Job description

35 hours per week

Domestic abuse has blighted women’s lives throughout history. We’ve been helping women in London recover from its effects since 1996. Our specialist counselling transforms the mental health and wellbeing of women who have suffered physical, emotional or sexual abuse, financial exploitation or coercive control, and we have assisted well over 15,000 people to date. Add your skills to our all-female team and you can help thousands more on the road to recovery. 

As our Communications Manager, you will be responsible for planning and delivering effective communications that reach, engage, motivate, and resonate with media, clients, fundraisers, and policy makers across a range of channels.

We are the largest independent charity providing free and confidential mental healthcare to domestic abuse survivors throughout London. This role is vital in ensuring that the public and key stakeholders understand the impact of our work; that we can generate more support and funding for what we do, helping more women as a result; and that we can influence public policy to ensure even more survivors of domestic abuse have access to specialist mental health support.

We are looking for someone with a strong news sense and a demonstrable background of proactively getting organisations involved in the conversations that matter – while reflecting the confidential nature and sensitivities around domestic abuse and mental health. We want to proactively generate more awareness of our work, capitalising on our unique position in the women’s and mental health sectors.

Our ideal candidate would also have experience of working on fundraising and awareness campaigns; and the ability to create content on social media in line with branding guidelines. Experience in developing communications strategies and reporting on Key Performance Indicators are essential.

In return, you can expect exceptional career satisfaction plus a package of benefits including: 

  • Flexible working
  • 25 days’ holiday rising to 30 after five years (pro rata for part-time working) 
  • 3% pension contribution 
  • Comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme  
  • Cycle-to-work scheme
