We’re hiring an Administrative and Training Support Officer

Are you passionate about eradicating violence against women and girls? AVA (Against Violence and Abuse) is a leading UK charity committed to ending gender based violence and abuse. We work with survivors to champion evidence based change. We have particular expertise around multiple disadvantage and children and young people. Our groundbreaking work includes “Complicated Matters”, the Commission report “Breaking Down the Barriers” and the online resource “Ask AVA”. All of our projects involve meaningful roles for women with lived experience. Our portfolio of activities encompasses groundbreaking project and research work, face to face and online learning and survivor focussed consulting and evaluation work. We take a trauma and gender informed approach to all of our work. 

Role overview 

The post holder will be an important part of our busy training and consultancy team, but she will work across AVA to support our work in tackling all forms of gender based violence. We require a flexible and proactive administrator to contribute to the smooth running of our training and consultancy work across AVA. This will require excellent customer service skills – supporting trainees to access our training, responding to training and new business requests in a timely and efficient manner and supporting the Director of Training and Consultancy to evaluate the impact of our training (and wider) AVA offer. 

This is a full time post, but we would be willing to consider a four day a week contract, or individuals who wish to apply together as a job share (we cannot broker job sharing arrangements). We offer a degree of flexible working. The post will initially be home based due to Covid restrictions, although our office is Covid secure and the successful candidate must be able to attend regularly at our office in Vauxhall, South London once that resumes.
