A career with Women for Women International means working alongside a dynamic, ambitious and passionate team in the UK, US, Germany and our country offices.

Our UK office is currently based in Central London, with great transport links and lots to do in the area. As an office we organise monthly social activities, including book clubs, pot-luck lunches and film screenings. As a member of our UK team, you can also participate in or volunteer at our exciting events throughout the year.

We are committed to personal development for our team. You will have the opportunity to attend training workshops for personal and career development, as well as participating in our staff training days and weekly all-staff meetings. With some roles, travel to visit our country offices may also be an option.

We offer a generous 25 days annual leave, with an additional day added for each full year of service, as well as generous sick pay allowance, compassionate leave, and maternity/ paternity and adoption leave. We are very open to flexible working arrangements, as well as working from home where suitable.

We are united by common values and ways of working, which we revisit as a team on an annual basis, and all staff participate in creating and owning together. You can see our 2019 UK team values here.
