|Contract Type||12 month fixed term|
|Working Hours||Part-time- 15 hours per week|
The post holder will be responsible for responding to calls and emails made to the helpline for supporting victims of intimate image abuse, also known as ‘revenge porn’, across the UK. The role will involve responding to calls and emails, offering advice and support that will help to resolve the issue. Significant time will be spent searching for content such as images and video, and reporting this to the platforms for removal. Often this content is hosted on adult websites and the post holder will be exposed to very graphic content while undertaking this work. Appropriate support and clinical supervision will be offered to staff to help deal with this.
Responses will be both written and verbal. It is anticipated that in order to help the callers, liaison with a range of external organisations and stakeholders will be required, such as service providers, professional associations and unions, in particular with the internet industry, police and legal advisors.
