Job description

At Family Action we transform lives by providing practical, emotional, and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage, and social isolation. We have been building stronger families since 1869 and today we work with more than 60,000 families in over 150 community-based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants.

Portsmouth Rape and Abuse Counselling Service (PARCS) delivers a wide range of projects focused on young people and adults and involves work with individuals and groups within the community. 

This is an exciting opportunity to lead the PARCS management team and drive the ambitious plans for growth alongside Family Actions Deputy Director for South. You will need to be committed to and sensitive to an agenda of change as PARCS works to extend its reach within the local area and beyond. We are looking for someone who is motivated, passionate, and wanting to make a difference to the lives of those PARCS works with while ensuring the highest standards of quality and client experience are upheld.

You will have an excellent track record as a Service Manager and will work closely with the Deputy Director to ensure the effective management and development of PARCS, enabling the safe and effective delivery of trauma informed services while working innovatively to extend its impact.  You will have extensive management experience and a track record of working with people who have experienced trauma.

You will have experience of managing complex budgets and forecasting, approaches to income generation and managing stakeholder relationships.

You will be client centred and committed to ensuring there is equality of access to the PARCS services and that service users are treated with dignity and that their specific needs are prioritised to improve their sense of wellbeing.

The post holder will hold a minimum NVQ Level 4 qualification or equivalent in the relevant discipline such as health, social care, counselling, therapy, education, or youth work. They will bring an experience of managing complex interventions and service models focused on trauma and promoting resilience. The post holder should be committed to continued professional development and have an exceptional knowledge of underpinning theories of practice models and interventions and their application.

You will have a strong track record in service delivery and a focus on quality, performance, safeguarding and management controls. With a client-facing approach you will be passionate about engaging our service users in all aspects of our work including co-production. We want to hire a ‘can-do’ and energetic leader who will build and sustain positive working relationships with key commissioners and future funders, while developing partnerships that will continue to evolve and effectively meet the needs of everyone the service supports.

This role will be office based in Portsmouth though some working from home / hybrid arrangements will be considered on an individual basis. There will be the expectation of travel within the South region as required as a member of the wider South Regional management team for team meetings and events as required.

We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Family Action. We know that greater diversity will lead to even greater results for families and children and strive for our workforce to be truly representative of the diverse communities we support. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants and will reimburse your travel cost if you attend an interview.
