Percival is excited to be working exclusively with Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA) in its search for a new Corporate Development Manager. In this newly created position, the postholder will be responsible for driving new business and nurturing partnerships particularly within the financial services sector whilst influencing key audiences and stakeholders to help grow and diversify SEA’s income.
At Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA), the team tackles one of society’s biggest issues. One in six women reports that a former or current partner has controlled or is controlling their economic resources – money and the things it can buy such as food, clothing, transportation, and housing.

Yet too few people are aware of economic abuse – even those who experience it.
