Anti-Violence Worker (one-year contract with possibility to renew)

 

For women who want to join the women’s liberation movement!

 

Closing Date: September 30th, 2019 

 

We are looking for energetic women who are not afraid to mop the floor, sit with a woman through a pelvic exam or argue with a police officer, sometimes all in the same day. You will do a combination of work required to operate a 24-hout rape crisis centre and a shelter for battered women and their children. We are a feminist organization run by a collective. In addition to a rape crisis centre and shelter we provide support, education and action groups; recruit and train volunteers; raise money and initiate public discussion about sexist violence. You will adapt quickly to this unique job situation that will require your best empathy skills, thinking skills and determination to be someone that makes a difference. You will be challenged and supported to think and act effectively on behalf of raped, sexually assaulted and battered women. Please visit us online for more information about who we are and what we do at www.rapereliefshelter.bc.ca

 

Skills we are looking for include basic office skills, ability to get informed about social services, community services, and current events. You can think and speak independently and apply your knowledge effectively. You will have an informed opinion and you will assist your co-workers (volunteer and paid) to do their best work.

 

Credentials will only be valued as much as work experience. We are especially, but not only, interested in applications from Indigenous women, working class women, women of colour and lesbian women.

 

Apply by email at with your resume and cover letter. We thank those who send in applications. Please be advised that we will only be able to contact those applicants we choose for short listing. Position will remain open until filled.
