JOIN THE TEAM
If you are interested in applying please don’t hesitate to have a look at our current vacancies. We host regular meet and greets with the team both in-person and online so you can find out more about us and meet our team and our Alumni. Make sure to sign up for our next event or catch up on a recording from our most recent workshop.
Excited but feeling a bit unsure about if these roles are for you? Don’t worry! Sign up here to make sure you’re notified of any new role that’s posted, or speak to a staff member at a meet-and-greet to discuss more.
Finally, let’s also name the elephant in the room! Sometimes we all experience a bit of imposter syndrome. At the Advocacy Academy, we lean into this feeling. We believe that imposter syndrome is a manifestation of the oppression many of us face on a day to day. You don’t have to tick all the boxes for each role to apply. If you feel a pull towards a specific role and believe you could make a different we would love to hear from you!
We aim to be representative of the community we are working with. We encourage applications from people of colour, those who identify as LGBTQIA, working class as well as differently abled people, those living with mental health conditions, refugees and migrants. We welcome people from all identities who are made to feel marginalised. Whilst these applications are encouraged, there are some roles at The Advocacy Academy which present some limits that may mean it is not suitable for some applicants. We have flagged any such limitation in each distinct job specification.
We’re not just committed to being an equal opportunity employer, we actively celebrate diversity in all its forms. Let us know if we can do anything to make the application or interview process more accessible. If you are invited to interview, we will at that point ask you for any accessibility requirements or preferences.
As an employer we make all reasonable adjustments to support employees in their work if they are disabled or have a health condition. We will support any application to the Government’s Access to Work scheme which could provide you with financial support to get the help you need to do all tasks successfully. We are happy to facilitate Access to Work assessments and reclaims, and would actively welcome applicants who would need this in order to do the job.
All staff who work on our programme must have, prior to starting work, a returned satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) dated no earlier than 1st January 2021. The Advocacy Academy will assist the application for, and pay for the processing of, a new DBS for staff members where required.
We welcome applications from people with convictions. Please disclose in your application if you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not “protected” (as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013)) . We consider each person on their own merits, taking into account all the circumstances.
