Refuge is the UK’s largest provider of specialist services for victims of all forms of gender-based violence (domestic, sexual, so called ‘honour’ violence, modern slavery and human trafficking, prostitution, forced marriage, stalking and FGM). Every day we support over 6,000 women and children in our national network of services. These include Independent Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence Advocacy services (IDVAs/ISVAs and IGVAs), community outreach, specialist refuge accommodation, sanctuary services, culturally-specific services and the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline. We advise Government and lobby hard to keep violence against women and girls high on the public agenda. We run award-winning prevention and public education campaigns, manage a busy press office and website, and we are an accredited training provider. We give a voice to the voiceless.
Refuge is looking for an exceptional celebrity and influencer manager. This is an exciting new opportunity for an experienced professional to join a small, high achieving, growing team at one of the UK’s leading charities at a time when domestic abuse and gender-based violence is high on the social and political agenda. The successful candidate will fulfil a vital role in helping Refuge to steward its amazing base of celebrity and high profile ambassador, champions, influencers and supporters whilst driving forward an ambitious new supporter recruitment programme of work.
The successful candidate will be highly motivated and have demonstrable experience of stewarding and recruiting high profile people who are diverse in every way; domestic abuse affects all women, irrespective of race, background, age, religion – and we want our high profile supporter base to reflect all women with whom we work.
All candidates must demonstrate a commitment to the feminist values of empowerment and equality which underpin all of our work. Successful applicants will be expected to work within Refuge’s Values and Behaviour Framework and demonstrate these in their everyday work.
