We are Advance, a women-only organisation dedicated to helping women cope and recover from experiences of domestic abuse, as well as women who are at risk of offending or with short term sentences to reduce offending.

As a result of significant growth over the past two years to £3.5m income and circa 90 staff, Advance is now able to provide vital specialist women’s services across London and in partnership on national projects.

We are eager to do even more for vulnerable women and girls. As such, we are looking for a Fundraising Manager to join us at our Head Office in Hammersmith and expand funding for our charity.

As a women-only organisation, our cause resonates with our employees on a personal level. We are passionate about empowering women and girls to lead safe, non-violent, equal lives so that they can flourish and, ultimately, help to create a better world.

Our values are to listen and support, to empower and respect, to collaborate and innovate and remain accountable in all we do. If you believe you could make a difference as part of our team, we want to hear from you.
