Action Against Stalking (AAS) was established as a charity in 2014 by its Founder/Chief Executive Officer, 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 the communities to promote greater awareness and resilience.

This is an exciting time to join AAS. We are now better recognised as lead for developing responses to stalking and continue to receive Scottish Government funding for this work. Our success has led to increased awareness and demand for its services have more than doubled in the past year. 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 and qualified professional Practitioners. We are recruiting Practitioners who are current members of a relevant professional body. It is essential that they take a solution-focused approach in dealing with the victims; have a diploma and/or degree in counselling, psychotherapy, mental health nursing or clinical psychology; and at least 150-200 hours post qualification working with clients. Ideally, they should be accredited or working towards accreditation with a relevant professional body. Experience of working with victims of crime will be an advantage, and ideally working with trauma- based therapy. This is a part-time and fixed-term post, funded till the end of June 2022. The post may develop and be extended, subject to securing continued funding and satisfactory delivery of the key result areas.
