Available Positions
Directors Recruitment – Highland Rape Crisis & Sexual Abuse Service


Rape Crisis Scotland is working with our local partners in the Highlands to establish the new Highland Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Service based in Inverness.

We are seeking to recruit people with the skills, knowledge and experience to support the establishment of this new organisation’s Board of Directors. You do not need to know everything there is to know about sexual violence but we do need to know that you are committed to our ethos and values.

The Board of Directors will play a critical role in ensuring the strategic development of the organisation and making sure it is accountable for the services it provides to women and men aged 13 and over.

As a Director, you will be required to contribute to the governance of the organisation including attending board meetings and the AGM. You may be asked to undertake other duties such as representing the organisation at external events; or assisting with fundraising, networking or influencing work.

In return you will receive all reasonable expenses, a comprehensive training and support programme and the knowledge that you have helped to support women and men with their experiences of sexual violence as adults and/or as children.

We seek a diverse range of people with a commitment to the work we do from across Highland. Applicants with knowledge and experience of governance, employment & HR, finance & funding and strategic work would be very welcome.

The successful candidates will be subject to PVG checks.

If you would like more information on this please come along to our open evening on the 30th April 2014, 5pm – 7pm at the Glen Mhor Hotel, Inverness.

To register for this event and/or to find out more information please get in touch with Sandie at 0141 331 4187 or Gillian at 01463 704724

Trustees sought for Rape Counselling & Resource Centre, Kilmarnock


To coincide with restructuring as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, the Rape Counselling & Resource Centre (RCRC) in Kilmarnock is seeking new trustees to enhance its Management Committee.

The Rape Counselling & Resource Centre provides a vital, free, specialist support service, including counselling, complementary therapies and information, for women and girls living in East Ayrshire who have experienced any form of sexual violence, recently or in the past.

We would like to encourage applications from women who have a broad range of life and professional skills and with an interest in providing a supporting role for other women in our community. Previous experience not necessary however, women with a good understanding of the financial and governance needs of a small charity, funding and income generation, knowledge of employment, HR, business skills and entrepreneurship would be welcome additions to our growing team.

Trustees hold voluntary positions but can be reimbursed expenses, which can include costs of transport to and from meetings and any training undertaken with us. New Trustees will be given induction and support on appointment to the role.

Women interested in becoming a Trustee for RCRC should email for an application pack and further information.

How to volunteer

Our centres could not provide the support they do without many women giving their time, energy and commitment as volunteers and unpaid workers.

We welcome contact from women interested in becoming members of our collectives. Full training is provided and specific details are available from each centre. If you are interested, find contact details for your local centre here.
