Director of Finance and Operations

Young Women's Trust
Angel, London
Circa £80,000 per annum.

Young Women’s Trust champions young women aged 18 to 30 on low or no pay. We’re here to create a more equal world of work and raise young women’s incomes. We offer young women free coaching, feedback on job applications and information to help them get where they want to be. We bring together a network of thousands of young women to support each other, build their self-belief, and have their voices heard. We work with young women and anyone who experiences misogyny and sexism to campaign for equality in the workplace. And our research provides insight into what young women’s lives are really like, fuelling our campaigns for change.


We are looking for an experienced financial leader to help build the capabilities within the team as well as support the Board as we increase our focus on driving social change and grow our impact.

We need a dynamic, collegiate and engaged leader who is able to work effectively across an organisation, is supportive of their peers and brings an inclusive and empowering approach to leadership. You will have a strong eye for detail and will welcome the chance to engage with all aspects of our organisation, from day-to-day financial control, to ensuring we’re a great place to work, to leading on larger operational projects. You will bring strong interpersonal skills and the ability to move between the strategic and operational aspects of the role with ease.  Above all, you will share our passion for what we do and what we’re trying to achieve with young women.

We are open to candidates who have experience gained in a wide range of sectors but you will need to bring an understanding of what constitutes good charity governance and of charity funding for this role (this could be in a trustee capacity).

As we seek to become an anti-racist organisation and bring an effective inter-sectional focus to our work on equity and inclusion you must also be able to meaningfully demonstrate where you’ve led or supported work of this kind within your field.
