About Galop

Galop is the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity. Founded in 1982, we have been championing the needs and protecting the safety of the LGBT+ community for 40 years.

Galop works directly with thousands of LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence every year. We specialise in supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of abuse including honour-based abuse, forced marriage, and so-called conversion therapies. We are a service run by LGBT+ people, for LGBT+ people, and the needs of our community are at the centre of what we do.

We run three national support helplines for LGBT+ victims and survivors of domestic abuse, so-called “conversion therapy”, and hate crime. We provide advocacy services, both in London and nationally, for LGBT+ victims who need longer-term support. We are person-centred, empowerment-based, and trauma-informed – meaning our focus is always on helping our clients decide what is best for them, and then supporting them through their journey.

We use what we learn through working on the frontlines with clients to work for national and local policy change to improve outcomes for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse and violence. We build evidence through key pieces of research, like our upcoming report into LGBT+ experiences of sexual violence. We push for legislative change, improved statutory guidance for victims, and better understanding of the needs of LGBT+ people around the country.

About the Training and Commercial Development Officer Role

This role will aid the diversification of Galop’s income generation through our specialist LGBT+ anti-violence education and commercial activities, ensuring the long-term stability of the charity and helping us to deliver support to as many LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse as possible.

This is an exciting opportunity to deliver LGBT+ specialist change and development work, as well as generate income that allows us to meaningfully support the LGBT+ community.

In this role, you’ll work with our Training and Commercial Manager to identify relationship development opportunities, creatively approach learning needs across sectors, and deliver our training and commercial offer.

This is a pivotal moment in Galop’s journey. We have grown quickly over the last six years and you’ll be helping to create a culture of change by increasing knowledge of LGBT+ experiences of abuse and violence.

As a by-and-for organisation, this role has a Genuine Occupational Requirement under the Equality Act 2010 that the post holder has experience of LGBT+ specialist needs and the impact of discrimination. Candidates should demonstrate a thorough understanding of LGBT+ people’s lives, including awareness of the issues that LGBT+ survivors of abuse and violence might face.

Galop’s offices are located in London. Hybrid working is available but the expectation is that you’ll be in the office two days a week. This role may require national travel for in-person trainings.

This role is being offered flexibly leaving the choice to the applicant. The two options are: Full time: 35 hours per week. Part time: 28 hours per week.

FTC (ends March 2025) Ongoing renewal is likely if income generation targets are achieved.
