Career opportunities

Local authorities.
The various interventions made by local authorities in the area of gender-based violence (specific counselling, assistance and recovery services; plans for countering gender-based violence; intervention protocols; preventive measures, etc.) mean there is a need for specially trained professionals. Under the 3/2007 Law on Equality this will become even clearer. In fact, town councils are already taking on specialists in this field.

Specialist institutions at autonomous community level.
There are specific public institutions, like the Catalan Institute for Women, and government ministries, with clearly-defined competences in this area, like those of justice, interior and welfare, which are actively involved in this area and which need professionals with a sound socio-juridical background in gender-based violence.

Private companies and unions.
Some forms of gender-based violence have a clear impact on the workplace, such as intimate partner violence and sexual harassment. In both cases specific legal interventions are stipulated, which require professional expertise.

The network of associations is of particular interest to those who can approach gender-based violence from a socio-juridical perspective.

Professionals in general.
