Volunteer Recruitment

Volunteer Recruitment in 2017 – currently closed

The Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre (LRCC) supports women and girls over 12 years of age who have experienced rape and other forms of sexual violence including child sexual abuse, no matter when it happened to them. We deliver our services across both North and South Lanarkshire.  The centre was established in 2004, and we aim to recruit & train volunteers with a range of skills and qualities to help with various areas of our work.

We aim to recruit and train new volunteers at least once a year, but we have so many women and girls seeking support, and our resources are low therefore we have to prioritise where our time is most spent.  We want to continue to grow our volunteer pool, but at this time we have to prioritise providing support to those who require it.  We hope to open our recruitment programme soon.  The following details show the process of recruitment when it opens:

  1. Email with information about why you are interested in volunteer work with LRCC
  2. Acknowledgement in receipt of your email within 5 working days
  3. Information day with recruitment pack
  4. Complete application form and submit
  5. Reference checks
  6. Induction session
  7. Training programme
  8. PVG checks
  9. Probation process

We would also be interested in hearing if you have skills and qualities in the following areas:

  • Management & governance
  • Voluntary sector
  • Legal/legislation
  • Gender based violence
  • Feminism
  • Equality and diversity
  • Funding/fundraising

These positions require female applicants and are exempt under Schedule 9, Part 1 of the Equality Act 2010
