Current vacancies


Chief Executive

Location: Bristol and London

Salary: circa £90,000 

SafeLives is here for one simple reason: to make sure all families are safe. Under the leadership of founder Diana Barran, SafeLives has become a highly respected organisation that continues to transform the UK’s response to domestic abuse. Diana is stepping down at a time when SafeLives can be immensely proud of its achievements over the past 13 years and has exciting prospects for its future development.

This is a rare opportunity to take on the leadership of an influential organisation performing a genuinely life-changing role. Our new Chief Executive will lead the design and delivery of the next phase of SafeLives’ strategy, and we are looking for someone who genuinely lives our values of being human, rigorous and brave.

You will have a significant track record in a strategic leadership role within an organisation of at least comparable scale and complexity to SafeLives with proven experience of identifying and developing innovative solutions to entrenched social problems. You will be able to demonstrate experience of influencing national policy, building high-level networks and partnerships, and of working successfully with media.

To find out more about this exciting opportunity and for details on how to apply, please download the Appointment Briefing Pack on the Prospectus website.

Closing date: Friday 6th October
