Who are we? 
We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone, for good.  

We work with organisations across the UK to transform the response to domestic abuse. We want what you would want for your best friend. We listen to survivors, putting their voices at the heart of our thinking. We look at the whole picture for each individual and family to get the right help at the right time to make families everywhere safe and well. And we challenge perpetrators to change, asking ‘why doesn’t he stop?’ rather than ‘why doesn’t she leave?’ This applies whatever the gender of the victim or perpetrator and whatever the nature of their relationship.  

Together we can end domestic abuse. Forever. For everyone. 
 
Purpose and position context 
The Innovation team works with partners across traditional sector boundaries to understand the complexity of domestic abuse and its links to other experiences. We lead our organisational Authentic Voice, placing it at the heart of all we do, supporting SafeLives Pioneers and survivors across communities to turn their experience into expertise and use their unmediated voice to influence practice and policy, and lead change. 

The role requires a motivational communicator with strong interpersonal skills; bringing transparency and honesty to build equitable and trusting relationships with experts of lived experience and practice.  You will lead a small project team and react confidently and pro-actively in a rapidly changing environment bringing expertise and leadership to support a wide range of work streams. 

You will combine all our values with your comprehensive and innovative practice experience and creative mind-set, focussing on working alongside survivors and partners to coordinate and facilitate innovative, dynamic and pragmatic solutions, broadening the variety of ways that help and support is offered and what it looks like.  

You will work enthusiastically across all SafeLives teams to ensure the best possible skillset and expertise is available to scope out and design new pieces of work including research, practice, communications or influencing opportunities.
