Hours: Full time, 35 hours per week 

Contract: Fixed term contract until the end of March 2025 (possible renewal thereafter dependent on funding)

Closing date: 25th February 2024 at 11.30pm

About us 

SurvivorsUK exists for men and non-binary people who have experienced sexual abuse, sexual assault or rape. 

We support – by providing services such as a helpline, counselling, ISVA and groupwork. 

We challenge – by raising public awareness of the issue, and dispelling myths 

We build – by creating and facilitating networks for better access to help 

We provide emotional support, information and signposting to survivors and anyone worried about someone they know, through a national website and webchat service (open until 8pm most evenings). Last year, 2,600 people contacted us via our webchat services and social media. 

In London, we are the only organisation providing specialist services for men and boys, including individual counselling and therapeutic groupwork. Across London, we provide the capital’s only Independent Sexual Advisor (ISVA) Service that helps men and boys through the criminal justice system. 

Purpose of Role 

You will provide proactive emotional, practical and advocacy support for male and non-binary survivors who have experienced any form of sexual violence and are engaging (or considering engaging) with the criminal justice system.

Our ISVAs work with clients currently residing in any London borough, or if the abuse was committed in any London borough. Some travel to London will be expected.

An ISVA qualification or relevant degree is desirable, but not essential. We consider people from a wide range of educational backgrounds and work experience. What matters is that you are empathetic and will support the specific needs of our clients.
