Are you a proactive, highly organised and friendly team player with solid administrative knowledge? Are you seeking a dynamic and engaging role which offers a wide range of experience and development in key areas of charity work? Would you like to play an important role in working towards a world where women have equal economic rights and opportunities to men?

Since 2010, we’ve directly supported over 200,000 women entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries through our business skills and mentoring programmes, and influenced global change to close the gender gap in entrepreneurship through our advocacy work. We’re looking for an enthusiastic and energetic individual who is eager to make a difference to join our team as our new Senior Research and Database Officer and help us achieve even greater impact!

This will be a position that you can truly make your own, where you will play a key role in enabling our work by supporting our fundraising and ensuring our charity is strong and efficient. This dynamic and engaging position offers the unique opportunity to work and gain experience within two key departments. The role sits within the Corporate Services team, however your time will be split equally between that and the Partnerships (fundraising) team, providing high-quality, essential support, research and admin services across fundraising, partnerships development, finance, human resources, IT and general administration. Given the wide variety of support required you will need to be willing to adapt and respond to the needs of both departments and the wider organisation if needed.

Your work will enable the Foundation to operate efficiently and effectively, and grow its income and partnerships, thereby achieving long term, sustainable growth for the Foundation and supporting incredible impact for women entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries. If you are looking to learn and develop a wide range of skills in a values-driven and fast-paced charity environment, and to contribute to long-term global development and women’s rights, then this is the role for you.

This is a full time, permanent role at 35 hours per week, with core office hours being 10.30am to 3.30pm. Our team is currently hybrid working from home and office, and you’ll need to work from our central London office (W1) a minimum of two days a week.

This role’s starting salary is £26,370 PA, and this will increase annually as you move up in your pay grade. You’ll be entitled to a fantastic package of 28 days of annual leave (which includes three that must be taken at Christmas), plus plenty of other benefits and a caring, supportive, collaborative work environment. Our team also enjoys high-quality training and other development and enrichment opportunities.
