About The Access Project:
The Access Project is an innovative education charity that helps bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain places at top universities. We support over 1,800 young people aged 14 to 18 across 35 schools.
The Access Project is expanding to become a national organisation. We work in London, the West and East Midlands, grew into West Yorkshire last year, and are expanding into the North West from September 2022. We have a team of 72 employees working in schools and in our regional offices.
A strong commitment to evidence and impact is at the heart of how we work, and we are proud that independent research shows our students achieve higher grades and are more likely to progress to top universities than similarly disadvantaged peers. We are a team passionately committed to our mission, and who support one another’s work. We are committed to improving The Access Project as a place to work for all our people and have developed a new People Strategy. We also recognise we have a way to go before we are the fully inclusive and diverse organisation we want to be, and are developing an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strategy with support from external consultants and engagement from staff and trustees.
About the Partnerships and Communications Director role:
The Access Project has developed an innovative programme that has strong evidence that it addresses a huge social issue. We have also learned much about what it takes to shift the dial in helping disadvantaged students make it to a top university. We’re now aiming to double in scale with the aim of helping even more young people fulfil their potential and make it to a top university.

We are in the early stages of creating a donor development board – “Friends of The Access Project” - to engage new and existing individual supporters and their networks. There is huge potential to be bolder in promoting our impact; through our website, social media and through in-person networks. As part of our work to broaden our appeal, we are seeking mission-aligned patrons who will help us to reach their followers and amplify our work.

There is a director-shaped hole at Southall Black Sisters. Will you be the one to fill it?
Southall Black Sisters is looking for an exceptional woman with that mix of political vision and management & people skills which will ensure that the organisation retains and grows its iconic place in anti-racist, anti-fundamentalist, feminist politics, and provides an exemplary advocacy service to Black and minoritised women.
Originally set up in 1979, Southall Black Sisters has become a household name. Based in West London but with a national reach and reputation for its landmark legal interventions, its contributions to changes in policy through targeted campaigns and its unique approach to casework and advocacy have brought hope and freedom to countless women who have walked through its doors.
In 1983, we set up a not-for-profit advice, campaigning, resource, and advocacy centre for Black and minoritised women, defending women’s rights and freedoms, with a particular focus on challenging all forms of violence against women, especially in relation to South Asian women. We have been in the forefront of the fight to support migrant women whose escape from domestic violence is complicated by harsh immigration rules and the absence of state benefits.
Be prepared to challenge the state, community leaders, and all patriarchal and racist institutions in support of the women who come to our centre. You should bring substantial experience in a management role, including 5 years at a senior level. You should be committed to our values and have the experience and confidence to present our case to a range of external bodies, including the media and government. You should be able to demonstrate evidence of strategic leadership, and an ability to manage change, and inspire staff teams.
Due to the nature of our work the post is open to women only (exempt under the Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, Part 1). We particularly welcome applications from Black and minoritised women.

Over the next three years we will aim to sustain and grow our annual voluntary income above £1m. To achieve this, we need to look after our individual supporters, philanthropists, and corporate partners to a very high level, inspiring them to continue to make regular donations and multi-year commitments.
We need to grasp this moment in time, by further raising our great reputation to highlight our ability to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and connect more people with our natural and built environment.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about our work and able to build strong relationships with our supporters, including corporate partners, philanthropists and Trust and Foundations. You should be able to demonstrate experience of successful business development and/or fundraising. More important is your ability to work within our culture – which means being creative, caring, honest and enabling.
