Victim Support

Victim Support is a free, independent, and confidential charity dedicated to supporting anyone affected by crime and traumatic incidents in England and Wales.

Our purpose is to provide specialist help and services, to support people to cope and recover until they feel they are back on track with their lives. We listen with compassion and tailor our support to each person.

 

Our services help people affected by all types of crime and we provide support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We offer support regardless of whether people have reported the crime to the police.

Working at Victim Support

Each year we have numerous job opportunities in England and Wales, in both frontline offices and supporting areas. In frontline jobs you work directly with victims, witnesses and volunteers. In supporting jobs, you work in areas such as bid writing, policy and research, fundraising, communications, information systems, human resources and finance.

Our people are motivated by teamwork, and we are all committed to our values and our vision. We strive to deliver the best possible services to our communities and will support you to develop your skills, knowledge and experience while building your career with us. We offer a range of benefits, including: a flexible working environment, the ability to join any of our six EDI networks (Disability Network, Faith & Belief Network, Gender Empowerment Network, LGBT+ Network, Mental Health & Wellbeing Network and R.A.C.E Inclusive Network), many opportunities for learning and development as well as our bespoke workwell@vs wellbeing resources.

Diversity matters at Victim Support

Victim Support is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe having a diverse workforce at all levels allows us to represent the communities we serve and connect better with people affected by crime. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds. We are a Disability Confident Employer, a member of the Business Disability Forum and a signatory of the Race at Work Charter. We have also been a Stonewall Top 100 employer since 2010, coming 3rd in 2022 and being named the top third sector LGBTQ+ employer. We have also been ranked #5 in the National Centre for Diversity’s 2021 Top 100 employers’ list.
