This is an exciting time to join the Parent-Infant Foundation. We have always been a small charity that punches well above our weight. Now we have a new leadership team, a new strategy, and are keen to ensure we are agile and efficient in our activities. 

About us

The Parent-Infant Foundation is a national charity that bridges the gap between frontline delivery, local commissioning and national decision-making when it comes to parent-infant relationships in families with the most complex and persistent difficulties. Our mission is to support the growth and quality of specialised parent-infant relationship teams across the UK. 

You can find out more about our work here on this website.

About the team

As an organisation we are a small team of seven that work flexibly and from home, meeting up at least monthly as a team and connecting daily through other channels. We care about each other and the work that we do and strive to reach our mission of increasing the support for parent-infant relationships across the UK.  We are a great charity to work for, offering 25 days per year (pro rata) annual leave, 5% employer pension contributions and good general support.

We are keen to hear from you if you have existing experience in roles such as finance manager, company secretary, or similar.  Please read the job description and person specification before applying.
