RAINN's National Sexual Assault Hotline (NSAH) is a 24/7 service available to survivors of sexual violence. NSAH staffing is divided into three primary shifts: morning, evening, and overnight. There is one senior shift manager per shift. As a key member of the NSAH management team, the evening senior shift manager helps ensure high quality services and stable operations on the hotline, as well as advocates for the needs of the evening shift. The evening senior shift manager achieves this by guiding a team of shift managers in their efforts to support survivors, executing projects and creating tools to ensure that hotline services are reliable, predictable, and consistent with RAINN's trauma-informed practices. This person will ensure that shift managers and staff have the support they need to prioritize their wellbeing. The evening senior shift manager will work to strengthen hotline infrastructure by proactively identifying solutions to staff and operational needs, and in collaboration wit the NSAH program manager and other senior shift managers, ensure that policies are implemented consistently across shifts.
