Women's Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. Over the past 44 years, Women's Aid has been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice, research and policy. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.

We are a federation of over 180 organisations who provide just under 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country. We provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies and professionals working with survivors or commissioning domestic abuse services and award a National Quality Mark for services which meet our quality standards. We hold the largest national data set on domestic abuse and use research and evidence to inform all of our work. Our campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationships and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.

This new role, as the Head of Finance, will provide strategic leadership on finance issues for Women's Aid, as well as hands on finance teamwork and support, plus support for the HR and Operations team.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the deployment of new systems to make our processes more efficient and accurate; develop new improved approaches and provide guidance to the Executive Team and Board.

As the Head of Finance, your ability to provide empathetic support and leadership, and to negotiate with diplomacy, will be allied to your excellent financial skills and experience in a charity of a similar size.
