We are looking for an experienced manager with excellent leadership skills to help us realise our vision of a world free from domestic abuse through the development and delivery of effective specialist services.

With primary responsibility for the strategic development of our Adult Community Services, this is a demanding  role where you must be able to manage complex and conflicting priorities.  You will be involved in multi-agency and partnership working so building strong relationships is essential as is motivating and leading a team of committed front line professionals.  You will regularly carry out presentations and represent the organisation at internal and external events.
