About the role:
Do you think it is a national disgrace that in England and Wales two women a week are killed by their partner or ex-partner? Or that one woman in every four will experience domestic violence at some point during her life?
Do you want to work for an organisation that provides a voice for abused women and plays a vital role in ensuring that life-saving services are in place to support them?
Refuge is the country’s largest provider of specialist services for victims of all forms of gender-based violence. Every day we support over 6,500 women and children in our national network of services. We advise Government and lobby to keep violence against women and girls high on the public agenda. At a national level we run award-winning prevention and public education campaigns, manage a busy press office and work hard to build Refuge’s fast growing digital channels. At a local level we respond and provide communications tools to Refuge’s wide base of violence against women services.
