The mission of Everyman Project is to benefit the community by eradicating domestic violence and abuse and by relieving victims from the effects of violence and abuse. It does this by providing in-depth counselling to people who want help to change their violent and abusive behaviours, as well as by offering practical and therapeutic support to survivors of domestic violence. The counselling programme consists of a series of one-to-one counselling sessions followed by a series of group counselling sessions. First registered with the Charity Commission in 1996, Everyman Project is a long established charity. The Trustees registered the charity with Companies House in 2005 to additionally become a limited company. Referrals come from Social Services, GPs, family and criminal courts, solicitors, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, as well as self-referrers who find EP by word of mouth and by the website.
Each year around 2.1m people suffer domestic abuse. The Early Intervention Foundation estimated that in 2016-17, late intervention in domestic violence and abuse cases would cost the NHS £2,479 million, police £879 million, justice system £1,230 million, and local government £642 million. Evidence suggests that re-offending rates are high, and by some estimates, they are higher than for any other category of offending. Everyman Project enables individuals stuck in cycles of violence to reclaim their lives and often the lives of their loved ones by breaking cycles of domestic and other interpersonal violence.
The founder and current leading member of staff intends to retire this year, and the Board of Trustees/Directors is seeking to replace him with a dynamic new CEO, able to lead and promote the organisation effectively and provide the vision necessary to take the organisation forward. This will initially be a part time post, starting at the equivalent of two days per week, possibly increasing in line with the resources of the company and the preferences of the post holder. Pending satisfactory performance at the 6 month review, the post will be ongoing. The Board acknowledges that the current level of part time working and salary (£36,000 pa, FTE) are themselves insufficient remuneration for the challenges the CEO would have to face. That is why candidates must be motivated to help the community by making a positive difference to the domestic violence sector. If the CEO is successful at fundraising, greater remuneration would be readily approved by the Board.
With the support of a capable and motivated new CEO, Everyman Project will be able to develop and grow to be of even greater benefit to the community. The successful applicant will be rewarded with a role enabling her or him to make a significant positive impact on the lives of many individuals, as well as on their children and partners, and indeed on the wider community, by working towards relieving the affliction of interpersonal violence, and in particular domestic violence.
