PTMWA is a women-led organisation whose vision is to ensure that people, suffering, or at risk of domestic abuse receive appropriate support. We assist recovery by providing safe accommodation, specialist support services and by working in partnership with other agencies. We also run the only museum dedicated to telling the story of women’s fight for the right to vote at our Pankhurst Centre headquarters.
We are a diverse organisation with 28% of our staff coming from BAME and 20% from LGBT communities. We span the generations with 11% of staff being aged 18-24 and 25% aged 55-64. 11% of staff identify as having a disability.
Our staff, volunteers and service users have recently taken time to reflect on who we are and what we do when we are at our best. This reflection showed that we can proudly claim to be:
Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change
Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters
Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together
Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging
You will be a pro-active, reliable individual who reflects the values of PTMWA in all that you do. Your experiences, whether in paid or voluntary work, will enable you to fulfil the role requirements but it is your attitude and character that will make you a successful team member.
You will enjoy a challenge and actively participate in delivering and developing services of the highest standard.
