? The partner of a man sexually assaulted?

You will offer emotional support, information and signposting via webchat, email, SMS, Whatsapp and phone to men and non-binary people who have experienced sexual abuse, and their loved ones.

This is a flexible, rewarding role with the chance to make a difference to the lives of people who reach out for support. Last year 2,600 contacted us. No two chats are the same.

Our emotional support services are open 12pm-8pm, Monday-Sunday. We have a regular shift pattern available (working fixed, part-time hours), as well as flexible, zero-hours positions (working ‘as and when’).
