Job title: Children & Young Persons Independent Sexual Violence Advocate (CYP ISVA)

Organisation: RASASC / Rape Crisis Centre


Closing date: 10am, Thursday 29th July

Job description: Our team of Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVA) offer support to women and girls aged 13 and over who have survived rape and childhood sexual abuse in South London and who are thinking about reporting to the police, or who have reported, throughout their journey in the criminal justice system. Your role will be to provide a mix of emotional, practical, and factual support so survivors have all the information they need to make informed decisions that are right for them. You will understand the barriers young survivors face when accessing the criminal justice system and work closely together to advocate for their needs within the system. This role is a new and exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of new ways of working with young survivors aged 13-25. In partnership with the ISVA Manager and Senior ISVA, you will develop a keen understanding of best practice when working with young survivors and support most young survivors that are referred to the ISVA team. We are looking for a friendly, organised, self-motivated, and empathic woman who can help us improve the support we offer Children and Young People as we move into a new phase of the ISVA service. The woman we are looking for should have demonstrable experience working with children and young people who have survived sexual violence and an understanding of working in a trauma-informed way. You will hold a case load based on your experience and we will provide clinical supervision, full training and line management, and the opportunity to develop your skillset and any specialism you can bring to this role and your work.
