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.

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