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, engages with the communities to promote greater awareness and resilience, and contributes to national policies on stalking.

Our charity’s work has been acknowledged in Scottish Parliament for our achievements as the only stalking-specialised charity in Scotland. Our success has led to increased awareness and demand for our services. We receive funding from the Scottish Government and elsewhere that allows us to deliver and expand our work, including our unique Throughcare Service for victims of stalking.

We are recruiting for a highly motivated and innovative Chief Executive (CEO) to take the charity into the next phase of development and support us to achieve our aspirations.

We seek a driven, strong team leader who will have 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; political astuteness; driving and delivering excellence; working in meaningful partnerships and making things happen. You will have a track record of embracing equality, diversity and inclusion.
