Job description

About us: 

The Pankhurst Trust brings together Manchester Women’s Aid and the Pankhurst Centre. We work together to ensure the story of the women who won the vote continues to inspire us all to challenge gender inequality, and to ensure that those suffering from domestic violence and abuse get the confidential help they need. 

62 Nelson Street was the home of the Emmeline Pankhurst and her family and was the place where the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union – the movement which became known as the Suffragettes – took place. Saved from demolition by a grass roots campaign in the 1970s and 1980s, the Pankhurst Centre is now the only heritage site in the U.K. dedicated to telling the story of the Pankhurst family and the story of women’s fight for the right to vote. 

Manchester Women’s Aid has over 40 years’ experience in providing vital services to survivors of domestic violence and abuse in Manchester, including refuge accommodation, outreach and education services, and specialist services for marginalised groups. 

The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid) is a diverse organisation with c31% of our staff coming from BAME and c12% from LGBT communities. We span the generations with c11% of staff being aged 18-24 and c25% aged 55-64. 11% of staff identify as having a disability.
