Job description

Thanks to significant new funding TLC: Talk Listen, Change is growing and are looking for a manager to lead new Drive Projects in Bury and Rochdale.

TLC: Talk, Listen, Change is a dynamic, leading relationships charity based in Greater Manchester. 

The Drive Partnership - Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance – believes domestic abuse is not acceptable or inevitable. Drive works with high-harm, high-risk and serial perpetrators of domestic abuse to prevent their abusive behaviour and protect adult and child victims. And it works. A study by the University of Bristol shows that the Drive intervention reduces abuse.  

The role
In this role you will be responsible for managing the operational, financial and strategic delivery of the Drive Project, and developing relationships with external stakeholders. If you’re passionate about ending domestic abuse and interested in ensuring perpetrators are risk managed and supported to change, we want to hear from you. 

About you

You will, through collaboration and influence, deliver impact and improvements to

the effective running of the Drive project managing a team of Case Managers and

developing a multi-agency infrastructure with local stakeholders.  You will

understand the context of working in the Domestic Abuse Sector, with

demonstrable abilities to translate this into effective delivery and outcomes for

individuals. You will also have knowledge of Safeguarding legislation and

experience of managing Safeguarding issues. Above all you will have a solution

focused attitude to providing positive leadership in a changing environment. 

We want you to feel empowered to bring your best to this role, so we encourage flexible working around core hours. We offer an annual continuous Professional Development allowance, generous annual leave entitlement and Birthday leave.

About us

Funding secured will enable TLC: Talk, Listen Change to grow our work with perpetrators of domestic abuse, their partners, and families. Over the coming twelve months, we are expanding existing programmes and developing several new ones, reaching considerably more people than we ever have before, and pioneering new approaches in this crucial area of work. This is a pivotal time for 

TLC: Talk Listen Change and we are looking for enthusiastic, experienced, engaged and highly motivated people to join our rapidly expanding team.
