We do this primarily through psychological therapies but also services which document torture forensically, practical legal and welfare support and creative groups.

Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers – as well as thousands of passionate supporters and funders – thousands of torture survivors have been able to rebuild their lives in incredibly difficult circumstances.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Training and Capacity Building Officer. The post holder will be responsible for project managing training and capacity building programmes which aim to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills of external service providers and professionals who work with survivors of torture.

The ideal candidate will have excellent knowledge of Microsoft Office applications, significant experience facilitating design meetings and/or supporting the design of bespoke participatory training programmes, an ability to work and communicate effectively with wide and diverse audiences, and strong project coordination skills, including ability to self-motivate and manage time effectively. Experience of working with survivors of torture, asylum seekers or refugees would be desirable.
