The Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre – Dundee and Angus (WRASAC) has been supporting survivors of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation and raising awareness about the damaging effects of sexual violence since 1984. We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
After 5 years of service with WRASAC our current CEO has decided that it is time for fresh challenges and will leave the post at the end of January 2019. She has helped the organisation to mature and develop, culminating in a number recent successful funding applications, including the Big Lottery.
The CEO and Board have been working hard to achieve their Good Governance Award, which we hope to have completed by the end of March 2019. The successful candidate will be expected to support the board to secure new premises within the next two years.
WRASAC has a dynamic and growing team of staff and volunteers and an annual income of just under £600,000 per year from a diverse range of funders.
We have excellent relationships and partnership working across the Dundee and Angus area and are members of a number of strategic groups, including:
- Dundee & Angus Violence Against Women Partnerships
- Dundee Vulnerable Adolescence Partnership
- Dundee Substance Misuse Strategic Planning Group
- Scottish Government Commercial Sexual Exploitation Working Group
- Encompass Network (network of organisations that work in partnership with people involved in prostitution)
- Rape Crisis Scotland Network
This would be an exciting time to join our organisation to lead us through our ambitious goals over the coming years.
We offer a competitive salary, excellent terms and conditions and the opportunity to gain invaluable skills and experience.
