Action Against Stalking (AAS) was established as a charity in 2014 by its Founder, Ann Moulds, following her successful campaign Action Scotland Against Stalking, which led to the introduction of the ‘Offence of Stalking’, Section 39 Criminal Justice & Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010. The charity champions the voice of stalking victims, provides a free and specialised service to victims and engages with communities to promote greater awareness and resilience.

This is an exciting time to join AAS. We have been acknowledged in Scottish Parliament in 2020 for our achievements as the only stalking-specialised charity in Scotland. Our success has led to increased awareness and demand for our services has more than doubled in the past year. We have received additional funding from the Scottish Government and are also expanding our unique and empowering Throughcare Service for victims of stalking. Be part of the dynamic team establishing ground-breaking developments for AAS to be an even stronger voice for victims of stalking.

The AAS unique Throughcare Service for victims of stalking is delivered by experienced practitioners. We are recruiting a highly motivated individual who has a passion for promoting the interests and values of AAS; and who shares our commitment in championing the rights of victims of stalking. Applicants should be experienced in working with victims of crime or trauma. It is essential that they take a person-centred approach in dealing with the victims. They will have a track record of embracing equality, diversity and inclusion. This is a part-time (14 hours per week) and fixed-term 12-month post. The post may develop and be extended, subject to securing continued funding and satisfactory delivery of the key result areas.
