Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis
Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis

Charity registered in Scotland SC006595

Since 1976 the Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis Centre has been providing free and confidential support to women and girls who have been raped, sexually assaulted or sexually abused, no matter when this has happened in their lives. For as long as the Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis Centre exists, we will be committed to providing services for women and girls and challenging the attitudes that support and condone male violence against women. We support women whether or not they have reported the incident to the police. We are based in Glasgow but also offer services to women in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire and Inverclyde. GCRCC knows that women and girls of all ages and backgrounds experience rape and sexual assault, and it can happen at any time in their lives. Because this is usually perpetrated by men they know, women and girls often don’t report due to fear, shame or the feeling that they will be blamed or not believed.

Top job! Deputy Director

  • Full time
  • £44,624 – £47,959
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 28th February 2024

Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis (GCRC) exists to promote the welfare, and relieve the distress, of women and girls who have experienced rape or any form of sexual abuse or exploitation during their lives. They operate with a commitment to promoting and responding to survivors needs through an empowerment model of work, reducing the impact of sexual violence by supporting, educating, informing, and advocating for survivors.

GCRC take a proactive stance against the oppression of women and girls, challenging systemic issues and societal attitudes toward sexual violence. Their approach both aims to educate and empower, with the goal of transforming perspectives and fostering a society that rejects all types of violence against women and girls.

They provide a comprehensive array of services aimed at addressing the diverse needs of survivors. These services include Triage and Support, Justice and Community Support, Training, Education and Prevention. GCRC provides support to approximately 3000 women across Glasgow and Clyde per year. Each service offered by GCRC has been strategically developed to empower survivors and ensure they can access support in a safe and preferred way.

To support them in achieving their ambitions, GCRC are actively seeking dedicated and passionate women to join them as their new Deputy Director. As the Deputy Director, you’ll be part of a team of inspiring women that are responsible for the overall strategic direction of the organisation, overseeing the overall day-to-day operations, and ensuring compliance of the process and policies of the organisation. GCRC, like many women's organisations, has transitioned from a collective working model to a feminist governance model.

As the Deputy Director, you will be a dedicated and compassionate individual who will play a pivotal role in shaping the centre’s impactful initiatives. Your commitment to empowering survivors and fostering a community of understanding will be truly inspiring. You will work tirelessly to ensure that the centre remains a safe haven, offering not just healing but also advocacy and education. Through tour leadership skills, GCRC will become a symbol of strength. Breaking the silence surrounding sexual violence and paving the way for a future where survivors can reclaim their lives with resilience and courage.

This is a fantastic opportunity for women from all walks of life, the Deputy Director will articulate the feminist values of GCRC and their fundamental belief that violence against women and girls has at its root, the unjust imbalance of power between men and women, and that this reflects deep rooted and structural inequality in our society. If you have demonstratable experience in over seeing day-to-day operational delivery, and have assumed responsibility for the development, implementation, and monitoring of annual business plans, risk registers, budgets, and compliance with operational processes and policies then we would love to hear from you.

Please note, applications are open to women only, covered by the occupational requirement exemption (Schedule 9, Part 1) of the Equality Act 2010.

2 x Triage Support Workers

  • Full time
  • £27,033 – £29,445
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 18th June 2021

Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis provides support and advocacy services to women and girls from age 13 years who are survivors of any form of sexual violence, abuse or sexual exploitation, no matter when this has happened in their lives. We connect with a range of partnerships locally and nationally and are part of the national network of rape crisis services across Scotland. Our funding comes from a range of central and local government funds and trusts and grants.

We have a gendered definition of all forms of violence against women and girls and this is reflected in our work and in all our policies and protocols. The charity delivers a range of discrete services across prevention and education, as well as core services, and advocacy to enable women to be supported through the criminal justice system, and to navigate available services.

We are currently in a period of exciting change and growth in the organisation, and are looking to recruit 2 Triage Support Workers funded by the National Lottery Community Fund as well as identify candidates who could form part of a waiting list for future opportunities later in the year.

Our posts are open to women only applicants as we are a woman only service, covered by the occupational requirement exemption under the Equality Act 2010.

We are looking for women with a commitment to our values and who have the right skills and aptitudes to fit into the organisation. Whilst experience of delivering services to those who have experienced sexual violence is desirable, this is not essential as training will be given. What matters is a real commitment to supporting women, and to creating relationships that enable women to survive abuse, and lead fulfilling lives. We are particularly interested in women who have experience in mental health, advocacy, homelessness, substance use or criminal justice services but are looking to bring their experience into a new field.

The posts are Glasgow based in our city centre premises, but some staff are currently working from home some or all of the time. The expectation is that a return to full office-based working will be achieved as Covid restrictions are eased. Some travel around the City of Glasgow and surrounding local authority areas will be necessary. Membership of Disclosure Scotland will be required to work for us.

Top job! Director

  • Full time
  • £45,000
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 10th June 2021

Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis provides support and advocacy services to women and girls from age 13 years who are survivors of any form of sexual violence, abuse or sexual exploitation, no matter when this has happened in their lives. We are part of a national network of rape crisis centres, and connect with a range of partnerships locally and nationally to both deliver services, and to influence policy and practice in this area. Our funding comes from a range of central and local government funds as well as to a lesser extent some trusts and grants.

We have a gendered definition of all forms of violence against women and girls and this is reflected in our work and in all our policies and protocols. The charity delivers a range of discrete services including prevention and education work. We have specific programmes for BAME women, and also provide support for women as they engage in the criminal justice system.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the organisation as its Director, to lead the organisation in its next period of change and transformation, necessitated by our learning from the pandemic, and the conclusions of an organisational review last year. Following the retirement of our Centre Manager, we have had the benefit of some interim leadership support to begin to reset our strategy, and our approach to services. We are now looking to appoint the permanent and substantive post of Director to lead the organisation in its next exciting phase of development.

Our posts are open to women only applicants as we are a woman only service, covered by the occupational requirement exemption under the Equality Act 2010.

We are looking for a leader who can fully articulate our values, and our fundamental belief that violence against women and girls has at its root, the unjust imbalance of power between men and women, and that this reflects deep rooted and structural inequality in our society.

The successful candidate will have experience of leading an organisation where standards of care, and person-centred approaches are paramount. You will be an exceptional relationship builder and be able to attract funding and develop partnerships that will sustain Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis. As a leader, you will have experience of building teams, and supporting change, with a leadership style that promotes empowerment, and values the contribution of others.

The post is Glasgow based in our city centre premises, but some staff are currently working from home, some or all of the time. The expectation is that a return to full office-based working will be achieved as Covid restrictions are eased. Some travel around the City of Glasgow and surrounding local authority areas might be necessary. We welcome applications from people looking to work flexibly in respect of location and working pattern. We will actively support applications from those wishing to job share. Successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced disclosure before they can work for us.
