IRISi, an award-winning social enterprise established in 2017 to promote and improve the health care response to gender based violence, is looking to recruit a new Regional Manager. The post is home-based. Work will involve attendance at both virtual and in-person meetings (dependant on COVID guidelines) so you need to be willing to travel as required.
Our Vision is a world in which gender based violence is consistently recognised and addressed as a health issue.
Our Mission is to improve the healthcare response to gender based violence through health and specialist services working together.
We are a second-tier organisation, usually providing services and support to other organisations, rather than delivering front-line services.
IRISi’s flagship programme is IRIS (Identification and Referral to Improve Safety), a general practice based domestic abuse (DA) training, support, and referral programme. The organisation supports the local commissioning, implementation, maintenance, and growth of the IRIS programme. IRISi’s work also includes bid development, training for trainers, ongoing support, national analysis, and monitoring. IRISi collaborates with partners to develop innovative, evidence-based health interventions for those affected by gender-based violence and offers expert advice and consultancy in the field of domestic abuse and health. We are working towards having a suite of evidence-based health, domestic abuse and sexual violence programmes that can be commissioned locally.
