Here at WAIS, what we do is really important. We save lives. In the UK 1 in 3 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime and in Nottingham we’re here to support those women and children experiencing or escaping it.

A qualified accountant, or qualified by experience, you’ll be excited about the challenges and opportunities facing the charity sector and passionate about the work we do.

We’re the sixth largest accredited domestic abuse charity in England. We’ve been around for almost 40 years and in that time we’ve built up a real depth of knowledge. We currently have 85 employees and an annual turnover in the region of £2m.

WAIS is an ambitious and resourceful charity, passionate about helping women and their children move forward to live their lives free from abuse. In a year, we answer around 10,000 calls on our helpline, support over 6,000 women and 260 children.

You’ll work with our Treasurer and Board of Trustees to ensure we make the best use of our resources and assets and comply with financial and fundraising regulations.

With responsibility for managing the Finance Officer, Finance Administrator and General Administrator, you’ll lead the team to help the organisation achieve its strategic and business objectives.
