  • Full time
  • £21,000
  • Ayr office with hybrid working
  • Closing 14th October 2022

  • Advertised from 23rd September 2022


Action Against Stalking (AAS) was established as a charity in 2014 by its Founder/Chief Executive, 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, engages with the communities to promote greater awareness and resilience, and contributes to national policies on stalking.

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, which has more than doubled in the past year. We have received additional funding from the Scottish Government for the next 3 years and are expanding our unique and empowering Throughcare Service for victims of stalking. We are stepping up our prevention and community engagement to raise awareness and community resilience as a crucial part of early and effective intervention.

AAS is recruiting a highly motivated Community Engagement and Support Officer 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. You will have a track-record of being a high-achiever; driving excellence; and making things happen. You have experience working across a variety of social media platforms and social media scheduling tools. You are keen to bring your ideas and enthusiasm in supporting the continuous development and expansion of AAS. You have a track record of embracing equality, diversity and inclusion.

This is a full-time and fixed-term post, funded till the end of June 2025. The post may develop and be extended, subject to securing continued funding and satisfactory delivery of the key result areas.
