SARSAS exist to relieve the trauma of people affected by rape and sexual abuse at any time in their life. We couldn’t do it without our passionate and dedicated staff and volunteer team who are all committed to supporting people to rebuild their lives after sexual violence.

Working at SARSAS

  • 27 days of annual leave pa plus bank holidays
  • time off in lieu
  • the option of hybrid-working (commitments of role allowing)
  • paid sick leave

“I started my journey with SARSAS as a volunteer on the helpline. It is immense privilege to now be part of the staff team and work with such a dedicated, compassionate group of people. I learn so much every day and love working in such a dynamic and supportive environment”
Lisa, SARSAS Communications Manager

However, I find supporting clients who have had negative experiences while seeking justice some of the saddest journeys, and the ones most likely to invoke my anger at the injustices within this broken system.
